One of the first mobile phones to house Windows Phone 7 will be the HTC Mondrian, according to some new leaked information. TechEye covered a Windows Phone 7 ROM leak recently, which showed what the new operating system would look like.
At the time there were rumours about a new HTC device dubbed “Mondrian”, but now we have confirmation of it in the form of leaked photos and specifications.
The details we know so far for the HTC Mondrian come from the XDA Developers forum, where it was discovered that the new device will have a 4.3-inch WVGA Optrex touchscreen display and no physical keyboard.
It will use a QSD8650A/B chipset, which is the only Snapdragon chipset that will allow the new 1.3GHz Scorpion processor, which suggests that the Mondrian may be a beast of a device.
There is also mention of CDMA and GSM, with an application that allows you to switch between the two, but it’s not yet certain if this will be on the finished product or if it’s just part of the test model.
The details are slim and HTC has yet to make any announcement regarding the Mondrian. TechEye has requested comment from HTC on the leaked information but has yet to receive a reply.
