Information about the latest Dopod C750 leaked on two Chinese websites with a handful of good pictures. Dopod continues to rely on HTC as the OEM of its handsets, so eyes are on the C750 as the prime suspect for being the first working example of the rumored HTC Juno platform. Comparison is inevitable, as both the Juno and the C750 are Windows Mobile smartphones with a QWERTY keyboard in the slider form factor.

The Dopod C750 will offer quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support and a stunning 2.6" TFT display with a VGA resolution (480 x 640 pixels), but it's by no means a high-end feature-packed mobile. It's equipped with a mainstream 2 megapixel camera (auto focus is yet unconfirmed) with no flash and there is no Wi-Fi or GPS. There is stereo Bluetooth however, along with a miniUSB port and a microSD memory card slot.
The Dopod C750 runs on Windows Mobile 6.0 Standard and, besides the regular features, will also offer business card scanning, stock trading software, and data encryption. Unfortunately, the processor powering the device is still OMAP850 201MHz, raising doubts about the smooth running of the OS with that power-hungry VGA screen.
The Dopod C750 should be available in November.
