One other upgraded feature I forgot to mention...this phone is quad band. The sp3i is tri-band (although you can buy it with different frequencies enabled for different markets).
This is a nice looking phone. It seems to be an update to the sp3i, with the upgrades being:
-better bluetooth implementation
-better connectivity (EDGE, WiFi)
-better camera (1.3mp, previously it was 0.3)
-more storage (up to 8gb)
-GPS kit (optional)
As long as this has the same interface as the sp3i, I am definitely going to get one. What I like BEST about the sp3i's interface is that the address book has a T9 search. This makes it really easy and fast to find contacts. You don't have to do multiple keypresses to get to the right letter, and you don't have to wait for the cursor to advance. What I mean is, if you need to find albert:
- you press the 2 key and it finds all matches for A, B, and C.
-then you press the 5 key and it finds all matches for AJ, AK, AL, BJ, BK, BL, CJ, CK, CL
-next you press the 2 key and it finds
AJA, AJB, AJC
ALA, ALB, ALC
It might seem like a lot, but with 3 letters usually 90% of the combinations are meaningless, so you narrow it down very quickly. I have 2,000 contacts and usually find the person I am looking for in 3 or 4 keys. It is superb!
If this phone has all of these features, and gps, I am getting it. My only concern is, how do you use the gps or the camera if you are on the phone? I guess a headset would be useful.
Well done, HTC. Looks like you have come out with another fantastic phone. I hate sliders and flips and all that nonsense. I really like basic candy bar shapes and I hate phones that are too wide as they are uncomfortable to hold.
I also don't like touch screens as they are always getting dirty, get scratched, and provide no tactile feedback. Unless you look at it, you don't know which button you are pressing, whereas you can dial or type in text without looking at a keyboard.
All that said, if you really need to edit MS Office stuff, then this is not the phone for you. The small screen and keyboard would make that difficult. I think surfing the web would also be a bit challenging. I don't do those things on the go...so it's not a big deal for me.
(UMTS, WiFi, slot cards, FM radio, fax, and Microsoft office capabilities)if you wants these features, you need to get yourself a htc pda. they are fantastic, nice fone tho!!!!!!!..
Heillo members of Qtek, while you make good business mobile phones, you seems to be lackiing behind in terms of needed techical specifications in today's and tomorrow's mobile phones. By that i mean that should learn to include UMTS, WiFi, slot cards, FM radio, fax, and Microsoft office capabilities, in addition to your current specs. Introducing new phones to the market without these specs make no sense. So Qtek, just do it!
very impressive but i wish it had built in flash and touchscreen then it would be the most perfect phone for me.

This is HTC manufactured device. HTC is huge company, makes OEM products for HP, Apple etc. Their mobiles sold under many names; this is (I believ) fourth generation Win mobiles.
Does built-in WIFI mean that you can go to any access-point (and after connecting successfully - obviously) you can browse/download off the internet using this phone, free of charge?
That brand is a distributer of the manufacturer HTC from Taiwan. HTC has made a lot of smartphone and they have been sold under some brands like Qtek, I-mate, O2, T-mobile, Audiovox and others.
Apparently all those are excellent products.
could any one tell me if this will be avilable on orange network? .... it looks like a very good mobie phone (wifi) , so far i have had all the spvs , i did not like C550 i think there is something wrong with layout of key pads not a very good design .
It must be something else. I need not to say much because thats gonna be too much.I just have to go get mine right away. I hope 8320 be comming up with gps.
This is a new company to me(also to the asian). tell me something abt this company.
1. I hope the memore can up to 128 RAM or
2. THe panel can be hand controlled.
Hi every one,
I think if this phone includes FM radio and its camera is 2 MP ... that would be great
and may would be better than K750 or W800
i hope this would b a great mobile, nice features in such a small thing, 1.3M camera, OS Microsoft, wi-fr, bluetooth, External memory, edge, music player etc.
