HTC Launches New Diamond Variant – S740

After the HTC Touch Diamond and the HTC Touch Pro which is merely an extension of the former with a QWERTY keypad, the company has now announced the introduction of the HTC S740. This handset appears to be another variation of the form factor of the Touch Pro. The difference is that the S740 has been designed to offer users the comfort of a touch screen, the normal 12-key phone design and a slide out QWERTY keyboard.

“Demand for high-performance, smart, mobile devices continue to see strong growth globally and HTC is well positioned to meet the varying needs of our diverse customer base,” said Dr. Florian Seiche, Vice President of HTC Europe. “The HTC S740 combines a powerful, premium phone with a full slide-out keypad in a compact and sleek form factor. Clearly, one size does not fit all and the S740 will play an important role in expanding our growing portfolio of devices.”

The S740 has a 2.4 inch QVGA display with a 240 x 320 pixel resolution and 65k colors (not a touch screen). With regards to connectivity it supports 3G with HSDPA speeds, Wi-Fi, EDGE/GPRS, Bluetooth with an A2DP profile and of course USB v2.0. Memory can be extended using microSD cards. It also has integrated GPS with A-GPS support using Google maps and a 3.2MP camera (non auto-focus). The S740 runs on Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional. Other features include a media player and an FM radio.

The handset will be available across Europe from September 2008 but there’s no pricing yet.
