Four new from HTC
Four new devices have been added to HTC's portfolio of smartphones, extending its own-brand range to six.
The HTC S620 is a 12.8mm QWERTY handset to rival RIM's Blackberry and Nokia's E61. It boasts full business features including push e-mail and Wi-Fi connectivity.
The P3300 is a PDA-style device with onboard GPS. It runs TomTom's Navigator 6 software and ships pre-loaded with either regional maps or a complete set for Western Europe.
HTC's P3600 is a 3G, touchscreen handset boasting HSDPA connectivity and a 2-megapixel camera.
Finally, the S310 is a sleek bar-style handset aimed at the mass market.
All four handsets run Windows Mobile 5.0, which includes software such as Outlook Mobile, Excel, Powerpoint and a PDF viewer.
HTC is keen to push the devices under its own brand, but its insistence to work closely with operators means consumers are likely to buy the devices direct from their network instead. T-Mobile will be stocking the P3300 as the MDA Compact III, while other operators are expected to unveil their own variants shortly.
The HTC P3600 and S310 will be available from September this year, while the P3300 and S620 are scheduled for an October launch.
