HTC ‘Firestone’

Image 1 Image 2

What is this new phone that the ‘net is talking about? – it’s supposedly the ‘iPhone killer’ - the ultimate in mobile phones/PDAs. Dubbed the ‘Firestone’ by its makers HTC, there seems to be two images ‘doing the rounds’ but they may of course both be fake!

Allegedly, the specs are:

  • Quad-band GSM/EDGE connectivity
  • Dual-band HSDPA connectivity (900/2100 MHz)
  • 4.3 inch WVGA (480 x 800) [iPhone: 3.5 inch, 320 x 480]
  • capacitive touchscreen display
  • Wi-Fi
  • GPS, A-GPS
  • Accelerometer
  • Light & proximity sensors
  • 3.5mm headset jack
  • 5MP autofocus camera with dual LED flash [iPhone: 3MP] 
  • 512MB flash memory
  • 320MB RAM
  • MicroSD card support
  • 1230 mAh battery
  • 121 x 67 x 11 millimetres [iPhone: 115.5 x 62.1 x 12.3mm]

That would make it a pretty powerful beastie
