    Its specs are actually promising:

    WM6 (Crossbow) for Smartphone
    TI OMAP 850 200MHz CPU
    ROM 128MB / RAM 64MB
    2.4" QVGA Screen
    Quad band GSM/GPRS/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900MHz
    WiFi 802.11b/g
    MicroSD
    2MP Camera
    "Semi-automatic" sliding QWERTY keyboard

    And really impressive dimensions:
    HTC S710: 100 mm x 50 mm x 18 mm ; 130 g
    Vs Treo 650:111 mm x 58 mm x 20 mm ; 157 g

    And design-wise is actually better than the standard (poor) HTC line:





    It will be introduced in Barcelona GSM2007, and will be on the stores by March...

    CONS:

    - Not 3G ( I can personally live without that).
    - No Touchscreen (I can live without this either, my current HTC S620 - first smartphone without touchscreen in years - is much easier to use than I could imagine).
    - Slow processor (In my oppinion the main drawback, I would prefer to see in this device a 400MHz Samsung vs. TI OMAP 200MHz)

    I thought this phone was coming out for Sprint and Verizon with evdo rev-a support support? I think I remeber seeing a picture of a green phone from HTC that looked like this one unless that another phone.

    does anyone what the differences will be between the crossbow for smartphone vs crossbow for ppc? i think i'd rather get the libra vs a 6800 but only if it can run programs like agile,tcpmp,gsplayer...if not i'll get the 6800 even though i dont use the word,excel,powerpoint stuff. i have to see how much faster the rev a is but i think it will be enough to make me upgrade from the 6700

    Well, as they mention above, the EVDO version sees to be a higher end device with the same form factor, while the GSM device has a slower processor and no 3G support. Same OS and design however. Its probably going to confuse the market like hell, especially if both come out in USA.

    Well I saw pics of the CDMA version confirmed for Verizon. But will the CDMA version be the same size or will it be thicker?

    You are thinking of the HTC Libra. Not much detail is known about this phone.

    Yeah that is it but I saw a pic of it in green. I would trade my 700w in for the Libra if it looks more like the S710 and is the same size as the 710.

    for some, the slideout keyboard is a glaring negative as well.

    wait both these phones are not touch screen?
  12. #12  
    Yes, they are both Windows Mobile Standard (hehe) which means smartphone edition, which means no touch screen.

    Oh that just turned me off a little. It soo seemed like it was going to be a touch screen device. I guess I have to wait for the wx instead of this. And why does the green one look different from the CDMA model you posted.

    I just ordered HTC S710. I am a on/off fan of the slide out keyboard, but this looks to be a pretty slick device. The only downer I really see is the absence of 3G which is tough coming from a 3G device. I have read that it feels like UMTS download speeds though. I guess we will see. I will post my findings when it arrives.

    well there is the S730 that is coming out, similar device to this but with 3G and I think two cameras.

    I've read Q4 07 that will be available.

    I received the HTC S710 in the mail today. I'm liking it so far. I like the size. It's A LOT smaller then the pictures show on the web. I am still trying to get used to the keyboard. I am sure this will just take some time. The OS is a little sluggish. Even though it running WM6. It's definetly different then any of my previous devices.

    ^Look forward to hearing your views on the S710. It does look like HTC shortchanged the S710 a little.

    32bit Texas Instruments OMAP 850, 201MHz CPU
    16KB D-Cache / 8KB I-Cache
    128 MB ROM, 63.4MB usable
    64 MB RAM, 49.6MB accessible


    as opposed to what's expected on the CDMA S720

    32bit Qualcomm MSM7500 Chipset, 400MHz CPU
    16KB D-Cache / 16KB I-Cache
    128 MB ROM
    64 MB RAM

    or the future generation S730

    32bit Samsung SC32442, 400MHz CPU
    16KB D-Cache / 16KB I-Cache
    128 MB ROM
    64 MB RAM

    I think 3G needs faster processors to manage the data throughput. They consistently have higher MHz ratings compared to GPRS / EDGE devices.

    Those specs are very telling. I really like this device after 24 hours. The OS gets a slittle slow here and there. I love how they included (finally) Mobile Office. Looking at attachements is better then ever. Scrolling is pretty slick as it scrolls per line. Kind of a smooth effect. I love the HTML email view in WM6. WM6 STILL does not allow you to start typing names in the "To" field of a email/text message. Which forces another trip to the menu. The quality in this thing is amazing. I can't imagine not having rubber paint on devices anymore. Reminds me of my DirectTV remote :-). Having had that paint on my Blackjack and 750's, its nice. WiFI is nice as I don't have 3G. I'm not as pressing to have WiFi when I have 3G, but in this case its a must. I downloaded a 35MB podcast via Newsbreak using the WiFi for example. If I can do that using 3G or WiFi then I'm happy.

    More to come...
