HTC S710 (HTC Vox) Unboxing, Q&A

Here it is - my favorite WM6 device of this year (so far): the HTC Vox/S710. Check out the unboxing video below. After the jump, answers to the questions submitted over the weekend.

In case you're wondering, here's the rundown on the specs:

  • Windows Mobile 6 Standard
  • TI OMAP 201 MHz Processor
  • 128 MB ROM (about 50 MB User accessible), 64MB RAM (again, about 50 MB of Program Memory)
  • 101.5 mm x 50 mm x 17.5 mm / 120g
  • GSM/GPRS/EDGE Quad-band
  • WiFi b/g, Bluetooth 2.0
  • 2 megapixel camera
  • Around 7 hours talk-time

On to the Q&A. If you have more questions, post 'em below!

I totally agree with you that its the most exciting WM6 device coming out. My one question is does it have wifi? I'm feeling it doesn't, which would suck a bit.- Neil

It does indeed have WiFi, which is a relief as the s710 only has EDGE for wireless data otherwise.

2. Carriers?3. Release Date?4. Comparison shots with other US devices, Q, blackjack, or similar.- Josh Smith | April 27, 2007 1:53 PM

Sadly, no idea on carriers or release dates. I strongly suspect that T-Mobile will get it, though, as it looks like an excellent SDA replacement. I'll put up a bevy of comparison shots in the next day or two.

No 3G = No sale. This is not a revolutionary interface like the iPhone so the lack of 3G hurts this device.- Jerry G

The lack of 3G is a pity (and a big one), but at least there's WiFi to lessen the blow.

how big is it?what are the dimensions?- skp

101.5 mm x 50 mm x 17.5 mm. Basically, it feels like your standard feature phone these days. As you can see in the video, it's smaller than the T-Mobile SDA, so it's pretty hand-friendly.

Does the vox have touchscreen? Can u edit windows office documents? How much did u pay for the device?- Jack Borg

No touchscreen, as it's Windows Mobile 6 Standard Edition (aka non-touchscreen edition). Since it's WM6, you can indeed edit office documents, though creating new ones requires a little hack. Let's not talk too much about how much we paid - it's an import right now so it won't feel good to mention it. ;)
