HTC Advantage Ships in US

HTC today revealed that its upgraded version of the X7501 Advantage hybrid smartphone is shipping to the US. As promised, the finished version runs Windows Mobile 6 Professional, which preloads Office Mobile for completing basic work using the slide-out keyboard and 5-inch touchscreen. The device additionally preserves the 3G wireless access provided through HSDPA and includes a GPS receiver that optionally links with TeleNav routing services provided by a few carriers in the region. The 3-megapixel camera, 8GB hard drive, and miniSD slot have also survived the transition.

Like the Nokia N95 and other high-end phones, the Advantage is not linked to any one carrier and will need a SIM card from a GSM cellular provider such as AT&T or T-Mobile before it can use its phone and 3G wireless functions. HTC currently sells the mini-computer through Amazon and CompUSA for $900 and has not announced any deals with carriers to offer the phone subsidized with a service contract.
