HTC, often a maker of Windows Mobile devices for American cellular carriers, sometimes slips an unlocked, HTC brand specific phone into the U.S. market. Such is the case with the newly announced HTC S743, which will be available sometime in the first quarter of the year.
The HTC S743 combines a 12-keypad design with a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard. It runs Windows Mobile 6.1 and supports high-speed HSDPA (850/1900 MHz) networks. It measures around 1.7-inches wide, sporting a 2.4-inch QVGA display.
Features of this HTC smartphone include Microsoft Exchange support, support for POP3 and IMAP4 email, SMS/MMS messaging and a weight of 4.9 ounces. It should work with most major cellular carriers domestically and abroad.
