question, HTC's latest Windows Mobile Standard smartphone, the HTC Vox
(commercially available as HTC S710 and Orange SPV E650), is a compact and
stylish messaging device which features - more or less - everything except UMTS
On the first sight, this compact smartphone just looks like a stylish phone,
but, thanks to the cleverly concealed semi-sliding keyboard, it makes light work
of messaging, web browsing and calls. Viewing Microsoft Office Word and Excel
documents on the go is a pleasure on the 2.4" screen with landscape view option
and users can stay connected via user-friendly, real-time E-Mail in its original
rich HTML format (thanks to Windows Mobile 6) and the ability to chat over
Orange will first launch the HTC Vox as Orange SPV E650 across most of its
European markets in the first half of this year as part of its Signature range.
The Orange SPV E650 will feature a customized Homescreen with icons that provide
one-click access to key business functions such as Internet access, E-Mail,
calendar and contact information.
In other areas, where Orange isn't present, HTC will sell the device under it's
own brand as HTC S710. Unsubsidized, the estimated retail price of the HTC S710
is around 399 Euro. Too bad that HTC hasn't have any plans yet to release the
device in North America.
