HTC readies second-gen GPS PDA phone

After 'Galaxy', 'Artemis'

Handset maker HTC is preparing the successor to 'Galaxy', the company's PDA phone with a built-in GPS receiver. The new model, dubbed 'Artemis', improves on the older device with a slicker look, a quad-band, EDGE-capable cellular radio and a two megapixel digicam.

So claims a Navigadget report filed recently. The site's list of Artemis specifications also includes a 200MHz Texas Instruments OMAP 850 CPU, 64MB of RAM, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, a MicroSD card slot and a 1,250mAh battery.
