HTC Artimes

HTC Have about a billion phones planned for this year, and this is one of the more original designs - the HTC Artimes (I'm not sure if that's supposed to be "Artemis" - likely as there is another device known as the Hermes). The dope on this one is that it's packing GPS, and a little trackball instead of a joystick.
Admittedly, we're not talking a quantum leap in mobile technology here, but it's the first phone I've ever heard of with an analogue control system, and it should work well with the GPS navigation.

The other thing that I'm wondering, is that if it uses a trackball for the GPS navigation, is it possible we'll see a little mouse pointer in Windows Mobile 5? Nah, I doubt it.

The other bits: Edge is as fast as it gets, with Bluetooth included and a 1.3 Megapixel camera. Expandable memory is via MiniSD, which is a bad bad thing. But not as bad as Transflash.
