Details of what it rumored to be the HTC Opal have recently surfaced. The Opal, very likely an internal code name, appears to be an affordable follow-up to the popular HTC Touch smartphone. Powered by Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional and featuring HTC's TouchFLO user interface, the HTC Opal's leaked specifications sheet shows a large 2.8" QVGA resolution touchscreen display.
The HTC Opal appears to offer quad-band GSM (850/900/1800/1900MHz) support, in addition to built-in WiFi for fast data speeds. There appears to be no 3G on this budget smartphone. The 2 megapixel camera should be able to capture decent photos, and its microSD card slot should offer plenty of storage.
