Default NEW: The HTC Wizard Communicator

HTC Wizard: early photos and specs [ 02:00 ]

Source: http://www.pocketpcitalia.com/

The web site Pocket PC Italia has posted early photos and specs of HTC Wizard communicator, which is positioned to replace HTC Magician(the model known as T-Mobile MD Compact, I-Mate Jam or QTek S100 depending on the operator). The communicator is powered by Windows Mobile 5.0. Its QWERTY-keyboard is pulled out from one side in an unusual manner. Besides HTC Wizard has stereo speakers and a 2.1-megapixel camera with the flash. As this info appeared before the official release, the specs can still be changed.

The specs of HTC Wizard:

* GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz
* EDGE
* Processor OMAP 850 by Texas Instruments
* Memory - 128 MB ROM, 64 MB RAM
* Screen 2.8 TFT, QVGA
* Interface - Mini USB, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi 802.11b and IrDA
* Expansion slot for Mini SD cards
Qtek 9090 & MDA Vario / http://www.tikkel.nl/

ROM Version: 2.18.7.6 NLD
ROM Date: 2/22/06
Radio: 02.07.10
Protocol: 413.1.03
ExtROM: 2.18.7.10

That'll be a shame if it only has a MiniSD hole. I'm sure the 4 & 8GB SD cards will start being available when the Wizard is released. You would have though 128MB too.

Oh well, fingers crossed :)

The Processoer seams nice:

Hope it also uses the complete 802.11a/b/g Functions and not only b.
The chip has also USB-Host!

Both together with Windows Mobile 5.0 and 128MB Rom would be enough for me to switch from my MDA compact to this baby.

But would prefer it without keyboard...

Not sure about the processor - max speed of 200MHz puts me off.

The IPAQ 6340 has a similar Processor (OMAP1510) also with only 200MHz.

In the OMAP1510 is a ARM925 integrated
In the OMAP850 its a ARM926

Only found this benchmarks:
http://www.ppcreviews.net/news_8130.html
But the OMAP1510 runs only at 168MHz so OMAP850@200 should be a bit faster

XScale MHz != OMAP MHz

Ti seems to be pushing this mode of thinking, after all the processor has multiple cores dedicated to separate functions.
However in real life situations, OMAP MHz are exactly XScale MHz, look at the benchmarks. You won't be running FPSCE on OMAP any time soon. Just because it has separate cores for DSP doesn't mean that other devices do their radio DSP in software on the main processor, I can't think of one that does. The only special thing that the OMAP can do is parallel video/audio decoding, but then who runs something processor intensive at the same time as watching video? A 400MHz XScale makes a better job of it in S/W, and is not tied to specific codecs; plus many video chipsets/cores offer some form of video helper functions in hardware too (although it seems certain chipset manufacturers don't want developers to use the features )

The only advantage I can see for OMAP is the cost to manufacture, which of course isn't passed on to us consumers...

Default rough release date

How long do they usually take to release these things after the public find out about them?

Default Another link

Here's another link I found on the Italian website. This should also be the new HTC phone, but doesn't look exactly as the previous posted link?!? (By the way I don't speak Italian. So can't really understand anything else than HTC and the specs.) :?
