HTC P4350 / Herald

HTC P4350 / Herald

As I'm incredibly fond of pointing out, HTC is incredibly fond of letting their brand get diluted with multiple device names. Ah well, They're also incredibly fond of the horizontal slider form factor: witness yet another version of that, the HTC Herald. It'll be available in a few markets (Europe, Middle, East, and Africa) next month.

At 17mm thick, the Herald feature sliding full QWERTY keys. Sporting 128MB ROM and 64MB RAM, Windows Mobile 5.0, and a 200Mhz processor [...] The Herald supports GSM/GRPS, EDGE, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 2.0.

Crossbow Review

Mobile-review has a great, er, review of the upcoming version of Windows Mobile, currently codenamed Crossbow. As they say, don't expect a revolution just yet - that'll come with the next version, Photon.

In any case, there's some notables in there you'll want to check out. Here's the spoiler, though: you get more eye candy, better button support, built-in VOIP, and better integration with MS Exchange 12

*Nevertheless, the brand-new operating system could be called “Windows Mobile 5.0 Second Edition” for it lacks tons of all-new features and total system revamp as in the case of Windows Mobile 5.0. *

T-Mobile MDA III Announced

T-Mobile MDA III Announced

So earlier today I complained that the HTC Artemis/Orbit/MDAIII has different features for different countries. Now that we see the T-Mobile MDAIII has been announced, here's the rundown on the differences:

O2 Germany's HTC Artemis: GPS with onboard navigation. no W-LAN
O2 UK's HTC Orbit: GPS with onbaord navigation, W-LAN included
T-Mobile Germany's MDA-III: GPS, but you have to use your data plan to get directions, no W-LAN

All of the above have a TI OMAP processor, MicroSD, and a 2 megapixel camera. Looks like the Brits get the best version, though.

Unlike O2 Germany and HTC, T-Mobile isn't giving an onboard navigation solution with the MDA compact III but is offering navigation via T-Mobile's own NaviGate offboard solution only.
This means that for every route calculation, the device connects via GPRS or EDGE with T-Mobile's NaviGate server to get the route calculated on the server, which transfer the route back to the device after calculation.
NaviGate is able to calculate routes for 18 European countries, a single route calculation for German costs 99 Cent (including GPRS/EDGE traffic charges).

SPH-M8100 Pics

Here's some shiny that you won't be able to use for quite awhile, the Samsung SPH-M8100. It's a WiMax phone (hence the "quite awhile" bit) with some great features - including a tethered modem mode and a TV-Out (!) for showing off your multimedia on a big screen.

Samsung Electronics presented 'Mobile Wimax MITs SPH-M8100', its new Wimax-enabled handset during Samsung Mobile Wimax Summit 2006. Based on 'IMS (IP multimedia service), it allows users to have access to data at the speed of up to 20mbps while they are aboard of a car moving at 60km/h. It means you can actually various kinds of IP-based service including VoIP, voice call, push-to-all service, VOD, RSS and etc. in real time. It also supports T-DMB and TV-out.
Meanwhile, it can be used as a Wibro modem in connection with a pc or a laptop.

Voice Command 1.6

Voice Command 1.6

Here's a awkward question for fans of the full-featured PocketPC Edition of Windows Mobile 5: "How long until the differences between the two versions of the OS are negligible?" We know that we can expect a more full-featured version of Pocket Office on the Smartphone Edition soon (Hello editing!). Now, according to Tech[dot]Blog, we can expect Voice Command as well.

Another little tidbit in there that gets my heart pumping: Voice Command 1.6 will not only include support for the Smartphone Edition, it will also include support for bluetooth headsets, A2DP combo headsets, and will announce incoming emails.

HTC is Big Time: No Kidding!

HTC is Big Time: No Kidding!

A week or so ago the Seattle Times reported on HTC, they who pump out PocketPC phone after PocketPC phone. If you've ever been curious about this biggest name-that-isn't in smartphones, you'll want to go give the article a read. Highlights:

  • "The company began in 1997" (I always forget it's this young!)
  • They plan on making "ultramobile PCs" - but with phones in them. Think smaller OQO with a phone strapped on.
  • Intriguing to me is that they're not really interested in competing in the low-end smartphone market for very long: "We are the only ones taking the high-end phone and going even more upstream from that," he said. "For everyone else, it is the midtier handset market where they have the huge volume. But this is all we do."

Anyhow, it seems like HTC started duplicating the insane mid-90s internet stock boom right after that stock boom crashed. The difference: it sure doesn't look to me like HTC is crashing anytime soon.

HTC may be the most successful cellphone company you've never heard of.

Despite its low profile, the company is becoming an industry powerhouse with an increasingly growing impact on the market. It has developed some of the most notable cutting-edge phones and handheld devices this year.
