In London today, HTC has announced the S740, which essentially takes the Touch Pro / Touch Diamond look and feel and applies it to Windows Mobile Standard. It's a welcome upgrade to the relatively disappointing HTC Vox/S710. We're looking at spec upgrades all around here, but nothing to actually make a Standard-edition smartphone on par with the current touchscreen hotness from HTC. Here's the rundown:
- Windows Mobile 6.1
- Size: 116.3 x 43.4 x 16.3 mm
- Weight: 140g with battery
- Networks: WCDMA/HSDPA: 900/2100 MHz for EU and Asia (Read: No 3G in the US)
- GSM/GPRS/EDGE: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz
- Display: 2.4-inch QVGA screen
- Camera: 3.2 megapixel with fixed focus
- Internal memory: 256 MB flash; 256 MB RAM
- Memory card: microSD™
- WLAN: 802.11b/g
- Bluetooth®: 2.0 with EDR
- GPS: GPS/AGPS
- Interface: HTC ExtUSB™ (mini-USB and audio jack in one; USB 2.0 High-Speed)
- Battery: 1000 mAh
- FM Radio
We're a little bummed to see the 240x320 screen and the lack of US bands for the 3G, but glad to see that HTC hasn't forgotten about Standard Edition.
