HTC calls two “new” 3G WinMo smartphones their own

I guess High-Tech Computer (HTC) of Taiwan is tired of having people pick up their hot handsets rebadged as Dopods, i-mates, and Qteks. They want to take a little more direct route into the marketplace and sell their own phones under the HTC banner. As such, HTC has taken two of their most popular form factors and is re-releasing the hot handsets with renewed vigour.

First up is the HTC TyTN (pronounced “titan”?), which we already know as the Hermes. This tri-band smartphone packs in a long list of acronyms, including 3G UMTS, standard GSM and GPRS, EDGE, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth, as well as mini-USB for good measure. Running on Windows Mobile 5.0, the TyTN tackles internet browsing, Direct Push email, and your standard suite of Microsoft Office apps without skipping a beat. Other key features include a 2.8-inch touchscreen display, slide-out QWERTY keyboard, microSD expansion, an integrated 2 megapixel picture taker, and a secondary cam for video telephony.

The HTC MTeor, better known as the Breeze, is being billed as the “world’s first 3G Windows Mobile 5.0 Smartphone.” You’ll get the same Direct Push email found on the TyTN, as well as a suite of document viewers. No mobile editing though, which is a bit of a downer. The 2.2-inch TFT display is adequate, as is the 1.3 megapixel camera.

Look for the HTC TyTN and MTeor to hit the streets of Europe late next month.
