New HTC Smartphone Headed to Sprint

picture-68.jpgSprint is getting serious on the smartphone action with the addition of the PPC-6800. A replacement for the aging 6700, the HTC Titan-based device is a WinMo 5, QWERTY sliding powerhouse. Like BoyGenius, we would have like to have seen it shipped with WinMo 6, but an upgrade should be available soon.

The phone’s packed to the gills with fun, including a 320×240 touchscreen, WiFi, Bluetooth, microSD, and a 2-Megapixel camera with the coveted autofocus.

Sadly, word is it’s not toting 3G connectivity. But with WiFI and standard data, you might not need it.
