It seems like there is never a shortage of smartphones on the market, especially with more manufactures opting to jump into the Windows Phone market. Although the previous lineup of Windows Phones have proved to be a bit lackluster, there are two new superphones about to hit the shelves (we'll find out when September 1) that have us at IdentityMine drooling - trust me, you will too.
The HTC Omega and the HTC Eternity are two phones with a promising future; both phones have a large screen (purported 3.7-in and 4.5-in respectively) and a 1.5 GHz Snapdragon processor that will surely have your phone running applications faster than ever. Lets take a look at the two shall we?
The HTC Omega sports a 1.3MP front facing camera (Mango update will support that feature!) which will have Skype freaks dreaming about the 3.7-in Super LCD screen. Video buffs will love the 720p recording capabilities. Not only does this phone support awesome features, the matte white and aluminum finish really complete the look of a modern superphone. Do you think HTC might have drawn some design inspiration from Apple... or maybe just the dishwasher in their break room?
The HTC Eternity is the more compelling superphone of the two simply because of the massive, tablet-like 4.5-in S-LCD screen. As stated above, the 1.5 GHz processor will allow blazing speeds while browsing online and playing the 90 new levels added to Angry Birds. You may be wondering why I have been using the term superphone... well that mostly because this phone is purported to house an 8 megapixel camera, a 720p movie mode, front-facing 1.3 megapixel camera, 16GB of storage, DLNA support, Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS and a 1,650mAh battery. Oh and did we mention it's supposed to have the Mango update pre-installed?
Both superphones offer compelling features - especially the front mounted camera and Mango update pre-installed. All features aside, I prefer the look of the Eternity because it possesses the sleek, understated, no-frills business look I like my phones to have.
How many of you are chomping at the bit for HTC to officially unveil these two superphones on September 1? I'm getting hungry for Mango's just thinking about these phones.
