Fans of the T-Mobile Dash/HTC Excalibur's form factor will be happy to know that HTC's working on a successor to the thin phone, currently called the Cavalier. Like the Dash, the phone will have a 320x240 screen, touch-pad scrolling, 802.11b/g WiFi and GSM/GPRS/EDGE.
So how does this phone improve on the Dash?
How about 3G UMTS and HSDPA capability, a 400MHz Samsung processor (up from 200MHz OMAP), a 2-megapixel camera, and a 1,050mAh battery. HTC is planning on launching this sometime in January/February '07, which means Cingular and T-Mobile have plenty of time to hurry up and deploy their 3G networks in your area.
