I have had this phone for over a week, and let me tell you: I LOVE IT.
I'm not gonna go through the specifications, which are nicely detailed in this site.
But I see a lot of people complaining about it not having 3G or HSPDA, and its screen not being touch sensitive.
What I can tell you is that this is a smartphone - if you want a PDA, get one!
Here in Brazil there is no 3G carriers yet, so EDGE and wi-fi are perfect for me!
I have installed Skype, TMPCP, Pocket TV, etc - evert single program worked PERFECTLY. FLAWLESSLY.
Transferred files via bluetooth.
Connected my laptop to the Internet with the Active Sync cable (this is the only downside, as I was unable to connect via bluetooth).
Sync was perfect, also adding my Live Messenger contacts to my Contact list.
The voice quality is very good, and the camera, even though it does not have a flash, is really good, providing sharp pictures.
All and all - A GREAT PHONE! LOVE IT!
Nice phone, too bad they do not offer one that does not use Microsoft software. Active Sync with bluetooth does not work, native mail program is primitive.
Can the HTC S710 be attached to a nokia bluetooth car-kit?
Please tell me
this is the best phone i have ever seen in my life regards from michael & jackson bcoz it is used by by close bro pp.....
this phone is cute looking .the best part of the mobile phone is that it allows u 2 chat itself due to massenger applicatoin.................
and though used by the person who have sacrificed his life in r tec
this phone is a superb model produced by htc. especially becoz it is used by pp.....
Been using this phone for about 2 months now. I have to say that its one of the worst mobiles I have ever used.
Not only does Windows Mobile suck in the first place, the mobile itself is super slow and has to be restarted several times a day.
No WAP push available. No GPS either.
Spend your money on another brand is my advice.
What should I choose between Nokia E65 and SPV E650 (HTC S710)???
They both have WLAN, one has Symbian 9.1 and the other WM 6.0.
Also the SPV si cheaper (in Romania).
What do you think which is better???
Visit http://www.webmessenger.com/products/mimwinmobile6.htm . WebMessenger Mobile Instant Messenger for Windows Mobile 6.0 is a Wireless Instant Messaging application for Windows Mobile 6.0 devices and phones.
The application allows you to chat with buddies on all Public IM Networks (AOL, MSN, Yahoo, ICQ, Google Talk and Jabber) and see their online status. Once you login with WebMessenger, you will be logged automatically into all of the IM Networks you have selected.
It's available in Indonesia labelled as Dopod C500. HTC owns Dopod and sells in southeast Asia under that name.
hey, is it possible to get msn messenger on this phone? i noticed it doesnt mention instant messenger on the feat. thanks,
I baught this fone 5 days back and i am totall satisfied with this fone. I am regular user of Sony Erricsson. The SE fones were freat but HTC S710 is the best fone in its range its a full money value fone and battery back up is good it lasts for 3 days. Hats off to HTC they have done a great job Keep it UP. You people will disconnect NOKIA if you all continue this type of Innovation with quality and specially the price.
GREAT FONE GO FOR IT
oh 2 more things:
- supports push mail!!! (u get your emails instantly when they land on the server)
- turn off Bluetooth and wireless when you don't need them and you will be very satisfied with the battery capacity
I have been using WM phones for 4 yeas now (nokia before it). the main reason is the amazing compatibility with Exchange servr that makes all my contacts and emails in sync. even when i lost my phone(twice) 1 sync made my new phone look exactly the same as the lost one, but I will not go into the details of Windows mobile.
Here is why i love this phone:
- Wireless access at home: I am using Skype and MSN messenger (do i need to say more?)
- Great mp3 player (2 GB memory card)
- 70% of my emails are answered by the phone and the keyboard is just amazing (i get around 300 emails per day)
- seamless integration with outlook: here's an example: u take a picture of a friend with the 2MP camera and assign the picture to his contact info. next time you sync your email u get the piture to outlook and will get his picture on all his emails
