HTC Opal does low-end luxury
The HTC Opal (probably a code name) is slated to be a low-end successor to the Touch. The form-factor remains similar, as opposed to the Touch Diamond which has a very different look. The device lacks 3G with only quad-band EDGE, but does include Wi-Fi. The processer is a paltary 200MHz , like the original run of the GSM Touch, but the Opal at least has 128MB RAM and 256MB ROM. Other features remain similar, such as a 2.8" touchscreen, microSD expansion and a 2 megapixel camera, though it has been upgraded to autofocus. No word on pricing or release date just yet.
