HTC Advantage X7510
by Mark R
About one year ago, HTC revealed the Advantage, a Windows Mobile-based device that was due to replace the Athena. The Advantage version had some interesting features including a 5-inch VGA display, Intel PXA720 624 MHz processor, 3 megapixel camera, 8GB hard drive, Bluetooth, WiFi, and GPS.
HTC has recently unveiled the newest version of the Advantage, the X7510. They have made some serious upgrades which includes doubling the internal memory (16GB in comparison to the former 8GB). They have also added on TouchFLO, Opera Mobile 9, as well as Google Maps. There is also a rumor that it will contain Windows Mobile 6.1.
It still has some of the basic features of the old Advantage, such as the 5 inch VGA display, tri-band HSDPA, as well as quad-band GSM/GPRS. Not to mention the GPS (a la TomTom Navigator 6, so I’m told), Bluetooth, WiFi, and that lovely magnetic keyboard. I am guessing that magnetic keyboard is its biggest selling point, or at least what gives the Advantage the advantage of uniqueness.
The HTC Advantage X7510 should be available in March of this year, but only in Europe. I’m not certain when it will come overseas, and there is no news of a price, either.
