BlackBerry who?

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Taiwanese phone maker HTC today formally announced that T-Mobile will ship its S620 BlackBerry-like, QWERTY keyboard equipped handset in the US as the Dash. It's set to ship on 25 October, T-Mobile said.

The Dash is a quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE phone, but it has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on board too. It measures 11.2 x 6.3 x 1.3cm, making it a very slim smart phone indeed. The weight, including battery, is 130g.

The device runs Windows Mobile 5.0 and comes with push email installed - provided, of course, you've got a Microsoft Exchange Server set-up hosting your messages. It also comes bundled with instant messaging tools for AOL, Yahoo! and MSN.

This HTC offering is the first device to feature the company's JOGGR touch-sensitive navigation bar to ease access to your applications. The screen measures 2.4in on the diagonal, with a 320 x 240 resolution and a 65,536-colour capacity. It has a 1.3 megapixel camera, 128MB ROM, 64MB RAM and a Micro SD card slot for memory expansion.

T-Mobile didn't say how much the Dash will cost. ®
