While HTC isn't showing it's recently updated and announced HTC Advantage, T-Mobile does and shows off the its updated version of the T-Mobile Ameo, the carrier announced earlier already. The two highlights of the new T-Mobile Ameo/HTC Advantage are the increased storage space which offers 16 GB now and even more important - it's not a HDD (hard disk drive) anymore but a SSD (Solid State Disk). This has several benefits: less power consumption with faster access rates and less worries if the device drops. The second improvement is the newly designed keyboard which isn't featuring physical keys anymore but which is a flat but touch sensitive plate.

As John Wang, HTC Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) explained, the reason for the change was that HTC noticed that the use of the previous keyboard tiered the fingers. With the new keyboard, which doesn't needs any physical pressure anymore, this should be solved. However, Mr. Wang said that HTC faced another problem with the new keyboard design; since it's a touch sensitive keyboard, a users doesn't get a tactile feedback. Therefore, HTC built in a kind of vibration which provides a tactile feedback per pressed key and I have to say, it works pretty good.

The new HTC Athena should be available soon as Ameo 16 GB from T-Mobile and as Advantage from HTC. Other basic specification didn't changed, except that the T-Mobile Ameo 16 GB indeed features Windows Mobile 6.1 as predicted.
