HTC has announced a simplified smartphone called the 3400i. The PDA features a suitably simplified interface but has been released and targetted to sell in large numbers, due to its reduced price tag. The published price, in the USA, is the equivalent of £245 in the UK. That compares to around £460 for a HTC Diamond, with all of its attendant features, which has been recently released and has been highly praised by both media and customers.
The entry level 3400i mobile phone is powered by Windows Mobile 6 Professional and includes an application bundle that will allow you to send emails, watch video and listen to music. They include: DirectPush Mail, Internet Explorer Mobile, Office Mobile, Windows Media Player 10 and Pictures and Videos. It also includes Office-type utilities plus Windows Live Messenger and HTC Home.
A quad-band mobile with a 2MP camera and a speakerphone, the handset sprts a 2.8in screen. No UK related distribution or price news was forthcoming.
