MobileMentalism managed to get a hold of some pictures and specs (from a Chinese site called PCOnline) for the HTC HD3, a Windows Phone 7 superphone that looks like it could be poised to give the current crop of Android world beaters a run for their money. Those who have been uphappy with the ever increasing size of the new batch of Androids won’t be happy with this one either, a 4.5 inch AMOLED screen…but good lord the specs for the HD3 look incredible.
As could have been expected, the writer at MobileMentalism spent a paragraph saying how much better this phone would be running Android (as nearly every blog did about the HD2) but in the end they have to admit, this phone gives us a reason to look forward to Windows Phone 7 again.
Check out a pic and translated specs after the jump. The screen shots look very fishy to me, so I am taking this with a large grain of salt until I hear something more, but WOW.
UPDATE: Word is that this is an old WP7 fake that is being retreaded by PCOnline. However, considering the current crop of Android phones, I wouldn’t be overly surprised if we see something like this running Windows Phone in 2011, especially if the OS gains some traction against Android and iOS.
