It is rumored it will have a clamshell design, smartphone with built-in camera by the end of the year as well.<br /><br />HTCís design experience with Microsoft smartphones has been with the Texas Instruments (TI) OMAP platform. The OMAP platform was more mature and faster to bring to market than Intelís competing design. However, it does not have nearly as much processing power as the new smartphones using Intelís XScale solutions, such as those currently being developed by Mitac International, Asustek Computer and Wistron.<br /><br />In the OMAP 510 design, used in the SPV smartphone, the processor must contend with the modem for external memory. For new applications such as streaming video, there may not be enough horsepower for a reliable stream. The OMAP platform also comes bundled with the TI Comdat GPRS radio stack, which is rumored to be the cause of some of the network latency problems with earlier SPVs."

Interesting I wonder if this is the rumored new converged Ipaq?
