HTC and the Future of hand held one device fits all

HTC for retailers is a considerably new name, but for OEM is well known.
HTC is hitting the retail market with new devices that are defining a new era of portable devices that can do anything you may imagine.
I have been through HTC Advantage X7501, it is a super device,unbelievable fast , even was able to open MS-Office 2007 word document - LOL-
The HTC Advantage runs Windows Mobile 6, and glad to tell that there are Ubuntu ports for this device, so you can buy it and through the installed windows and install Ubuntu.
There is another model that runs Vista Business edition -;))))))))))!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I would rate HTC line as a Mini-Laptop, I find it better and faster than any other wareable computer I have been through or experienced.

HTC Advantage comes with a neet keyboard that you use it to type and to position the HTC advantage in a comfort position for reading and writing and they are using magnet to attach the tiny keyboard to the HTC Advantage.
still you can use the Keyboard as a screen cover if you are not using the leather carrying case
It has a single cable that can virtually be used for anything (VGA,Composite Vide,Audio,USB).
It has internal flash based storage of 8GB, there is another model that has 30GB flash based storage.
We were able to plug a 4GB flash pen with no pain, read and writes were amazingly fast, although that we did not find a unmount/eject all over but it worked perfectly.
This New device comes in a very sleek package.
