HTC SuperStar: HTC's answer to Samsung Omnia HD

After seeing a leaked spreadsheet of HTC's 2009 lineup from, I now know what would HTC's answer be to the Samsung Omnia HD: the HTC SuperStar. Previously, since HTC did not announce anything about the SuperStar in the MWC 2009, I thought they would just be content with the HTC Touch Diamond2 and the HTC TouchPro2 but since both these devices were greatly overshadowed by the Samsung Omnia HD, HTC went back to the ol' drawing board and came up with the HTC SuperStar.

Not much can be said about the HTC SuperStar except for the leaked spreadsheet which shows that it would be running windows mobile 6.5, will have 256MB of RAM and 512MB of ROM, 3.7 inch WVGA screen, and will be running nVidia AP16 chipset with 600MHz of speed.

So why would I think that the HTC SuperStar is HTC's answer to the Samsung Omnia HD? Because of the nVidia chipset, which according to, refers to the nVidia APX Tegra. Some of the features of the nVidia APX Tegra includes: capture and playback of 720p HD movies and according to nVidia, their chipset allows for the industry's longest HD video and MP3 playback, plus their chipset also allows for a 12 megapixel camera with built-in image stabilization.

Now that's looks mighty good on paper, however, HTC has been known not to make full use of any of their chipsets so we'll just see how the HTC SuperStar will compare in actual tests.

    I'm with you on this. The HTC SuperStar would be a good phone if HTC is able to make use of the full potential of the NVidia Tegra. Otherwise, it would just be another expensive, unuseable phone.
