When you say it has 3g does that mean HSDPA or just UMTS? If this had hsdpa it would be my dream device!!
Almost for sure HSDPA. The chip set supports it and I see no reason for HTC to disable it. The GPS thing is a little tricky. It's also supported by the chip set, but I could see HTC disabling it and leaving out the required antenna, if they want to keep the Kaiser/TyTN II the only model with GPS (along with the strictly GPS-focused devices, of course) and hence keep it as their superior top model. Of course, this would mainly be the case with the Touch Slide, as the S730 could be their top smartphone (without touch screen) and hence not compete directly with the Kaiser. I guess' we'll know soon enough
Actually, looking at the picture with the S730 and Touch Slide side by side makes me want the Touch Slide more. I've tried the S710 which should be the same size as the S730, and it was pretty small. The only downsize was the thickness, and the Touch Slide seems to have approximately the same footprint as S710/S730 but is thinner and since I never don't really need a full qwerty keyboard, the choice should be simple - therefore I would be a little mad at HTC if GPS is in the S730 but not the Touch Slide...
