HTC rumours hot up

New handsets afoot?

Remote control for virtualized desktops

HTC doesn't seem to be running short of ideas for smart phone concepts. It's rumoured the manufacturer has developed a new touchscreen handset and that it could also be working on a separate slider smartphone.

Internet reports have it that the HTC P6550 Sedna will have a 3.5in QVGA touchscreen and come equipped with a 3-megapixel camera, in addition to HSDPA connectivity. Security conscious smart phone addicts will also be pleased, because the handset is also rumoured to have a built-in nfingerprint reader.

The Sedna could be based on a Qualcomm chipset with 128MB memory and ship with a 1GB storage capacity, in an addition to a memory card slot. It could also hold its weight on the connectivity front, with rumours suggesting that Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, and a miniUSB port will all be present.

Pictures have also begun circulating online of a separate slider handset, possibly called the HTC P5500 Nike, although a tie-up with the sportswear company is pure speculation.

The Nike handset is thought to have a 2-megapixel camera, GPS, and a 2.6in screen, which some reports have said could also be a touchscreen. The handset's dimensions, possibly just based on the average size of existing HTC handsets, are said to be around 10.6 x 5.3 x 1.5cm.

No release date is known for the HTC Sedna, but reports say if the Nike phone does exist then it's coming out next month. Keep your eyes peeled.
