Following T-Mobile earlier announcement to introduce an upgraded T-Mobile Ameo, Today at the 2008 GSMA Mobile World Congress, HTC Corp. announced an updated version of the HTC Advantage that introduces new software, increased storage and an improved keyboard. The HTC Advantage is an ideal companion for the business traveler who needs a powerful and portable device that includes constant connectivity. Developed from the ground up to be extremely portable, yet powerful, the HTC Advantage integrates a broad set of features into a compact and innovative design.

Based on a future version of Windows Mobile, the updated HTC Advantage includes a customized HTC Home today screen that provides one-touch access to emails, text messages, missed calls, calendar appointments and contacts, as well as current weather conditions and forecasts for hundreds of cities around the world.
The HTC Advantage features HTC’s TouchFLO software which enhances finger touch scrolling and browsing of Web pages, documents, messages and contact lists. The Advantage will also include Opera Mobile 9 and Google Maps for mobile.

In addition to the many software enhancements, the HTC Advantage also adds a variety of new and improved hardware features including 16GB of storage, a new improved keyboard with haptic feedback and an updated version of VueFLO using a G-sensor that recognizes the screen orientation of the device for optimal customer usage.

"Having established broader boundaries for mobile computing with the first HTC Advantage a year ago, we are introducing a wealth of new enhancements focused on improving the overall touch screen and keyboard user experience," said Peter Chou, president and CEO of HTC. "Our goal with the HTC Advantage is to provide a small connected mobile computing device that will replace notebook PCs on daily commutes or short trips."

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. Its 5-inch VGA color touch screen and innovative, magnetic QWERTY keyboard are ideal not just for editing Microsoft Office documents, but also for enjoying leisure time. Users can watch videos, browse the web, use instant Outlook push e-mail, synchronize their contacts, tasks and calendar, and navigate anywhere with inbuilt GPS and TomTom NAVIGATOR 6.
Offering a complete package of connectivity, the HTC Advantage offers a wide variety of Wireless connectivity options such as triband HSPDA, Wi-Fi and stereo Bluetooth 2.0 connectivity.

The updated HTC Advantage will be available in March in select countries across Europe.

Cheers ~ Arne

Any news of price or availability in the US of the advantage 7510? I've been wanting to ditch my axim x51v and cellphone for one device, but features mean everything to me and I couldn't part with the large crisp screen of my axim. When I first read about the advantage 7501 in pocket pc mnagazine I knew this was my the device I had been waiting for. However I knew to wait on some good reviews, updates, and price decrease. Now I obviously have to wait for the 7510, just wondering how much longer I will be waiting.

No news yet. So far, HTC hasn't given any information about a possible launch of the HTC Advantage 7511 in the U.S. and therefore you might want to keep an eye on retailers like MobilePlanet/Expansys. I'm sure they will carry the UK version in the U.S. as well.
The Advantage 7510 is expected to be released in March.
