Following HTC's earlier HTC Advantage X7510 announcement from last February, I've recently received HTC's latest reincarnation of the HTC Advantage which now features Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, an increased 16 GB solid state disk storage and an improved keyboard with haptic feedback. The updated HTC Advantage includes HTC's customized HTC Today screen, as seen first with the HTC Touch, that provides one-touch access to E-Mails, SMS text messages, missed calls, calendar appointments and contacts, current weather conditions and forecasts as well it now features HTC's TouchFLO software for enhanced finger touch scrolling and browsing of Web pages.

Like its forerunner, the X7510 features a Marvell CPU at 624 MHz which takes - according to HTC - benefit from Qualcomm's ATI graphic chip, quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE, triband UMTS/HSDPA up to 1.8 Mbps as well as Bluetooth 2.0, WiFi b/g and GPS. In addition to the massive 16 GB of memory, the X7510 includes 128 MB RAM and 256 MB ROM. The 5" touchscreen supports VGA and the autofocus main camera on the back supports 3 megapixel.

With its innovative built-in video output capability, the HTC Advantage empowers its users with freedom to make presentations anywhere. Users can run presentations directly via the projector and TV output and the magnetic QWERTY keyboard is ideal not just for editing Microsoft Office documents, but also for enjoying leisure time. Users can watch videos, browse the web with Opera Mobile 9.5 and navigate anywhere with inbuilt GPS and preinstalled Google Maps Mobile.

Unfortunately, even if available in English and supporting all two North American GSM and two UMTS frequencies, the X7510 will not be released in the U.S. due to Broadcom's dispute with Qualcomm. The X7510 uses one of the Qualcomm radio chips which is forbidden to be sold in North America now.

I thought the 7510 would automatically orientate the screen when moved from portrait to landscape.  Could you test this feature and comment?

Does the keyboard now have  light  in the backround or not ?

@George Fisher: Thanks and yes, after I've unboxed the device, I've also seen this feature is mentioned in the specs. However, in the pre-release Beta ROM my X7510 uses, this features seems to be not yet enabled. At least it's not working, doesn't matter what I'm doing.

@Andy K: No, sorry... No illuminated keyboard.

Can you test if this device can connect with a thinkoutside bt keyboard ? As they aren't supported anymore, I was wondering if they still work in WM 6.1 ...

I hope HTC releases this device soon in Europe !

Good to see that test units have been sent out.  This means that we are getting closer to production release.  I have been waiting for months.  Originally it was advertised to be USB 2.0, now people are saying that it is 1.1.  Is this correct?  I cannot imagine having a 16Gb drive and USB 1.1.

When you are getting ready for your review please try out the unit's internet connection while tethered to a laptop.  Thanks!

@REem: Will test this combination ASAP. Basically Windows Mobile 6.1 support is most interesting, right?

@DVargas: No, it's USB 2.0 Slave and 1.1 Host. I've just tried to copy some files and a 30 MB file I've copied in less then 20 seconds. So not a big deal at all to fill up the 16 GB.
