I’ll share my own thoughts on this amazing new phone from HTC/T-Mobile in a few days, but reviews started trickling in from Engadget and Gizmodo today, and at least one of them is a must-read. I’ve felt BlackBerry was living on borrowed time when the legal snafu happened last year, and while the Pearl is hands-down a solid device, I see the juggernaut that is Microsoft (via Windows Mobile) coming down the mountain.
The HTC Dash (aka the Excalibur) is basically a smaller, nicer, and in almost every way better version of the Motorola Q phone. The Q has the edge by using EVDO instead of edge services for Internet connectivity, but the Dash wins in every other category. It’s coming soon, it’s under $200, and you’re gonna love it. And if they have a UMTS or EVDO version next year, I’m gonna adopt one myself.
By the way, it’s a lot better looking in person, it might be the best-looking, least-photogenic phone I’ve ever seen.
