The HTC Herald, which looks to be the HTC Hermes’ thinner and younger sister, has just been leaked by someone along the HTC chain. The phone can be considered a “dumbed down” version of the Hermes, thanks to its lack of camera, and lowered CPU speed (200MHz instead of 400MHz). The other specs are about the same, with 64MB of RAM, 128MB of ROM, 2.8-inch screen, QVGA display, miniSD slot, and Windows Mobile 5.0. The slide-out keyboard is also there, thankfully.
Though to people who don’t need the higher speed and camera, not to mention video conferencing, this should be a better phone thanks to is 18mm (0.7in) thickness.
