Now wouldn't this make a nice stocking stuffer for all you Windows Mobile users out there? Mikechannon.net (warning, direct PDF link) - and then Engadget Mobile - posted a photo of the internal HTC service manual for the"Blackstone" phone (aka Touch HD), and it contains this interesting bitof specification-speak:
Translated to layman's English, that means "3G that works on AT&Tin the U.S." Now how about them apples, huh? (Sorry, that's a saying my family used to use when we got excited) While HTC has told you, me,and everyone on Twitter that corporate has no plans to bring Touch HD to the North American market, they also relayed the public outcry for such a phone back to the powers that be in Asia. So could it be that the head honchos listened and told their engineers to stuff some AT&T-compatible 3G into the next rev. of Touch HD?
After my brief in-person encounter with a Touch HD last week, I really hope this is true, and that HTC and AT&T drop the device on our fair shores early next year. Touchflo 3D and basically any high-quality photos or video look astoundingly good on the device, and the phone's form factoris just sexier and more eye-catching than competing WinMo devices like Samsung's Omnia. Also, you know, 3.5mm headphone jack ;-)
More on this as I get it, but keep your fingers crossed right around January 6th ... that's when CES starts.
