My crystal ball (i.e. industry insiders) tells me that HTC is in the process of prepping up some new phones. Of the lot, the best one without any shadow of doubt has got to be the Sedna P6550. Yes, another queer name from HTC; but what else were you expecting anyways.
This is a PDA with looks so typical of phones in its category. When I first ran through the features of the phone, I was dumbfounded. This phone incorporates almost all the features under the sun that you could ever load in a PDA. Still don’t believe me? How about a credit card reader for one? Yep, you heard it right, I aint talikn about a MMC reader but a credit card reader (although that one is an add-on.)
It runs a Windows Mobile 6 Pro OS. In terms of memory, the phone includes 256 MB ROM, 64 or 128 MB of RAM and 1 GB NAND Flash. With its 3.5-inch QVGA TFT LCD touch-screen, the phone helps you pan around with aplomb. The P6550 supports 3G as well as HSDPA 3.5G.
If you thought this was all, you were wrong. The phone also incorporates a 3 MP camera with Auto Focus. Its features also include fingerprint recognition, Wireless LAN, support for Qualcomm MSM7200 at 400 MHz. Furthermore, it also supports Wireless CDMA tri-band 2100 or 850/1900 MHz, HSDPA 7.2 Mbps and EDGE/ GSM/GPRS, quad-band 850/900/1800/1900 MHz.
For additional connectivity, it includes Bluetooth and Wireless LAN 802.11 b/g. With its in-built GPS, you can rest assured that you would never get lost. It has a 1600 mAh and miniUSB, USB 1.1 and 2 SDIO/MMC slots for your memory expansion. As already mentioned, the phone will feature a credit card reader as an add-on, there’s also a minor feature to extend phone battery (minor huh!). Crystal ball is getting really hazy, all it can show is late ’07 or early ’08 as the possible release date.
