A recent study commissioned by HTC found that 44 percent of US adults are overwhelmed by an abundance of e-mail, and 55 percent prioritize their e-mail communications with less than five people. The HTC Snap is the first device to feature Inner Circle, an innovation designed in response to these statistics. A press of the dedicated Inner Circle button displays e-mails from a user defined set of recipients, allowing you to deal with the things that matter without distraction from the things that don’t.
The HTC Snap is just 12mm thick, with a design that takes cues from the BlackBerry Bold – not that there’s anything wrong with that. Built on Windows Mobile 6.1, the Snap features a full QWERTY keyboard designed for accurate and comfortable typing, 3G (HSPA) connectivity, eight and a half hours of talk time on the standard battery, and will sync your e-mail, calendar and contacts with Microsoft Exchange.
The Snap will be available in select markets starting Q2, with a worldwide rollout in Q3/Q4. An unlocked version supporting 850/1900MHz HSDPA is destined for the US in Summer, under the alias HTC S522.
