The other two devices are smartphones and many of you may already heard rumors about them. The HTC Erato is the more interesting one. Up until now even its code name has remained unknown. The device is to be released as HTC S420 and is supposed to be powered by a 400MHz Samsung processor and Windows Mobile 6 Standard. It should also come equipped with a 2.4" 65K colors TFT display with a QVGA resolution. The HTC S420 (HTC Erato) would have quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support plus 3G/HSDPA-enabled telephony. An FM radio, a microSD memory card slot, a 2 megapixel camera and the integrated Sirf Star III GPS receiver add nicely to the picture. The HTC S420 (HTC Erato) is expected in April 2007.
The HTC S730 (HTC Wings) would be the possible successor of the HTC S710 (HTC Vox). It would feature the same dual keypad design as the S710 but will be powered by the more powerful Samsung 400MHz processor and would again run on Windows Mobile 6 Standard. As far as connectivity is concerned it comes with quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support plus 3G and HSDPA and Wi-Fi. It would also boast a 2 megapixel camera and an integrated Sirf Star III GPS receiver. Basically the only thing that would separate it from being a fully-fledged PocketPC is the lack of toucscreen capability which is not a necessary bad thing since many users prefer to do without a stylus. The HTC S730 (HTC Wings) is expected in July 2007.
