HTC Obsession: 720p Video Recording–the Hardware Race is On!
The LG Apollo may have a WXGA display that’s capable of 720p on its own multitouch display, but HTC’s latest Windows Mobile 7 release–rumored for October 2010–may be capable of 720p video capture at 25 fps with its 5-megapixel camera. Other than the multitouch capacitive touchscreen AMOLED display on the HTC Obsession, there’s no mention what the screen resolution is on the 3.7-inch panel (the competing Windows Mobile 7 LG Apollo has a 3.8-inch screen with 1280 X 720 resolution).
