It has an 800MHz Qualcomm MSM7230 processor and HSPA+ and 802.11n radios providing the data.

HTC not only announced their new hardware today, but they also announced new services for their devices, which will go live soon. It will provide services like backup, security, and control of the HTC handsets. Another new service that would be available is that if you lose your phone somewhere or it is stolen then its owner can lock and wipe the phone. The service would automatically perform your all important backups, so you would not have to worry about your important data getting lost. This service will also add advanced multimedia support which will help users to capture, share and upload their content.
