Due out any time now, and thus soon to available at CompUSA (who made a little pre-release error but cut off that flow), Amazon.com and others, the HTC Advantage X7501 does things a little different. While PDA phones have morphed into phones, or tried to, in the past few years, HTC tries something novel and useful: a PDA phone that's firmly rooted in handheld computing. Looking like a tiny notebook, the HTC Advantage X7501 runs Windows Mobile 6 Professional on a 624MHz processor with 128 megs of RAM, 256 megs of flash ROM and an 8 gig microdrive. It has a VGA display, VGA-out for TV viewing and presentations, detachable QWERTY keyboard, a 3 megapixel autofocus camera, Bluetooth 2.0, WiFi and a full GPS inside. Whew! And there's a quad band unlocked GSM radio with EDGE and triband HSDPA 3G for voice and data. This is the US version, due for imminent release at US retail outlets. A viable and interesting mobile computing alternative to UMPCs and micro PCs.
