Snappy Maple Dashes to T-Mobile, on track for July 1st launch

The T-Mobile Dash 3G (T-Mobile's version of HTC Snap aka Maple and S522) was set to be released for T-Mobile July 1st. And sure enough, about a month away from launch, it was spotted at a T-Mobile's training.

T-Mobile Dash 3G

The Dash 3G is an update of T-Mobile's good ol' Dash and a needed one at that. It's T-Mobiles version of the HTC Snap, which throws in speedy HSDPA and ramps up the processing power. GPS is also on board and the D-pad has been replaced with a trackball. The rest is mostly the same, except the OS - it's Windows Mobile 6.1 for now, but it just might end up with 6.5 upgrade eventually.

The HTC Snap touts something called 'Inner Circle' - it's activated by a dedicated button and filters your emails so that only the ones from contacts in your "inner circle" (that is white list) remain. It's an interesting feature but does it really warrant a dedicated key? There are rumors that it won't be included in T-Mobile's version however, but that remains to be seen.

The T-Mobile Dash 3G is still targeted for a July 1st release but despite all the leaks we don't have any info on the pricing yet.

Seriously, what's the camera's quality? This looks like crap to me, as they didn't even mention it.
