Sprint today has announced the
HTC TyTN PPC-6800, sporting some bells but not all the whistles. While the CDMA device rocks a 2.0 Mpx camera, microSD slot, and Wi-Fi support (let’s not forget push email, either), it also features the lowly Windows Mobile 5.0 OS and no REV A EV-DO. You can go here for full deets.
Interestingly, Sprint and HTC are marketing the 6800 under the banner â€œleave the laptop behindâ€. This isnâ€™t the first mobile looking to squirm in on laptop turf, if you’re willing to believe our friends in the financial world. Look, I love my BlackBerry/PDA/Smartphone just as much as the next guy, but Iâ€™m not ditching my laptop anytime soon. Mobiles are handy for most situations, but having a 17â€ monitor and a full-sized keyboard is a way more amenable than squinting at a 2â€ screen and thumbing like a madman.
