Excerpt: Med S710, nok HTC udviklet en af de mest brugervenlige smartphones i nyere tid. Det var ned til innovative design, der er indarbejdet den ser ud og enkelhed af en straight-forward bar telefon på overfladen og den øgede anvendeligheden af en QWERTY tastatur nedenunder.
Summary: Aside from 3G, this update to the S710 adds little improvement. In fact, the S730 is slightly heavier than its predecessor and delivers less battery life. Whether you go for the S730 will depend largely on how much you need 3G
Pros: 3G connectivity with HSDPA; supports two-way video calling; slide-out Qwerty keyboard; accessible microSD card slot.
Cons: Bulky and heavy for a smart phone; moderate battery life.
Summary: The volume level delivered by the earpiece is quite average, as you might not be able to get what’s said on the other end while in a busy street or underground. The loudspeaker for call alerts is not a stellar performer either.
PHOTOVIEW: Hands-on with the HTC S730 Windows Mobile Smartphone

Excerpt: The HTC S730 is the Windows Mobile 6 Standard smartphone I've awaited. Equipped with UMTS/HSDPA and quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as WiFi b/g and Bluetooth 2.0+EDR as well as its fast 400 MHz Qualcomm processor, it's the perfect device for those consumers and business professionals who want high...
Excerpt: Whoever said smartphones are ugly, awkward, sluggish devices? T-Mobile’s Wing is trying not to listen. First off, it looks hot. The metallic blue body is finished with a rubbery texture that’s a joy to fondle, and the luminous 240 x 320-pixel touchscreen slides up to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard.
Pros: Rubberized, square keypad lets you type quickly despite being tiny. Wi-Fi and EDGE connectivity ensures Internet access almost anywhere. 2.3-inch wide body fits neatly into purse or pant pocket. Battery lasts for a solid six days.
Cons: Painfully long delays navigating through menu. Interface sometimes looks messy and disorganized. Touchscreen commands respond slowly when running multiple apps. Stylus location on bottom left not handy for most users.
Excerpt: The HTC S730 is the natural progression from the earlier S710, but this time they have added the much sought after 3G option that was missing from the latter. But is this enough to ensure its value?
Excerpt: The S730 is the latest incarnation of HTC's popular sliding-keyboard candy bar smartphone. We looked at the previous version (in Orange SPV E650 clothing) in our Smartphone Labs in issue 160 ( web ID: 145113 ), and found it to be a superb phone, albeit one hampered by a lack of high-speed mobile...
