Rogers Wireless, the leading wireless carrier in Canada and HTC (High Tech Computer Corp.), the world's leading provider of Microsoft Windows Mobile-based smart devices, today announced the availability of the HTC TyTN (aka HTC Hermes), HTC's Windows Mobile 5 Pocket PC Phone Edition power-horse that features quadband GSM/GPRS/Edge, triband UMTS/HSDPA and a slide-out QWERTY keypad. Designed by HTC, the TyTN is the complete "office-in-your-pocket" solution combining functionality and connectivity with a stylish slide-out QWERTY keypad and 2.8" touch screen LCD display. As a powerful Windows Mobile 5.0 device, the TyTN provides a wealth of voice and data capabilities that enable people to easily stay connected, organized and entertained.

Leveraging Tri-Band HSDPA and Quad Band Edge connectivity, this device is ideal for: on-the-go business executives who need an all-in-one reliable device to synchronize their calendars; the digital entertainment consumer who wants to download music and pictures to an microSD card and play for friends; or busy parents who need to stay connected in their professional and personal lives.

"As the only wireless carrier with the advanced broadband HSDPA-based network in Canada, Rogers Wireless is committed to bringing the most powerful HSDPA-enabled devices to market," said John Boynton, senior vice president and chief marketing officer at Rogers Wireless. "Rogers is committed to investing in innovative new services such as TyTN. This new device brings together the combination of power, design and connectivity into one amazing device so our customers can save time and have access to the latest in mobile innovation while on the go."

"The HTC TyTN builds upon what consumers already love about HTC, representing a truly powerful mobile office solution with proven success in the United States, Europe and Asia," said Todd Achilles, vice president of HTC America. "Rogers Wireless customers will appreciate the advanced connectivity that works all over the world."

The HTC TyTN is available for CAD$ 399.99 (around 275 Euro) on a three year term exclusively at Rogers retailers or online.
Unfortunately neither Rogers Wireless nor HTC America have said anything about a possible Windows Mobile 6 upgrade. However, if the device is really a HTC TyTN (and not a heavily tweaked HTC Hermes), the Windows Mobile 6 upgrade should be available from HTC - as previously announced.
