CTIA: HTC's new devices

Posted by Tricia Duryee at 2:26 PM

ORLANDO, Fla. -- HTC, the Taiwan mobile device manufacturer with its North American headquarters in Bellevue, released two new mobile devices today that are not your typical phone.

The gadgets that the world's largest provider of Microsoft Windows Mobile devices unveiled look like miniature laptops and are part of a whole new category "ultra mobile devices."

The new HTC Shift.

The first one -- the HTC Shift -- uses Windows Vista with cellular 3G connectivity at half the weight of typical laptops; it is about the size of two DVD cases.
Some of the specs include: a 7-inch widescreen touch display, a
30-gigabyte hard drive, Tri-Band UMTS/HSDPA, Quad-Band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, Bluetooth 2.0 and Wi-Fi.

The second one -- the HTC Advantage -- uses the scaled down Windows Mobile 6 operating system. The HTC Advantage includes a thin,
magnetically connected Qwerty keyboard and advanced connectivity with
Tri-Band UMTS/HSDPA, Quad-Band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, Bluetooth 2.0 and Wi-Fi.

The HTC Advantage will be available through Amazon.com and other
retailers this summer. The HTC Shift will be available in the U.S. and
Europe in the third quarter. Specifications, pricing and availability will be announced when available.
