HTC Eternity and Omega could be real after all; accessories appear online
Until now, evidence to support the existence of the rumored HTC Eternity and the HTC Omega was pretty scarce. However, a recent discovery over at Alibaba slightly raises the chances of these two smartphones being real after all.

For those of you who are not familiar with it, Alibaba is an online platform used by businesses worldwide to trade their products with other businesses. Apparently, protective gels for the HTC Eternity and HTC Omega have been listed in Alibaba's database along with more than a few photos of the accessories. The smartphones themselves do not make an appearance even in a dummy form, but a quick comparison shows that the Eternity's protective case looks like it would fit perfectly on the device depicted in this leaked image from not long ago.

Both the HTC Eternity and HTC Omega are said to be running Windows Phone 7 Mango and to be powered by a third-gen Qualcomm chipset clocked at 1.5 GHz. What will make the Eternity stand out, however, is its massive 4.7-inch AMOLED display, which the device is rumored to be equipped with. The HTC Omega, on the other hand, will allegedly feature a relatively modest 3.8-inch SLCD display. Besides that, both smartphones are expected to pack an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera. Nevertheless, all these technical specs are unconfirmed so you might want to take them with a grain of salt at this time.

HTC makes great phones and I am looking forward to the their latest releases. However, the most important thing for HTC to be working on right now is improving the battery life of their cell phones,

Love that we are seeing more and more W7 Mango release rumors. I am pumped to no end to get on the Windows bandwagon. My contract is up in November, but I have zero problem with grabbing the right device when it comes out, even if it means paying the E.T.F. to get that right device. HTC was my manufacturer of choice when I was considering Android, so I am pleased they are such W7 supporter.
