HTC P3300 Artemis Review

HTC have been the largest manufacturer of smart-phones operating on a mobile Windows platform for years and are leaders in the segment with a huge share of the market. They are the manufacturer who leads the others and dictates the rules by their innovations not only for the Windows Mobile phones but for the other smart-phones, too. This brand is not very popular yet among the people who are not deeply interested in the highest phone class since its products have been offered for years under the names of other brands and carriers only, including Cingular, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile. Among the brands whose lines have been entirely built on HTC phones are i-mate and Qtek.

Expanding its business, HTC now offer quite different models of PocketPC Phones and Smartphones (the two lines of Windows Mobile OS) which results in devices with different purpose. The Pocket PC system is no longer defined as a high-functional business phone only – there are various PPC Phones for various needs. Here we deal with HTC P3300 Artemis only – this is one of the smallest and lightest models including both a mobile LAN (WiFi) and navigation by means of GPS (with inbuilt SirfStar III chip) and an FM radio. These are the three features which, combined in one, distinguish Artemis from the other HTC models and differentiate it in its own class, with P3300 being the first HTC in it with no predecessor. Its direct competitor is Eten X500, another Taiwanese PocketPC phone tested by us earlier. It has an built-in radio, wifi and GPS, too.

The P3300 Artemis set includes the following:
  • AC adapter
  • USB Sync. Cable
  • Stereo wired headset with microphone and FM radio antenna support
  • Stylus
  • User manual, quick start guide & software CD
  • Carrying Pouch
