HTC P3300 (Artemis) Review

‘On The Go Solutions’ have an excellent single-page review of the new HTC P3300 (Artemis).

HTC P3300 (Artemis)

The Artemis is a slim PocketPC mobile device with the added benefit of built in GPS. There have been rumours that the GPS element would be disabled initially as there were some firmware problems discovered late in the manufacturing process that caused a conflict between the GPS and GSM modules. However, this seems to have been just a rumour as the GPS is up and running on the review models.

The P3300 ships with TomTom 6 included in the price.

We also understand that the trackball on the Artemis can be used in ‘mouse mode’ and that this adds a cursor to the PPC screen!

For those of you that can’t be bothered to read the full review, here are the highlights:

The Good: The HTC P3300 has strong curb-appeal, integrated GPS functionality, and sports an innovative and effective jog-wheel navigation tool. The thin sleek design feels fantastic in your palm & your pocket. The bright screen is easy to read, even outdoors, and the excellent quad-band reception and phone integration means that you never have to sacrifice form for functionality.

The Bad: Although the HTC P3300 packs lots of punch, it comes standard with only a 200Mhz OLAP Processor, Bluetooth 1.2 – not 2.0, and no UMTS (3G) support.
