HTC Snap unboxing and preview video

We first saw the HTC Snap back at the beginning of April, the announcement probably made a number of Windows Mobile Smartphone (Windows Mobile Standard) fans happy as there seem to have been fairly few Smartphone powered handsets released lately.

The HTC Snap looks a lots like the older HTC S620 but I’m not sure if you can call this an update. In reality the Snap is a whole new phone, new CPU, more RAM and ROM, built in GPS etc. but it does take some design queues from the S620.

HTC Snap Description

Designed with a set of features selected to deliver everything you need without overwhelming you with things they don’t, the HTC Snap makes it easier than ever to stay in contact with life’s most important people.

Many people find they are overwhelmed by the amount of email they receive. In response to these issues, HTC’s innovative Inner Circle feature allows HTC Snap users to press a dedicated Inner Circle key to bring emails from a preselected group of people to the top of their inbox, enabling important messages to be acted upon immediately.

With a slim, sleek profile designed to fit perfectly in the hand, the HTC Snap measures less than a half-inch thick (12 mm), yet it can deliver up to eight and a half hours of talk time with the standard battery.

Thanks for my friends at I managed to get my hands on this pre-release version of the HTC Snap. The hardware is final but the ROM build is likely to change before launch so bear that in mind when you look at the unboxing and tour video below.

Sadly we were only able to borrow the HTC Snap for 24 hours, not really enough time to get to know the handset so I’ll hold off reviewing until such time as I can get a retail version to play with. I did previously like the HTC S620 so if you are a fan of the Blackberry style fixed QWERTY design then I suspect you’ll enjoy this handset.

The retail version should be available within the next few weeks but you can pre-order the HTC Snap from today!
