The HTC Universal is the mini Tablet PC-looking next gen Windows Mobile device that sports WiFi, 3G GSM (UTMS), Bluetooth, a QWERTY keyboard, two cameras (one for videoconferencing), a swivel screen, and was the first device announced to run Windows Mobile 5.0. Oh, yeah – it’s a phone and a PDA, too.
Anyway, one of my geek idols, Dale Coffing, got his hands on one, and gives us a signature “first look” at this device, commenting on the size, keyboard, screen, and all sorts of other details. You know, the stuff that makes your geeky parts feel all tingly.
Head over and check out his preview. I’m very much looking forward to this device, but given T-Mobile USA’s sad history of pretty much ignoring all the cool Smartphone and Pocket PC devices that T-Mobile Germany gets, I don’t have my hopes up that this will ever see the light of day on these shores. I’d love to be proven wrong, though.
