HTC Advantage 7501 SmartPhone/UMPC

HTC Advantage 7501

The HTC Advantage 7501 is the answer for those that want a smartphone that has a larger than average screen with a larger than average QWERTY keyboard. It’s smaller than a UMPC, but considerably larger than your typical handset, even the run of the mill smartphone, like a Blackberry, Treo or typical Win Mobile phone. Take a look at the pic to see what’s cool about the 7501 – the keyboard slides out at an angle to the screen so you can type normally while viewing the screen at a decent angle. Pretty cool.

The HTC Advantage is chock full of features: it sports an Intel PXA270 chip running at 624MHz with a separate ATI Graphics Chip; it runs Windows Mobile 6, and has both IE and Opera installed; 256MB ROM, 128MB RAM, 8GB disk; a relatively large 5″ touchscreen TFT-LCD screen; HSDPA/UMTS/GSM/GPRS/EDGE Quad band capable; Bluetooth 2.0; WiFi 802.11b/g; USB 1.1; 3 megapixel camera with flash; speaker phone; GPS; miniSD slot and more.

The 7501 is availble now. It’s not cheap and it’s not light (about 0.8 lbs), but when you think of what you can do with this device – it’s way lighter than even a UMPC, it can store quite a bit of data on its 8GB disk, it can connect to regular computer networks, it’s small enough to fit nicely on an airplane tray table even in coach – this may be the 1 device for you.

Price: approx $849.99 (unlocked)
