HTC Ignite WP7 Handset May Accompany Prime in Mid-2011; Specs Not Too Impressive Though

March 16, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

While on our quest to find more details about the HTC Prime, on which we wrote about a while ago, we stumbled upon yet another HTC cutie. And, honestly, it looked like something capable of igniting our imagination. The phone, named Ignite, could be yet another HTC WP7 device that would come around the same time as the HTC Prime.

So that would mean that the phone maker will have a couple of Windows Phone 7 handsets debuting around the same time. XDA has listed this phone as well, along with an alluring picture (posted alongside).

However, don’t get too excited yet. The spec sheet gives us reasons to not get too enthusiastic about the device. The 3.7-inch WVGA display, 5-megapixel camera, and 512MB of RAM are all fine, but the mention of an 800MHz processor and resistive touchscreen don’t seem to go well with the current scenario. That’s what we feel, but then, tell us if you think otherwise.

In comparison the HTC Prime seems like a better device in terms of specs as well as the QWERTY slider presence. We don’t know how many among you would rater the Ignite better than the Prime, though.

We leave it to you, as it gets ready to come to our midst around mid-2011. Write to us, or scribble your thoughts on the Ignite in the comments space provided below.
