Sprint gets PPC-6800 and red UpStage on 18th
It seems that June 18 is the date for two new Sprint PCS phones: the HTC Mogul will be numbered as the PPC-6800 and will replace the 6700 (HTC Apache). Mogul doubles the RAM memory (from 128 to 256 MB), increases the battery time by 20%, the camera resolution from 1.3 to 2 megapixels and slims down the body with 1/3 of an inch, also removes the antenna. It will run on Windows Mobile 6 Professional (ex Pocket PC) straight out of the box and an update in Fall 2007 will upgrade the EV-DO to Rev.A.

The price will be $550 or $400 with a two-year contract.

The Red color version of the UpStage will also come on June 18. It keeps exactly the same functionality and price of $99, so the only new thing is the color of the housing – red instead of black.

In addition, the Retail release will provide the Sprint Music store, which the Business release will not have - among other small items...
