3GSM: HTC X7500, S710 & P3350

While Samsung has proved a notable exception, the majority of releases from major manufacturers at this year’s 3GSM have been a let down. Sadly, HTC continues the theme.

As such there is nothing at all wrong with the X7500 (top), S710 (below, left) and P3350 (below, right) other than one thing: we’ve seen them all before.

The X7500 – while the highlight of the trio – is the biggest example of this. Previously codenamed the HTC ‘Athena’, it has since shown up on T-Mobile as the Ameo, so while the specification may be cutting edge (624MHz CPU, 5in VGA display, 8GB HDD, HSDAP, GPS, 3MP camera) it’s hardly out of the blue.

The ‘S710’ is a similar story: previously codenamed the ‘Vox’, it has been turning up on blogs for nearly a month. Not that there is anything wrong with the device itself since it is possibly the most phone-like thumbboard slider yet and packs in a 201MHz OMAP 850 CPU, 64MB RAM, a 2.4in 240 x 320 screen, EDGE and wireless b/g. Couple this with up to seven hours talk time and Windows Mobile 6 installed as default and it looks great:… just unsurprising.

Finally we have the P3350 which is simply a P3300 (previously Artemis) without the integrated GPS. Like the S710 has a 201MHz CPU, 64MB RAM and EDGE plus a larger 2.8in screen. On the downside there’s no WiFi and the battery life is good for a more typical four hours of talk time.

All three devices are set to appear in early Q2 and I’m sure they’ll make the world a better place – but only slightly.
