According to site xda.cn, HTC will launch the above handset — the HTC Ignite — in mid-2011, complete with Microsoft’s Windows Phone operating system. The blog has a mixed record when it comes to predicting future hardware, but has acquired accurate, HTC-based information in the past. The listed specs include an 800MHz Qualcomm processor, 3.7-inch resistive touchscreen display, 512MB of RAM, and 5 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash. Something is — obviously — not right here, as 800MHz processors and resistive touchscreens have been strictly forbade by Microsoft’s Windows phone Chassis standards (also: we’re not sure HTC makes a phone, of any kind, with a resistive touchscreen). It’s extremely speculative, but an attractive looking handset nonetheless. Let’s hope that this one does indeed make its way to market with a different rap sheet.
