Summary: The reception quality was never an issue with the P3470 – our calls were pretty loud, although we could use some more volume for call-unfriendly environments. The loudspeaker is slightly above average volume-wise, meaning that it is likely to get to you while on a busy street. The vibro alert is moderate in terms of strength.
The communicator is set to arrive in early/mid May at a price point of 550-600 USD, which is what the still-on-the-market HTC P3300 costs.

Excerpt: We were massive fans of the fully-featured and liked its 3G update, the . The P3470 matches the quad-band P800W for features, sporting BlueTooth, WiFi, GPS and 2G (EDGE) download speeds. The latter makes it (much) cheaper than other HTC models and means battery life is increased – it was almost five days before we needed to recharge. The processor speed has doubled to 400MHz making everything a bit zippier although the low-powered P800W’s battery lasted longer.
