Snapshot: HTC TyTN


Taiwanese ODM extraordinaire HTC is now selling devices under their own HTC brand, instead of relying solely on carriers and 3rd party companies for sales. The triband UMTS/HSDPA TyTN is one of their two initial HTC branded offerings.

The HTC TyTN 3G Microsoft ® Windows Mobile ® 5.0 based Pocket PC phone, with its compact size and ultimate connectivity, is truly the complete mobile office solution.

HTC TyTN 3G smartphone - Pocket-lint


HTC has created it's first own brand phone, breaking away from supporting T-Mobile O2. The company has started its re-branding efforts with two new phones;

HTC TyTN Review


We have always assumed the TyTN would be a fairly large device as the press images always make a device look much larger than it is. But once you get your hands on one you will find it relatively small, measuring 112.5 x 58 x 21.95 and blessed with a...
