Slim, pocketable design ; Comfortable full-QWERTY keyboard

2-megapixel camera is just average ; Multimedia features are unimpressive ; T-Mobile Dash Smartphone ; Dash Review, by Ginny Mies, PC World July 1, 2009 ; While the T-Mobile myTouch 3G seems to be the hottest of the carrier's offerings this summer, the...

T-Mobile Dash


This sleek smart phone is feature-packed, yet nearly lacks the horsepower to keep up with itself.

Slim design with soft-touch texture ; Wi-Fi and stereo Bluetooth ; Works with MyFaves service ; Instant messaging apps included

Relatively slow performance ; Spotty network coverage

T-Mobile Dash (Windows Mobile 6) Review


The upgrade to Windows Mobile 6 adds support for Microsoft's productivity applications.

First phone to offer Windows Mobile 6 ; Svelte design

Lacks applications for editing files

Still, overall, this capable and extremely svelte handset is a strong contender in the PDA phone sweepstakes

Expert review by:

T-Mobile Dash


Focused more on fun than on work, the sleek T-Mobile Dash is a device designed to appeal to the Sidekick set. Though it resembles the Motorola Q, the candy bar-style phone is rubberized, rounded, and otherwise made friendlier for riding along in a pocket.

T-Mobile Dash (aka HTC Excalibur)


One point we want to make up front is that the Dash does not have a touch screen. Like the Q, the Dash runs Windows Mobile 5 Smartphone Edition, which doesn't support this functionality, so navigating the mobile's menus and registering commands are...

The T-Mobile Dash has a sleek design with a vibrant color screen and features integrated Bluetooth 2.0 and Wi-Fi; push e-mail capabilities; multimedia functions; and a 1.3-megapixel camera. The quadband smart phone also has good call quality and...

The T-Mobile Dash's volume touch strip isn't always responsive. The camera interface is also confusing and picture quality is subpar

With a sleek design, good performance, and a robust set of productivity and wireless options, the T-Mobile Dash is an all-in-one hit and earns its reputation as a Motorola Q killer.

T-Mobile Dash


The Dash is more about finesse than power. It's extremely elegant, clad in soft-touch black plastic that feels great in the hand. The handset is light but feels solid; it weighs 4.2 ounces. The 2.5-inch, landscape-format screen has a resolution of...

Excellent design. Great phone audio quality. Wi-Fi

Annoying volume button. No Microsoft Office document editors for Windows Mobile Smartphone ; Watch the T-Mobile Dash Video Review

The best features of T-Mobile's SDA and MDA come together in a delightful little handheld.

The T-Mobile Dash is the latest in a new generation of slim, thin smart phones, following the lead of the Motorola Q. Sporting a slim design and full QWERTY keyboard with a landscape screen, the Dash is definitely targeting the messaging market. With...

The T-Mobile Dash sits in the same spot on the market as the Motorola Q; it's a smart phone sporting solid functionality with a fully QWERTY keyboard, large screen and a slim design. And the Dash had the edge on the Q in many ways; it has superior...
