Rendered image of the HTC Ignite breaks cover & hints to being a WP7 device?
The latest one involved in the mix comes from XDA.cn which provided a leaked rendering of what seems to be an none other than the HTC Ignite. Without question, the dead center start button clearly indicates its flavor for Microsoft’s new mobile platform, but some discrepancies regarding its specs would make anyone allude to it as being a fake. Specifically, it’s noted as being packed with an 800MHz processor and resistive touchscreen – which naturally doesn’t fit with Microsoft’s Chassis 1 requirements.
But before it’s completely thrown out the door as being a fake, it’s worth noting that UK retailer, King of Gadgets, has the “HTC Ignite” listed as a model on their site. Aside from that, the other rumored specs include a 3.7” WVGA display, 5-megapixel camera, and 512MB of RAM. And as it stands now, the HTC Ignite is believed to be on track for a “mid-2011” release.

A mid range phone is what WP7 needs. No one wants to pay top dollar on a OS you are not sure is for you. HTC is respected, and several good phones will encourage buyers to give it a try.

Hey the OS is desirable, best put it out on some devices and get things rolling until the big guns are ready... Too bad few enthusiasts will not be biting for these midrange models, I want a bad boy. I'm willing to wait.
