HTC Imagio gets previewed on video

You might not be able to get your hands on one until next Tuesday but we have a little treat this morning for Windows Mobile fans waiting impatiently for the HTC Imagio. Apparently a Verizon Wireless distributor has thrown caution to the wind and decided to preview the unreleased handset in great detail on YouTube. From front to back and top to bottom, the video walks you through just about everything you’ll need to see in order to decide whether or not this puppy is for you. So if waiting another five days to examine Verizon’s first Windows Mobile 6.5-powered handset is just too torturous for you, hit the jump and enjoy eight solid minutes of WinMo 6.5 action.

Thanks, Mr. Hi-Def!

HTC-Whitestone

It looks as though T-Mobile subscribers will have two big reasons reasons to rejoice come November 11th, but they’re not the only ones with cause for celebration in the near future. Let’s not forget that Windows Mobile fans around the world will have a reason to party well ahead of that; in fact, one of our trusty ninjas has just added to the Windows Phone fray with the juicy tidbit that on October 6th — the day Windows Mobile 6.5 devices lift off globally — Verizon Wireless plans to get in on the action with the HTC Imagio. Codenamed Whitestone and previously mistaken for the Touch Diamond2, the Imagio features WinMo 6.5 along with a 3.6-inch WVGA touchscreen display, a 528MHz Qualcomm processor, 512MB ROM/256MB RAM, a 5 megapixel camera with auto-focus and anti-shake, GPS and GSM connectivity in addition to Verizon’s CDMA/EV-DO connectivity. As a tasty little aside, we’ve heard from a few sources that the HTC Predator will likely land on VZW later in October, though for the time being all we know is that it will run Android. Getting excited yet, Verizon fans?
