New HTC Ignite and Prime Windows Phone 7 handsets coming soon?

HTC seems to be readying two new Windows Phone 7 devices, one with a sliding QWERTY keyboard, and another one without.

The keyboardless device is currently called HTC Ignite. It looks a lot like the HTC Mozart, and it should be released in mid-2011.

XDA.cn has some contradictory details regarding the features of the Ignite, which are said to include a resistive 3.7 inch WVGA touchscreen, 800MHz processor, 512MB of RAM, and a 5MP camera. Resistive display on a WP7 handset? That’s not really possible, is it? Of course, until we hear something official about the Ignite, we won’t know anything for sure.

The QWERTY device, called HTC Prime, also has a 3.7 inch WVGA display, plus 512MB of RAM, and a 5MP camera with LED flash.

There’s no word on when or where the Prime will be released. Let’s hope we’ll hear more about the two smartphones soon.

    HTC makes *very* good keyboards for its phones. Touch Pro 2 was fantastic, and the Prime looks good too.
