We know The 4.7-inch Gingerbread-poweredHTC Runnymede
looks like a close copy of the Windows Phone Mango powered HTC Titan
with its gigantic screen, but that only makes the Runnymede more exciting. Now, the first press shots of the handset leaked and we can pin-point all the differences starting with the white paint job up front, the design and ending with the software.
The snow white HTC Runnymede is powered by a single-core 1.5GHz processor
working along with 768MB of RAM. The resolution of the screen is 480 x 800 pixels (WVGA), which might seem a bit low stretched on such a huge display for the most pretentious of pixel
density enthusiasts, that is. The device is also expected to feature a top-notch camera, but we had no details about any technical details.
The Runnymede will be among the first devices arriving with Beats Audio
, HTC’s latest acquisition, which is expected to bring top-notch audio to the phone. All of that, though, comes for a price - nearly $840 (530 pounds) for the 16GB model and some $885 (560 pounds) for the 32 gig variation. Those are all off-contract prices in the UK, so we expect that if the phone arrives stateside, it will get subsidized and the final price might change. HTC’s September 20th event, might bring the rest of the details and it’s coming soon, so stay tuned.
