HTC S740 WM6.1 Smartphone Review

 

After the runaway success of the Touch HD , HTC offered us another smartphone to try out. If the HD was all about superlative media, the HTC S740 takes us back to smartphone basics: no touchscreen, Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard, and a hardware QWERTY...

HTC S740 Review

 

Recently, the market has been flooded with devices running on the Windows Mobile Professional operating system. Of course there's nothing wrong with that, but let's not forget the Windows Mobile Standard smartphones, such as the HTC S740.

Review: The HTC S740 (Rose) Windows Mobile Standard Phone

 

The last time I used a non-touch screen version of Windows Mobile was the Motorola Q.  It ran Windows Mobile 5, and I quickly learned that the interface was nothing short of terrible.  That phone lasted about a week before I declared the phone...

I am not surprised that we agreed at all.  Most of the important user interface features, I absolutely loved: the main menu, T9 keypad, and slide out keyboard.  I found many of the controls to be intuitive and easy to reach.  The parts I did not like...

HTC S740/S743 Windows Mobile Standard Phone on ClintonFitch[Dot]com

 

I know a few people that have picked up the HTC S740 recently and they all rave about it, and let's face it, a lot of WinMo touch screen phone users lament those unprecedented calls, and data downloads mysteriously triggered whilst our devices are...

Clinton’s conclusion, well echoes the sentiments I've been encountering of this wonderful phone.

Review: Video review of the HTC S740/S743

 

Like its recently announced twin, the S743, HTC's S740 is a Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard edition smartphone with a regular alphanumeric keypad as well as a full QWERTY keyboard. Learn more about this solid smartphone in our video review.

But when you sum up all the hits and misses in the S740 (and S743), it seems clear that the phone is still a real winner.

HTC S740 Review

 

This review covers the HTC S740, a European device which is being sold unlocked. This GSM phone is virtually identical to the upcoming HTC S743, which will in essence be the U.S. version of the same model. The S740 doesn't support the N. American 3G...

The S740 certainly deserves a closer look, as does the just-announced S743, which is quite similar to this phone. This is true especially if you want the option of having a full QWERTY keyboard but don't plan to do an excessive amount of data entry
