Announced late last year in Europe and Asia, the HTC S740 - HTC's latest Windows Mobile Standard smartphone (see our photo- and videoviews) - wasn't compatible with North American UMTS bands since it supports European and Asian WCDMA frequencies at 900 and 2100 MHz only. Nevertheless, HTC America unveiled today that it now plans to launch a North American version - the HTC S743 - in the first quarter 2009 too. Like the S740, the S743 combines a traditional 12-key keypad design with a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard and it will supports AT&T's HSDPA (850/1900 MHz) network.

Featuring the same 'faceted' design first implemented in the highly popular HTC Touch Diamond, the HTC S743 was also engineered to deliver an outstanding voice experience. At a mere 1.7" wide, the HTC S743 fits comfortably into the palm of the hand, allowing for ergonomic and comfortable voice calls. Despite its narrow profile, the HTC S743 still boasts a large and bright 2.4" QVGA display for reading and responding to E-Mail and SMS or accessing the Internet.

With its full QWERTY keyboard, the HTC S743 is able to take advantage of its full suite of messaging options. As a Windows Mobile 6.1 based device, the HTC S743 interfaces seamlessly with Microsoft Exchange as well as personal POP3 and IMAP4 E-Mail protocols. Along with SMS and MMS messaging, support for a number of instant messaging standards is included with the HTC S743, making it fast and easy to stay in touch with friends and family while on the go.

The HTC S743 marks the latest HTC device to be made available through select retail outlets, including and A price wasn't given today.
