HTC X7510 (Advantage) unboxed

Almost a year ago to the day I unboxed the first version of the HTC Advantage the X7500. It was, in fact, one of the first unbox videos that I recorded.

Now, almost a year and 80+ unbox videos later, we’ve got our hands on the latest HTC Advantage, the X7510. The overall look of the Advantage hasn’t changed much but it’s ‘under the bonnet’ that you’ll see the biggest difference. There’s now a 16GB Hard Drive included and Windows Mobile 6.1 professional for starters.

The other big change is to the keyboard. Earlier versions of the Advantage had proper tactile keys but this new model has been replaced with a flat membrane style keyboard which would look more at home on a ZX81! It does make touch typing something of an issue.

However, Owen is putting together our full review so we’ll see what he makes of it in day-to-day use. The review will be here soon (Won’t it Owen!?) but for now take a look at the unbox video:

Please ignore the fact that I call it the X7501 in the video. It is of course the X7510!
