this is a good idea... but i think it lacks one feature that would make it the ultimate all in one package. A GPS, they did it with the advantage. If it had a GPS I think it would be great for Aviators, Private/comercial. maybe Garmin and HTC could brain storm that one! i would like one of those!
Really good to see HTC pushing up into the ultra portable laptop/tablet space. Could next release have 1024x768 TFT, 60GB solid state drive, IR4 port, UMTS, GPS & FM tuner in same form factor please? Such a machine would give IBM HP Dell Sony etc something to thing about! I'd ditch my x60 tablet.
This is very beautiful...but it wont fit in my pocket...yes i like it very much but many computer companies will be able to create such things ....what i need is the same specifications but also to fit in my pocket. Great idea but not user friendly....it is not always about hardware it is also about service ...there are out in the market other also gsm mini laptops things...not interested ..i believe htc advantage is better...
to guys asking if there is USB... there was! but i don't know if it's 1.1 or 2.0 but as the device uses windows vista, it should be USB 2.0 as 1.1 is old for the newer OS. i think it's the better choice compared to SAMSUNG Q1 and SONY UX17GP UMPCs...=D
We can't cal this a phone.i think htc should manufacture laptops from now on.why spend too much on a phone like this if you can get a laptop cheaper than this.any way the features are overwhelming
Wawaweewow!!! just got my Dopod 838Pro last feb and i'm already dreaming of having this beauty... dang!
wouldn't this cellular phone overheat if its used for a long time? and for moving the cursor i guess its touchscreen but can we use mouse?
OMFG, what is this for? is this a cellular, anyway? or just a notebook with a ringing option? so big... so heavy... so huge... blah.
wow my god its a real pc holy moly wow its a first gen p4 , that small windows vista ???? ho leee moly ,
i think that HTC does do some good things. i can't wait to get my hands on this device. It looks awesome. Does it support a direct printer connection? I really think that the HTC people have really achieved a respectable position in my heart.!!
A few points for your thinking mind which is over excited. These queries should calm you down. I agree that I like this "MOBTOP" (I am innovative already), but a few questions remain unanswered:-
1) what does "videocall" mean in 1.2 MP camera. Is the camera only 1.2 MP?
2) NO FM (radio)
3) What about GPS?
4) Is the USB port 1.1 or 2.0 ??
If you have good questions to help HTC, then share it
Wishing you luck HTC..As for iphones...where will they hide themselves?? Anything better than this guys then LET us know.
Hi guys! I am using HTC Dopod 838Pro at the moment. I thought I could use it for a year. Not even 6mths, HTC Shift comes out and should be available in 2 months time.
However, I need the truth about its processor, its RAM and its storage. These were not spelt out properly in the specs.Correct me if I am wrong, the mini slot is meant for you to connect to all these considering the basic specifications of its RAM, CPU and storage were not made known. To quote an example, HTC must mention the brand name of its processor like ARM, Samsung etc and speed. If not we cannot assume that this phone is a laptop replacement or nearer.
HTC Shift must itemised these...
goood god , this phone is.....the ultimate phone...and the next technology to come on our regulary mobile phones...good job nice product it realy has everything , more than a phone , more then a laptop
