HTC P4350 (aka HTC Herald) review

Paul over at MoDaCo has just published his review of the HTC P4350 (aka HTC Herald).

Everyone seems to be talking about the Herald and many seem to be excited about the idea of a thinner device with a keyboard or an updated version of the K-Jam. However, Paul seems to be rather disapointed with the P4350.

“Think of the Herald in one of two ways. It’s either a slimmed down and slightly tweaked Wizard, or it’s a Prophet (i-mate JAMin, SPV M600) with a slide out keyboard without gaining any additional size.”

“The first point worthy of note is the weight! At a hefty 174g on our scales (14g more than the quoted weight), it’s substantial. Small it may be, but light it ain’t By comparison, the Prophet tips the scales at 148g, the Wizard a closer 169g. It’s the heavy weight compared with the diminuitive size that is so strange… one can only assume the solid keyboard mechanism is to blame.”
