HTC Advantage is US Retail Stores

So the HTC Advantage (opens in new tab) is available in the US, in retail even. Well, it's in CompUSA, as least, if you consider that a retail store and not a dying albatross hanging about the neck of whichever mall it happens to be attached to.

I'll admit, the urge to buy one of these, even at its $899 US pricetag, is growing stronger by the day. The specs on it are just out of this world:

  • 624 MHz CPU with ATi™ Graphic Chip W2284
  • Microsoft® Windows Mobile® 6 Professional
  • ROM: 256 MB, RAM: 128 MB SDRAM
  • 133.5 mm (L) x 98 mm (W) x 16 mm (T)
  • 359g (with battery)
  • 5" Touchscreen, 640x480 resolution
  • HSDPA/UMTS/GSM/GPRS/EDGE: 850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz
  • Bluetooth® 2.0, 802.11 b/g
  • HTC proprietary 16-pin combined port (USB 1.1 host/VGA and TV Out)
  • 3 mega-pixel camera with autofocus and flash light
  • 8GB Drive built-in

It makes the Foleo look like, well, a PalmOS device. Yes, it's chunky and yes, the keyboard is too big to thumb and too small to touch-type easily. Otherwise, this thing is a powerhouse of a device by any reasonable standard.

  • It's really an awesome device, but I don't its 900 bucks awesome....I think they need to find a way to knock off at least $150 or more of the price tag.
