What would be the best navigation software for a device like this (since TomTom is no option)?

And while I am at it: is there a better browser available than IE, something like Opera but optimized for Smartphone?

Not sure about Smartphone Satnav atm, but Opera Mini (admittedly while being a java app) is pretty damned good!

Anyone notice anything strange with the backlight on the S740 keyboard. It wont come on when you move the joystick! When you press the top buttons only lights for them light up and when you press a number only the numbers light up. Most inconvenient in the darkness. Would love to know who designed this and if there is way to make whole keypad light by moving circular joystick. Also no ridges on keyboard to give you any idea which key you may be pressing in darkness!!!!!

Heres response from HTC

you wanted to find away to adjust the back light on the handset. This is something that can not be done, we can not support editing the registry with customers. Also the backlight has not been designed to be changed.

Just my tuppence worth: I have an Orange SPV C500 and the S740 is pretty much the device I want. Without the QWERTY keyboard. I think that's going to stop me buying it, and ideally I'd like it to be touch-screen.

No, but the on-screen one is excellent (coming from the bloke who has been a keyboard advocate for years)

The Diamond doesn't have the phone keyboard, does it? :rolleyes:

No sorry, I meant it needs to have a phone-keypad, i.e. hardware 1-9 buttons!

Yea to be honest I'd be fine if it didn't have a keyboard... though I do find the S710 one pretty handy at times. I just want a new phone with the same quaility as the other new devices but without Windows Mobile Professional.

Next question is - when can I get it on Orange?
