Wouter at PocketInfo.nl has posted an extensive review on the HTC Star Trek handset, which is shortly to be sold as the i-Mate Smartflip and Qtek 8500. It’s one of our most talked about handsets and we love the look of it. The PocketInfo article (machine translated) has some rather surprising highlights…
– Surprisingly there’s only 64MB ROM, not the 128MB ROM expected. Apparently there’s to be a second release to include 128MB ROM.
– No Mini-USB! The handset appears to have a “flat Mini-USB”, which is a bit non-standard.
– The Micro-SD slot is behind the SIM card, meaning you have to take the SIM card out to get at it.
– The device is very, very fast. Probably the fastest Windows Mobile Smartphone they have worked with.
