Well, just out of the blue the never before seen HTC Touch HD device appeared online in spy photos, which reveal quite a lot. Destined to be the ultimate iPhone rival, the new Windows Mobile powerhouse packs some serious specs.

Based on Windows Mobile 6.1, the new HTC Touch HD measures 115 x 62.8 x 12mm (which is just about the iPhone 3G with 115.5 x 62.1 x 12.3mm). Yes, slim it is and it has a large display (that's now confirmed as a 4-incher) with the overwhelming resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. It also seems to be running TouchFLO 3D.

The HTC Touch HD (we don't know whether that would be its retail name) is powered by a 528Mhz CPU courtesy of the Qualcomm 7201A platform. There are 512MB flash memory and 288MB of RAM.
Of course, goodies like GPS, Wi-Fi and HSPDA go without saying, but the HTC Touch HD also has a 5 megapixel camera (without a flash though). Unfortunately, video recording is not that high-end as it maxes out at QVGA@30fps.
The Touch HD is due this Christmas, so we could be in for some official announcement really soon.
