It’s been a long time since HTC had a Windows Mobile Standard device. The Excalibur is a great device for it’s time, but it lacks many of the more popular features found on today’s Standard edition devices. Earlier this year, HTC announced an all new Standard edition phone to replace the Excalibur and it’s finally starting to ship. You can find this device in many of the popular online mobile retail outlets as well as on various carrier networks.
The question is, does HTC still have it? Is this new Standard edition device enough to win back the market which they once owned? Or does Samsung and Motorola (to a lesser degree) still have the market on messenger devices cornered? The Excalibur was my device of choice for a short time. I then switched to Samsung’s BlackJack line of devices and haven’t looked back because HTC just didn’t have the features that I was looking for.
All that should be changing with the release of HTC’s Snap smartphone. Remo Knops from Mobility Minded has got his hands on the new Snap smartphone and posted a detailed review of the device. Take a chance to read his review and let us know your thoughts on the Snap. Is this too little too late from HTC or is it just what the doctor ordered?
