| HTC today announced the introduction of the HTC S740 , a slim, compact smartphone that provides a combination of a traditional 12-key phone design with HTC’s sliding QWERTY keyboard for optimal messaging. The HTC S740 will be available across Europe from September 2008.|
"Demand for high-performance, smart, mobile devices continues to see strong growth globally and HTC is well positioned to meet the varying needs of our diverse customer base," commented Dr. Florian Seiche, Vice President of HTC Europe. "The HTC S740 combines a powerful, premium phone with a full slide-out keypad in a compact and sleek form factor. Clearly, one size does not fit all and the S740 will play an important role in expanding our growing portfolio of devices."
From the design of its 12-key keypad and full QWERTY keyboard both input capabilities ensure efficient and accurate typing, as well as support for POP3, IMAP and Exchange push email. Instant messaging (IM) and SMS can also be accessed through the familiar 12-key interface on the front of the phone.
