HTC's Model Naming Convention

I haven't been able to confirm this independently, but I think I have figured out HTC's new model names. If you have an HTC device with a model number that starts with an "S," it runs on the Smartphone Edition of Windows Mobile. If you have an HTC device with a model number that starts with an "P," it runs on the Pocket PC Phone Edition of Windows Mobile.

"Well, that's all fine and dandy"you say, "But what happens now that Microsoft has changed all the names with Windows Mobile 6.0?" Conveniently enough, this still works out: The Smartphone Edition becomes Windows Mobile Standard and the Pocket PC Phone Edition Windows Mobile Professional.

Again, this is just a theory, but it makes sense, doesn't it? HTC (with U.S. headquarters in Bellevue, WA) has pretty close ties with Microsoft (with HQ in Redmond, WA).
