HTC reveals new dual keyboard phone

HTC have announced details of a new device for their Smartphone range, the HTC S740. The new device will replace the popular S730 and boasts styling similar to the Diamond Touch and Touch Pro.

The HTC S740 still retains one feature from the S730; the dual keyboards, a numerical keyboard on the front and a slide-out full QWERTY keyboard in the middle. The S740 will also feature Wi-Fi and HSPDA, a 3.2 megapixel camera and Bluetooth connection.

Other additions include a 2.4 inch LCD display, GPS/A-GPS for navigation and a microSD card slot for storing files. All of these features, plus the QWERTY keyboard inside a phone that is only slightly bigger than the HTC Diamond Touch will be a plus point for some.

The dual keyboard configuration and the lack of a touchscreen might put some people off, but those who want the functionality of a standard phone coupled with being able to write emails easily it’ll be a bonus.

The HTC S740 is expected out sometime in the coming months, there is no word on networks or tariffs at the moment.
