However, as MobileSyrup notes, WIND has already teased the upcoming availability of a Windows Phone 8 handset on its network, and Koodo has started employee training on Microsoft’s latest mobile OS flavor, which suggests that it might not be too long before the smartphone is put up for sale.
HTC Canada's website is currently teasing the smartphone as set to land at these carriers all dressed up in Blue. However, specific details on the launch have yet to be officially unveiled.
For those out of the loop, we should note that the smartphone was made official with a 4-inch screen capable of delivering a WVGA resolution, as well as with a dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor.
The handset also sports 512 MB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory, and a microSD memory card slot for additional storage space.
On the back, it packs a 5-megapixel photo snapper, with LED flash and support for HD video recording. It also comes with built-in Beats Audio technology, which should provide users with a great audio experience.
“Exclusive Beats Audio built-in serves up immersive, studio-quality sound for all your entertainment. Plus, a physical camera button lets you instantly point, shoot and share while a free SkyDrive account means that wherever you go, so does your content,” HTC notes.
“The smartphone to match your life at work and play. Our unique design immediately sets you apart in a sea of smartphones with playful, brightly colored devices that look as if they’ve been dipped in a bucket of paint.”
