the CTIA Wireless, which is currently happening in Orlando, Engadget Mobile and
Mobility Site got its hands on the HTC S720 - HTC's CDMA version of the HTC Vox
aka HTC S710.
While both devices are running on Microsoft's Windows Mobile Smartphone
platform, the S710 was announced to be released with Windows Mobile 6 while the
(so far not officially announced) S720, Engadget Mobile and Mobility Site got in
its hands, is currently running Windows Mobile 5 only. Other differences are,
that the S710 is a GSM/GPRS/EDGE quadband smartphone while the S720 sports
CDMA's EV-DO standard. Not sure why the S720 became so squarish but I like the
Vox ID more:
No word yet, if the S720 will also sports WiFi, like the S710 but I fear it
will be left. Also HTC hasn't announced any carrier partnerships yet, so it's
not clear when the S720 will be launched.
Check out Engadget Mobile and Mobility Site for more photos.
