HTC Snap(TM) Makes Staying in Touch With More People Less Complicated
HTC's newest QWERTY smartphone features 'Inner Circle' to automatically prioritize e-mail from life's most important people
A recent study conducted by Harris Interactive(R) and commissioned by HTC* found that 44 percent of U.S. adults are often overwhelmed by the amount of e-mail they receive, and over half (55 percent) of U.S. adults prioritize five or fewer people with whom they communicate via e-mail. In response to these issues, HTC's innovative Inner Circle feature allows HTC Snap users to press a dedicated Inner Circle key to bring e-mails from a preselected group of people to the top of their inbox, enabling important messages to be acted upon immediately.
"Recognizing that people are being overwhelmed by an avalanche of e-mail, the HTC Snap introduces Inner Circle, an HTC innovation that makes it easy for people to prioritize messages from the most important people in their lives at the press of a button," said
With a slim, sleek profile designed to fit perfectly in the hand, the HTC Snap measures less than a half-inch thick (12 mm), yet it can deliver up to eight and a half hours of talk time with the standard 1500mAh battery. The full QWERTY keyboard is ergonomically designed with extra-large domed keys and responsive tactile feedback to make typing e-mail and text messages fast, accurate and comfortable. High-speed 3G HSPA connectivity makes it quick and easy to send pictures to friends, access favorite social networking sites, or download large files while on the go.
The HTC Snap is powerful enough for experienced business users looking for an affordable, straightforward choice for remotely synchronizing e-mail, calendar and contacts with their Microsoft Exchange server. However, the flexible Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard platform allows the HTC Snap to also be simple enough for first-time smartphone users wanting to keep their family life organized.
The HTC Snap is expected to be available in select channels during the second quarter of 2009, rolling out in markets around the world throughout the second half of the year. In addition, an unlocked version supporting HSDPA at 850/1900MHz for the U.S. market will be made available under the name HTC S522 during the summer.
