HTC releases first Windows Mobile 3G phones

By Justin Mann on
The first set of Windows mobile phones based around the tri-band 3G model are now available from HTC. Released this week, HTC is not giving these to resellers but rather directly launching the products, and also has an assortment of accessories designed and ready for the phones. Among other things, the new phones fully support GSM, GPRS and EDGE, along with WiFi and BlueTooth support, making them one of the most “connected” devices you can snag. The Windows mobile varieties have Office with them and support for Internet browsing, calendaring and email, making them almost a tiny laptop.

They won't be available worldwide immediately, with a release in Europe slated for July. With the immense popularity of smartphone-like devices, there's going to be massive competition for quite a while. No word on how HTC plans to price these, but with all the features they support they will probably be costly at first.
