During his keynote today, Steve Ballmer introduced 2 new Windows Mobile Smartphones. The HTC Star Trek will be sold by i-mate as the Smart Flip. The Smart Flip takes many of its styling cues - including its thin profile and flat metal keypad from the RAZR. It has 64 MB ROM / 64 MB RAM, a MicroSD slot for additional storage and a 1.3 MP camera. The other new smartphone is larger than the average Window Mobile phone because it includes a receiver for digital TV. The HTC Monet is a redesigned Faraday (Cingular 2125) with extra hardware and software to add compatibility with BT's mobile TV service based on DAB-IP, an extension of Europe's DAB digital radio service. It will launch on Virgin Mobile in the UK this spring.
