Verizon May Be Adding Further to Its Windows Mobile Offerings

by Reads (6,829)

The FCC has apparently confirmed Verizon’s plans to offer the HTC Iris, a Windows Mobile Professional smartphone with a small keyboard, Wi-Fi, and 3G.

This government agency has approved the Iris for release in the U.S., and posted documents describing this CDMA device on its web site. Among these is a user manual that makes it clear that Verizon is the telecom that will be offering it in this country.

The Iris is already available in Canada as the HTC S640, but there’s no word on what it will be called in the U.S.

The FCC also gives no clues on when this model will debut.

When it does, though, it willl be the sixth Windows Mobile device in Verizon’s current product line-up.

An Overview of the HTC Iris/S640

The Iris uses a tablet shape, with a small keyboard below its 2.8-inch, QVGA display. It uses the same general design as another Verizon model, the Motorola Q9m, but offers features not in that smartphone, like Windows Mobile Professional and Wi-Fi.

It is based on a 400 MHz processor and has 128 MB RAM and 256 MB of ROM.

This HTC device is 4.0 inches tall, 2.3 inches wide, and 0.55 inches thick (101mm x 59.6mm x 13.9mm). It weighs 4.0 ounces (112g).

In addition, the Iris has a microSD memory card slot, Bluetooth 2.0, and a 2.0-megapixel camera.
