HTC X7510 Advantage Review

0. phoneArena posted on 23 Jul 2008, 12:28

Despite the fact that it is equipped with a GSM/3G module and being a product of the leader in this class, HTC X7510 Advantage is more of a 'mobile assistant'. We say mobile, and not pocket, because due to the dimensions of the device, you will at least need a small bag to carry it ...

This weapon of mass destruction is hot, but the price is not. Man if one of these falls off of a truck I will be very happy lol

You have to make do of the x7510 size now , maybe the next replacement htc can shrink this device a bit smaller & thinner though but not too small please - the screen will not look nice anymore then . You can shop for countless of pouches , bags , slip ons , belt holders , sling bags from ebay , i.net & xda forums etc... . You can put it inside your breast pocket but without keyboard . You have to make do or improvise because the size is like that . You can play video , why not ? Kindly read xda forums under htc athena , advantage - you have to find video playback topics from those many many pages . Document performance years ahead ! - of course it will perform less perfect than umpc, netbook , laptops & desktop because it is a pocket pc documents not a full version , i mean i dont compare x7510 with those mentioned above for the capabilities to make a 3g video phone call - can they do just this ? There is differences in a small boy and an adult person - right ? Please compare reasonably like being fair . Sluggish os - yes undenyable on this topic as htc still have a lot of improvement to do on the next model , hey , it is the best subnotebook with phone calls you can find out there . umpc is a mini computer , x7510 is a mini mini computer , so please be generous and forgive htc . Limited function in cotrast with umpc - yes in many ways but can make 3g video phonecall :) Price dont justify - if you are so so , yes it is very expensive , if you are ok , it's dear , if you are rich - you dont mind because it's a mini mini computer with phone , if you are filthy rich - you wont be looking at this comment on the internet . I was hoping it can be better priced so that people like us can buy it at a savings so that we can also buy its many accessories as well, like bags , track ball, usb keyboards , cases , external powered hdd , etc .... Therefore price vs functtionality is not a thorough comparison based on an individual person , some dont like price, some dont like function but price - they dont mind paying , some dont like high price & low function , hey , some prefer it more expensive so others cant buy it ! I think we got to give credit to htc for x7510 , it is a damm good device , many areas to improve for sure as just like any type of gadgets , but we should be contended with its many capabilities that comes with shortcomings too . I enjoyed my x7510 & will stick to it for another 3-4 years & see what is out there from time to time . If you are unsure about what you read so far about x7510 - pls email me : jimmunsw@gmail.com and we will share - ok ? Thanks n regards :)
