HTC Mogul

 

To the surprise of some, companies continue to make handsets even after the Jobsian conception of the Jesus Phone, or, as it's more commonly known to PC users, the iPhone. Rather than proving itself to be the phone of phones (see review here), it is...

EVDO; Windows Mobile 6; Office Mobile; good voice quality

Pricey; odd scroll-wheel placement

The Mogul presents a good mix of power and portability. If you need access to Office apps while you’re on the road but still want an array of multimedia options, it’s a good, if pricey, choice.

Sprint Mogul

 

The successor to last year's wildly popular PPC-6700 sports a similarly splendid slide-out keyboard, three flavors of wireless (Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and EV-DO), a

Mobile Office apps let you create and edit docs. Phone doubles as wireless modem. 512-MB microSD card included in box

Frequently turns itself on for no apparent reason. Scattered controls result in accidental presses (especially when using camera). Speaker phone sounds crummy on other end. Camera snaps look fuzzy

Sprint Music Store on HTC Mogul

 

It's nice to have over-the-air music on Sprint's most powerful smart phone, but the execution should have been much better.

Easy-to-navigate interface ; Very fast download times ; Music pauses for calls

Lacks multitasking capabilities ; Can't access songs in airplane mode ; Unable to pause or change tracks over Stereo Bluetooth

HTC Mogul PPC-6800 (Sprint)

 

For a few months now, Sprint and Verizon Wireless customers have had to watch while their GSM counterparts at T-Mobile and AT&T got one new smartphone after another. Yet things are starting to look up--for Sprint subscribers, anyway. Today, the carrier...

The Sprint Mogul by HTC runs the latest Windows Mobile 6, has more memory included, and has a thinner design. It also boasts Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and EV-DO support as well as a 2-megapixel camera. Sprint will also offer an over-the-air update post-launch...

Some elements of the Mogul's hardware as well as speakerphone volume and quality is sub-par. A slower processor and limited program memory can sometimes slow down performance

The Sprint Mogul by HTC brings some needed design and feature updates to its predecessor, and refreshes the carrier's staid lineup of smartphones. It has some performance issues, but is worth the upgrade.

Sprint Mogul by HTC (PPC-6800)

 

Yup, welcome to Windows Mobile, in this case a relatively unadulterated Windows Mobile 6 Professional. The crazy array of hard buttons on the Mogul is this device's way of giving you quick access to some of Windows Mobile's many functions and of...

Fast processor. Lots of memory. Full keyboard. Wi-Fi and EV-DO

Jerky video. So-so camera. EV-DO Rev 0, not Rev A speeds

Hands-down, the most powerful handheld available for Sprint—although we'd be even happier if it was a bit more powerful.

The Mogul is a wonderful phone regardless of whether you are looking for a business phone or one to use everyday. With a great email client, messaging system, and long talk-time, it should be easy to stay connected and perform your daily actions no...

Good things come to those who wait. Well according to WMexperts.com those good things will be coming to HTC Mogul owners over at the Sprint camp immediately via a leaked HTC Mogul ROM. The ROM comes equipped with A-GPS and the hopefully promising EVDO...

Review: Sprint Mogul - A Windows Mobile 6 Powerhouse

 

The Sprint Mogul in brushed silver weighs in at 6.5 ounces and measures 4.3 x 2.3 x 0.7 inches, which makes it just a sliver heavier and taller than its predecessor, the PPC-6700, and just slightly thinner. It also takes the important step of making...

The sliding mechanism for the keyboard is smooth and makes a satisfying "click" when it snaps into place, and the screen switches automatically from portrait to landscape mode

Product Specifications

Leaving the laptop behind and staying connected and productive just got easier with the introduction of the Mogul by HTC. Building on the strength of its predecessor, the Sprint PCS Vision Smart Device PPC-6700, the Mogul by HTC offers the same innovative design with slide-out QWERTY keyboard, large touch screen and five-way navigation button but also delivers several enhancements: The Mogul by HTC replicates the familiar Windows PC-based experience and utilizes a suite of software to deliver a variety of key benefits including increased security and added support for HTML email and Microsoft Office Mobile. Broad wireless data functionality gives customers more choices for quick and convenient email, attachments and text messages; view documents; browse the Web; listen to news, music and audio clips; and access corporate applications while on the go. Integrated Wi-Fi for data also allows users to connect in thousands of Sprint-compatible domestic and international Wi-Fi Zones and other public, enterprise and residential Wi-Fi locations. Staying connected on the road is easier with flexible connectivity options like phone-as-modem functionality, which allows customers to use the device with a laptop for high speed data access via the Sprint Mobile Broadband Network.
