Some details about HTC's Blackberry beater, the Excalibur, has appeared on the web.
According to details sent to website Smartphone Thoughts, Excalibur's a quad-band device with Wi-Fi. No great surprise there - it's just what you'd expect from a modern HTC handset. What is interesting is the strip you can just see to the right of the screen. Apparently, it's touch-sensitive and works in place of the jog-wheel sported by Blackberries and Sony Ericsson's upcoming M600 smart phone.
