HTC Advantage review

 

The biggest smartphone ever seen?

Wi-Fi connectivity and 3G ; Smartphone with detachable typewriter keyboard ; 3 megapixel camera with autofocus

Huge size ; Not easy to use as a phone ; Not easy to use as a camera

As a lightweight computing alternative it's an intriguing prospect, but it's perhaps too much of a departure from the form factor of a phone to be a serious contender as a smartphone

HTC Advantage X7501 review

 

The HTC Advantage X7501 is a hybrid mobile phone and PDA device whose great display doesn't make up for an awkward phone and poor keyboard.

All things considered, the HTC Advantage X7501 is a full-featured PDA with an awkward phone and a poorly designed keyboard. Sure, you get a choice of wireless carriers to use and no obligation to a contract, but this also means that you don't get the...

HTC Advantage X7501 PDA phone

 

A full-featured PDA with an awkward phone and a poorly designed keyboard. At around £550, the HTC Advantage X7501 costs more than many other PDA phones - indeed, as much as some basic notebook PCs, and more than some basic desktops with a monitor....

HTC Advantage

 

If you think of the HTC Advantage purely as smartphone, you're talling one hefty bit of kit - so big in fact that it comes in two parts. Weighing in at over 359g, the device sets some sort of record for a smartphone

HTC HTC Advantage X7501

 

The HTC Advantage X7501 is a smart phone trapped inside a tiny laptop's body. It has the inner workings of a handset-with features such as 3G, Wi-Fi, and Windows Mobile 6--and the shell of an Ultra-Mobile PC, similar to that of OQO's Model 02. In...

Plenty of included software ; Innovative design

Keyboard is hard to use ; Phone component doesn't always work well

A great display doesn't make up for an awkward phone and poor keyboard.

HTC Advantage

 

Poised somewhere between smartphones and UMPCs, HTC's unlocked Advantage is too compromised to excel.

Robust TeleNav GPS with comprehensive voice prompts. Stunning, bright screen. Includes basic document editing and robust keyboard. Built-in HSDPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth—you name it, it's in there.

Too large to be a primary mobile phone. Can make or receive calls only with headset or speakerphone. Occasional OS glitches. System performance is sluggish, even with fastest available processor. A shockingly high price.

Review: HTC Advantage X7501

 

On paper, the pocket-slate HTC Advantage literally has everything: A big, five-inch screen, integrated Wi-Fi and 3G radios, stereo Bluetooth, GPS, 3-megapixel camera, and a...

A true convergence device that can take on almost any mobile app. LED camera flash. 8GB Microdrive and miniSD slot included. Clever keyboard attachment, which also works to magnetically cover the screen. 12 long hours of talk time (for what it’s...

Slow camera produces average quality shots. No WPA for Wi-Fi limits surfing options. Low-res screen. Makes the iPhone look like a bargain. Integrated GPS costs per month

HTC Advantage

 

The Windows Mobile-based Advantage offers more speed and bang for your buck than a UMPC, but is it worth three times the price of a smart phone?

Big, crisp display ; Clever magnetic keyboard ; Fast processor ; Accurate GPS navigation with local search ; Very good HSDPA data speeds

Bulky design is too big for a pocket ; Mediocre call quality ; Some system freezes

Working With An Advantage - The HTC Advantage 7510 That Is

 

The 7510 is HTC's third version of the Advantage product line, which it bills as a Mobile Office, rather than a PDA or Pocket Phone. Originally introduced in 2007, it targets mobile professionals who want to keep in touch with the office, email, etc....

Beautiful, huge VGA screen ; Huge (16Gb) flash drive included ; Reasonable battery life (compared to a laptop) ; Full accessory pack

Interface really doesn't make good use of VGA real estate ; Phone really isn't integrated with the rest of the package ; Keyboard has limited tactile feedback ; Card (SIM and mini-SD) slot is very difficult to access
