HTC today announced the launch of a new Windows Mobile Standard smartphone, the S740 which follows, with its QWERTY slide-out keyboard, the design-concept of the HTC Touch Pro but also features a traditional 12-keys phone-pad. At a size of 116.3 x 43.4 x 16.3 mm and weight of 140 gram, HTC's latest Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard smartphone features quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as dualband (900/2100 MHz) UMTS/HSDPA up to 7.2 Mbps, WiFi b/g, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR and GPS/AGPS. The QVGA non-touchscreen measures 2.4" and the main fixfocus camera supports 3.2 megapixel:

HTC will show the S740 the first time publically during the IFA trade show this week and will launch it in September across Europe. A price wasn't given today.

UPDATE: Today, HTC unveiled the price for the HTC S740. In Germany and Austria, it will retail (without a subscription) for 449 Euro, in Switzerland it will be available for 699 SFr. This might be a good indication for other countries too. HTC hasn't unveiled yet if or with which carriers the S740 might be released (or not).

Cheers ~ Arne

Man, the US gets left out again. If Palm can release an unlocked Treo, why can't HTC start including tri-band UMTS?

No touch screen?  Wtf!  The release one without a keyboard and another without a touch screen?

I mean, thanks for keeping my 6800 from becoming out of date, but give the people what they want.

No touchscreen because it's running Windows Mobile Standard, not Professional. Nevertheless, if you want the similar device with touchscreen, you can get the HTC Touch Pro anyway.
