The HTC Snap is a monoblock PDA with an eye to a similar clientele to the Blackberry. A big feature is the full four-row QWERTY keyboard and trackerball control. Then at 116.5 x 61.5 x 12.0 mm, it is thin, surprisingly light for a PDA (120 g) and overall very impressive: 3.5G/HSDPA for fast internet with Internet Explorer 6, Wi-fi for hotspot and WLAN working, GPS sat nav, Bluetooth for short-range wireless data transfer: the works.
It also offers a particular software feature that HTC calls Inner Circle: no, you don’t have to join the Masons, it simply filters your inbox to show you messages from key selected contacts, integrating seamlessly with the email and contact applications. It will most likely be copied by other phone manufacturers soon.
The Snap has a 2.4-inch TFT-LCD display with LED back light and QVGA resolution. A quad-band phone supporting potential global roaming, it has a 2 megapixel camera, MP3 player and a host of utilities including calendar and speakerphone.
Battery life is rated at around eight hours’ talk time (GSM) or 400 hours on standby from a full charge.
