HTC Snap / S522 QWERTY smartphone announced

HTC Snap is a brand new Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard smartphone that was announced today by HTC at CTIA Wireless 2009 (where else?).

The device measures only 12 millimeters in thickness and it looks like that HTC Maple leaked a while back.

Its feature-set is by no means impressive, but that’s because HTC will probably launch it with a rather affordable price tag.

The strong points of HTC Snap seem to be its full QWERTY keyboard, the HSDPA connectivity, the 1,500 mAh battery and the new Inner Circle feature – which, according to HTC, “makes it easy for users to prioritize messages from the most important people in their lives at the press of a button.”

  • Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth
  • 2MP camera
  • 528MHz Qualcomm CPU
  • 256MB of ROM and 128MB of RAM

The HTC Snap will be available starting the second quarter of the year.

Good news for North America: the smartphone will surely be released there as well, unlocked and called HTC S522.
