HTC Leo revealed, super-thin cellphone with a huge screen

Put a huge 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen and quick-like-a-bunny Snapdragon 1 GHz processor on a cellphone, and you have a handset we would certainly call "high end." The 11mm-thin HTC Leo, available in the next month or two, brings the serious features, including an autofocusing 5-megapixel camera with a built-in 2-LED flash, GPS, Bluetooth 2.1 and a 3.5mm headset jack.

You're familiar with HTC, aren't you? It's the same Taiwan company that makes the HTC Dream, Also known to most as the Android-packing T-Mobile G1.

The downside? It's going to be running the so-so Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system, but maybe future refinements to that OS will make it worthwhile to carry such impressive and slim hardware. We especially like Leo's WVGA resolution, great for watching movies, and also able to browse the Internet with aplomb, fitting an 800-pixel-wide window in full page width.
