Some better, and real, pics of the HTC Athena have just emerged, and it's some kind of weird bridge device that nobody thought would exist.

It's not a proper Windows Mobile PPC device like the 8525, and it's not a proper UMPC. So what's the point?

The Athena is around the same size as a UMPC, but only has the power of a smaller device. The only thing going for this are the bigger screen (same QVGA resolution though) and removable keyboard. We'll have to take a wait-and-see approach to this one.

I had a device very similar to Athena back in 1995. It was a Windows 3.11 pen edition device that looked almost identical to this, although the screen was monochrome.
