HTC did not bring much to the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, but they did give us a sneak peak at the HTC P3470. When it was first announced, the HTC P3470 was described as being a "low-end" WM6 GPS equipped phone with HTC's TouchFlo interface. Unfortunately, the HTC P3470 will be carrying a price tag of around $600.
The HTC P3470 does include TomTom Navigator 6for AGPS-enabled satnav, 1GB microSD card for mapping and other data storage (as well as 256MB flash and 128MB RAM of internal memory). P3470 has a 71mm (2.8-inch) screen, a 2-megapixel, and 256MB of internal memory. The first carrier to offer the device will be Orange in the UK. The HCT P3470 has an expected release date around the last week of February.
I know you are porably tires of seeing videos of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 by now, but it seems like everyone is getting their hand on the device. Lets just hope the rumors are true that this is actually an HTC produces device. Even if it isn’t, Sony Ericsson has created a nice little buzz around their Xperia X1 Windows Mobile device.
It seems as though our friends at www.mobileburn.com got some hands on time with Sony Erisson’s Xperia X1 today.
Engadget was able to dig up some press pictures of the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1. One thing we can definitely point out about Sony's new device is that it is probably one of the nicest looking WM devices we have ever laid our eyes on. If the rumors about HTC putting this together for SONY Ericsson are true, I hope to see some of the styling cues in other HTC devices later this year. Just imagine an Android powered HTC device with a look this nice.
