The best Smartphone ever?

I love the HTC S620 (aka TMO Dash or Excalibur). It's still not quite taken over my QTEK 8500 as my primary phone but it's not far off and I may make the change this week. Why?

  • It's a Smartphone with a keyboard. Freaked me out for a while but the combo of the Windows Mobile Smartphone OS and the keyboard just works. One handed too!
  • The screen is beautiful. Not quite as good as my Vaio X-Black screen but not far off.
  • The keyboard is great and nice touches like not having to switch to numeric mode when typing in my key lock code show a nice attention to detail.
  • The JOGGR thumb pad is just genius when it comes to scroller innovation
  • Battery life is solid
  • WiFi, Bluetooth and the camera. All good quality and good UI.
  • Finally, the build quality. A bit like my Zune people just pick it up and don't want to put it down. It has a lovely smooth rubber like finish and feels solid...and it's soooo thin.

Don't take my word for it though. Cali Lewis of Geek Brief TV gave it a big thumbs up over 3 Blackberry units and the Sidekick.

Hooked up to our Exchange Server 2007 direct push email service, this thing is pretty close to perfect.

    not sure what you mean by full text Tim - I'll have a poke around but don't have much control over the server so may come unstuck!

    I've been playing around with this also and it's fantastic. For anyone out there familiar with using Blackberry's you'll be impressed with the interface and design.
