HTC gives you Wings! Well, not you, me. Well, HTC haven't given it to me, but it's theirs indirectly. Well, it's not GIVEN to me either. Oh, heck, you know what i'm getting at... friendly Mr. Postman delivered the fine specimen below to me this morning, and here's your chance to grill me on the device prior to a forthcoming review!

The device is in (trick) retail packaging with a near retail ROM, so I should be able to answer most questions!

Fire away!

;)

PS Yes, that is our first look at the HTC Home homescreen on a Smartphone!

Yes and no. Yes, it connects to the GPS receiver, no, so far, I can't see more than 2 satellites ;)

Here's a couple of questions:

- Will the phone work with AT&T? I assume the answer is yes but would like someone to confirm that all the functionality including voice / data / voicemail / text, etc works correctly.

- Will the Garmin Mobile for Smartphones product work with this phone?

- Can this phone make video calls?

- How's the quality of watching Slingbox with the phone?

- Where can I buy this phone? www.mobileplanet.com has it listed but keeps pushing out their availability date.

Thanks! Daniel

- Yes, it will work with AT&T

- Kinda. I haven't got the built in GPS working properly, but Garmin Mobile XT runs on it!

- Yes, it can make video calls.

- Is there a Smartphone Slingplayer?

- Nowhere yet!

Please tell me this phone is noticeably faster than the S710 and it will be a definate sale for me, GPS or no GPS!

And i would also like to know about the slingbox usage. Yes there is a smartphone player, think there's a trial on the slingbox site.

HTC have confirmed it does, but it's not supported. I think I know why now, unless my unit is faulty of course!

What is the point of having GPS if it is not supported? With Satnav and Windows Live it's what everyone wants ;)

Like the look of this, a lot! Looks like a PPC at first glance

Can you take some piccies of it next to the Kaiser? In particular to show the thickness of it

Cheers
