HTC P3470 has street smarts

HTC announces the HTC P3470 smartphone at GSMA 2008.

HTC P3470

We were hoping to hear some news from HTC, and the device manufacturer did indeed have a couple of announcements at GSMA. The first is the HTC 3470. The company is touting it as the affordable option for those looking for a smartphone with built-in GPS. Uhh, I'm not sure what HTC's definition of affordable is, but with a price tag of 449 euros ($652 U.S.), I wouldn't exactly call it a bargain. It comes preloaded with TomTom Navigator 6 software, so along with the assisted GPS, users will be able to get turn-by-turn directions, points of interest, and more. The Windows Mobile 6 smartphone also has a 2.8-inch touchscreen, a 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.0, and 256MB of flash memory. The HTC P3470 will launch in the United Kingdom, France, Spain, and the Netherlands later this month with Orange.
