HTC TyTN II Europe Launch

HTC today erased all doubts for its latest smartphone with the Europe-wide debut of the TyTN II, its official name for the Kaiser. The smartphone iwill now see a release in most of the continent as both a locked and unlocked device with new software features to complement its distinctive angled, slide-out keyboard. The standard Windows Mobile 6 front-end has been replaced with HTC Home, a control panel with quick touch access to contacts (including contacts by photo), e-mail, and weather; it also includes TomTom 6 Taster Edition software to get started using the integrated GPS receiver.

The pan-European version of the TyTN sequel boasts every hardware feature already revealed for the device, such as the 3-megapixel back camera, a front videoconferencing camera, HSDPA mobile broadband, and 802.11g Wi-Fi. All versions should come standard with Windows Mobile 6 Professional and Office Mobile but will vary in price and availability depending on the country. Most versions, including the unlocked version, will be available in September through Orange, Telefonica, and Vodafone as well as HTC. The rebranded MDA Vario III for T-Mobile will be ready in October alongside a wider release for Orange.

The phone supports the full range of North American GSM networks and is reportedly set to launch as the AT&T Tilt in early September, and in the near future for Canada as the TyTN II for Rogers.
