Default A Look at the HTC Universal

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.eprice.com.tw/news/?news_id=2913' target='_blank'>http://www.eprice.com.tw/news/?news_id=2913</a><br /><br /></div><img src="http://www.pocketpcthoughts.com/images/web/2003/wey-20050528-Universal.jpg" /><br /><br />I sort of have a thing for 'black', and this black HTC Universal tickles my taste buds in more ways than one. Equipped with an Intel XScale 520MHz processor, 128MB RAM, 96MB ROM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, IR, an SD/MMC slot, WCDMA/GPRS/GSM - Tri-Band 900MHz/1800MHz/1900MHz, and a 65K VGA screen, the HTC Universal was the first official Windows Mobile 5.0 device to be announced in the market. ePrice Taiwan takes a look at it, so if you're interested, head over there to get the full lowdown. Also, here's a <a href="http://babelfish.altavista.com/babelfish/trurl_pagecontent?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.eprice.com.tw%2Fnews%2F%3Fnews_id%3D2913&lp=zt_en">Babel Fish translation</a> if you can't read Chinese.

There you have it: 96MB ROM, 128MB RAM. Plenty. That thing looks pretty sick to me. I even like it in black.

That's the problem with Chinese to English online translation services. I assure you it all makes perfect sense when read in the native tongue.

Agreed. It really is quite impressive. It seems like the perfect device for all those who wanted VGA on their PPCPE.

HTC expects global distribution in the second half of this year with European, Asian and North American mobile operators. Off the top of my head, I can't place an exact date or price tag to it, but when more information pours in, we'll let you know.

Edit: I forgot to mention that T-Mobile Germany expect it to be available in Summer 2005, but I'm not sure what other mobile operators have planned at this stage.
