Omega and Eternity: HTC's Mango campaigners detailed

Omega and Eternity: HTC's Mango campaigners detailedHTC may have Android to thank for propelling it into the major mobile league, but it's good to see the Taiwanese giant isn't forgetting its Windows roots.

It has been one of the main supporters of Microsoft's OS from the erratic years of Windows Mobile to the sparkling new WP7 and now there appears to be two new handsets to keep fans salivating.

The Omega and Eternity have been mentioned before in recent times but things look to be firming up now, with pictures of cases apparently designed for both handsets being posted on PocketNow.

Both handsets are expected to rock Windows Phone 7.5 Mango which is scheduled for release in the autumn and come with some fairly respectable specs.

We hear the Omega will pack a 3.8inch SLCD screen with a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor under the hood. An 8MP camera and 720HD video capability are also said to be in there.

As for the Eternity, we gather that name is in light of its massive 4.7in WVGA SLCD screen though other specs appear to be identical to the Omega.

One thing to note is the Eternity's battery - some sources are putting it at 1650mAh. Whilst no slouch on some phones, we wonder how long that'll be able to power a 4.7in screen. Hopefully, we'll get our hands on both handsets' bells and whistles soon to find out for you.

4.7", awesome.
WVGA, not awesome.
