HTC could be onto a winner with its S620 Windows Mobile handset. The device is slim and lightweight, yet manages to squeeze in a qwerty keypad, making it easier to tap out text messages and emails. It also has a relatively large screen, which is easier to read than the tiny displays of candy-bar style handsets.
The device resembles a BlackBerry somewhat, but is actually smaller and lighter. I've been using it for a few days now, and it also seems to have a better battery life than is often the case with other Windows Mobile handsets.
On the downside, the S620 is a GPRS/EDGE phone, and so does not have 3G network support. But it does have Wi-Fi, and I found it simple to configure for my home WLAN. It is also smart enough to automatically use Wi-Fi for faster web browsing, if this connection is available.
On first impressions, this looks like one of the most desirable handsets I've seen so far, combining the low weight of a candy-bar phone with the features you would otherwise expect in a larger and heavier wireless device. Look out for a full review of the HTC S620 in future.
