HTC’s Windows Phone 8 roadmap revealed

The Verge has leaked HTC’s Windows Phone 8 roadmap.

Claiming knowledgeable sources, they revealed 3 handsets:

The  “Rio,” has a 4-inch WVGA display, 14.4Mbps HSPA, and a 5-megapixel camera with 720p video capture. There’s only 512MB on board, and the processor is a a Qualcomm MSM8227  Snapdragon S4 Plus.

The next device is the  “Accord,” with a 4.3-inch 720p Super LCD 2, an 8-megapixel sensor with 1080p capture, 42Mbps HSPA+, NFC support, and 1GB of RAM atop a slightly beefier dual-core processor (tentatively an MSM8260A).

The last is the “Zenith” with  a 4.7-inch 720p Super LCD 2 with the same 8-megapixel sensor as the Accord, 42Mbps HSPA+, and an unnamed quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon.

The Rio and Accord is set to arrive in October and the Zenith before the end of the year.

Quad-core for Windows Phone? Maybe the critics will finally be silenced.
