HTC Ozone

The HTC Ozone is Verizon Wireless' version of the HTC Snap. The Windows Mobile smartphone is available now for just $49.99 with a two-year contract, making it quite the deal compared to its T-Mobile and Sprint counterparts.

Global messaging smartphone

With its full QWERTY keyboard, it's no surprise the Ozone is geared toward messaging. However, we're disappointed that HTC's Inner Circle feature (for better e-mail management) was not included.

Other highlights of the phone include world roaming capabilities, Wi-Fi, GPS, and 3G support.

Ozone's display

The Ozone features a 2.4-inch QVGA display that shows 64,000 colors at a 320x240-pixel resolution. It's bright and clear, though not as sharp or as large as we'd like.

Pocket friendly

The HTC Ozone measures 4.5 inches tall by 2.5 inches wide by 0.5 inch thick and weighs 3.7 ounces, making for a pretty sleek and light device.

Navigation controls

We prefer the navigation controls of the T-Mobile Dash 3G, but the Ozone's full QWERTY keyboard is pretty easy use and includes shortcuts to your in-box and communication manager.

Where's the standard jack?

Unfortunately, like HTC's other smartphones, the Ozone doesn't come equipped with a standard 3.5mm headphone jack. However, an audio adapter is included in the sale package so you can still use your favorite headphones/earbuds with the smartphone. The mini USB port also doubles as the power connector.

The Ozone's camera

Like the HTC Snap and T-Mobile Dash 3G, the Ozone features a 2-megapixel camera on back that can shoot photos in five resolutions and record video.

Amber glow

We were disappointed with picture quality because an orange/yellowish hue ruined the overall image.
