HTC S740 is a non-touch smartphone

HTC S740 is a non-touch smartphone
After the Touch Diamond and Touch Pro, HTC is now bringing the S740 in the same design language, with piano black finish and faceted back, resembling a diamond. In contrast to the first two, the new model is based on Windows Mobile Standard operating system and its screen is not touch sensitive. It is successor of the S730 and has similar form-factor: a side-slider with full QWERTY and a 12-key numeric keypad when closed. Similar to the Touch Pro when you open it, a menu with shortcuts to some applications will appear, but unlike it, the QWERTY is in four instead of five rows. One of the pictures shows that the interface looks similar to the TouchFLO, but it won’t be in tabs as the TF3D. It is still unknown what the Internet browser is, but we hope it is not just the regular Internet Explorer.

The S740 is for the European market, being a quad-band GSM and dual-band 900/2100 MHz UMTS/HSDPA 7.2 Mbps phone. In the U.S., it will be usable as a phone but for data one will use only EDGE or Wi-Fi. It features integrated aGPS, 3.2MP camera without auto focus, 2.4-inch QVGA display, microSD slot, 256MB of internal memory and 256MB RAM. It will be available across Europe in September, but pricing is not announced.

It's not that they release there first, it's because they can sell unlocked phones there, so they are not bounded to rewrite the OS for the carrier. in the US, all phones are locked when they are released.

Ugly though, SE and Samsung designs better.

This is the kind of form factor I would like to see in a "smartphone" from Verizon. I would be nice to see what the dimensions are.

I think it's sleek and cool looking. Can't wait to get my finger prints all over one. When?
