HTC announces 'Herald'
P4350 to you and me
HTC today unveiled its latest smart phone with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, this time driven by a spring-loaded mechanism. Dubbed the P4350, it appears to be the same device phone supplier Dopod announced earlier this month as the C800M.
According to HTC, the P4350 - codenamed 'Herald' - is a quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE device with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.0, but no 3G support. The handset has a 2.8in display, and ships with 128MB of Flash and 64MB of RAM. There's a MicroSD slot for further data storage. It's driven by a 200MHz CPU.
The P4350 weighs 168g and is 1.7cm thick.
HTC said Vodafone has already committed itself to offering the new smart phone in Germany and the Netherlands. The carrier will ship the device in December. ®
