HTC Polaris surfaces

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 5:53PM EST

In the melee of the recent HTC announcement madness, it seems that we all forgot about another exciting release from the Windows Mobile powerhouse. These shots, which are the first known live pics of the device, reveal the HTC Polaris in front of nothing other than the HTC Shift. The handset features HSDPA, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and an FM radio. Pretty stacked in terms of connectivity, if we had to pass judgement. It also appears to sport that customized HTC homescreen plugin that we also find on the HTC TyTN II. HTC has yet to announce or confirm any sort of release timetable or price point info, but given the presence of these test units, we’d guess that a full scale launch isn’t that far off.
