A Full Feature Reasonably Priced Smartphone: HTC SMT5800
Personal Electronics buzz

Excerpt: My primary reason for selecting the HTC SMT5800 is the ease in sending e-mail, the full QWERTY keyboard and it runs on Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.0. I particularly like it because the QWERTY keyboard slides out when in use and is tucked away when not in use.
Conclusion: The HTC 5800 Fusion is a nice addition to the smartphone line offered by Qwest, including the Motorola Q and HTC Mogul. It is the only smartphone currently offered that features both a standard dial-pad on the front, and QWERTY keypad that slides out from the side. While we were not impressed with the layout of the QWERTY keypad, like its S710 brother, it is still useful for typing in messages, and can then be slid under the phone and out of the way.
Pros: Slide-out QWERTY keypad, Windows Mobile 6 Standard operating system, EVDO 3G data access, 2.4” QVGA display, microSD card slot, Bluetooth
Excerpt: For years High Technology Computer Corporation (HTC ) has made phones for other Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) like Microsoft and Audiovox. Recently they decided to proudly produce products under their own name. Horray! The HTC S720 Libra is a dual-band CDMA smartphone slider that offers up a rich feature set within an attractive housing. When closed, the Libra measures 103x51x19 mm.
Excerpt: HTC’s 5800 is a powerful, EVDO-capable, entry into the PDA market. With a candy bar form factor and slide-out full QWERTY keyboard, the 5800 maintains a comfortable size (4.07” x 2.01” x 0.76”), without sacrificing functionality. When closed, the 5800 has the standard 12-key keypad, and additional buttons are placed in familiar places.
