The launch of these devices, hot on the heels of the HTC TyTN and HTC MTeoR in June, underpins HTC's continual leadership in innovation and its commitment to extending the reach and appeal of smart devices to encompass both advanced business users and 'first-time' smartphone and PDA owners. All devices will be available under the HTC brand as well as in customised versions for operator partners.
"We're thrilled to see HTC expanding its portfolio with the HTC S620, P3300, P3600 and S310 smartphones, which further add to HTC's stellar record of innovation on the Windows Mobile platform," Scott Horn, General Manager, Mobile & Embedded Devices Division, Microsoft Corp. "These devices are defining a whole new category of phones with a range of entertainment and productivity options for business users and consumers. With HTC, we're bringing more choice to Windows Mobile customers in a rapidly growing and increasingly diverse mobile market"
"As a preferred navigation partner for HTC going forward, we can collectively offer customers an easy to use, high performance handheld mobile navigation solution so they need never be lost while on the move again," said Eric Pité, vice president, Product Management at TomTom.
