Worlds First 3G tri-band Windows Mobile phones launched by HTC!

19 06 2006

HTC has finally risen from cheap Chinese OEM to become a real global brand name.  What you’re seeing here is the formally codenamed HTC Hermes, now called the HTC TyTN, It is the next iteration of my current phone (the Tmobile MDA/Cingular 8125/HTC Wizard). The biggest deal here is the HSDPA/UMTS high speed 3G data connection this baby carries. This means super fast web page downloads and live video mobile video conferencing (with the help of a second video camera up front). The guts of the phone get a big upgrade too with a 50% faster processor (now a 300mhz Samsung). The main camera gets bumped up to 2megapixels and the screen is slightly larger to boot.

We first saw these bad boys at CES in January, but now they’re available in Europe.  Anyone know when we’ll see this stateside on Cingulars new network?
