HTC S740 gets priced up

Written by test

One very expensive Smartphone

The price of HTC's recently launched S740 Smartphone has been revealed by Expansys. as they have the handset up for pre-order and it's not cheap at £359.99 (€448/$633) without a contract. This puts it at £30 (€37/$53) more than the Nokia E71, which has received rave reviews and we think it'll have a tough time competing at this price point.

When you then have to take into consideration that it's taller, a fair bit chubbier, although not quite as wide and heavier, then it seems like this Windows Mobile 6.1 standard device is going to have a tough time convincing business users that are looking for an email device that isn't a Blackberry to go for it.

The S740 does have a pretty solid feature set with a slide out QWERTY keyboard, a 528MHz Qualcomm processor, 256MB of RAM and ROM, support for up to 7.2Mbit HSDPA, WiFi 802.11b/g, Bluetooth 2.0, GPS and a 3.2 megapixel camera.

Although, once the network providers starts subsiding this handset it might become popular, as we'd expect it to go for less than the Nokia E71, as high-end Nokia handsets doesn't tend to get as much of a discount as HTC devices due to their popularity.
