Photos of the soon-to-be released HTC Spark, a mainstream Windows Phone 7 handset, have appeared online and shows a device that appears to be the twin brother to the Android-based HTC Desire.

The images (opens in new tab) published by the XDA-Developers forum by a hardware tester show that the HTC Hub is available as expected and users on the site also provided with more details with regards to the specifications of the handset.

Expect it to come with a 1Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC (we'd expect a MSM9250), a 3.8-inch WVGA touchscreen display, 512MB RAM, 8.5GB onboard storage, a 5-megapixel camera with flash, 1300mAh battery, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth but no microSD memory card reader.

The HTC Spark is likely to be available from launch - from the 11th of October - on a number of networks (yet to be announced) for around £30 per month with data, voice and text packages.
