MEDC 2007 Europe - the first public presentation of HTC Kaiser

.'

At MEDC 2007 Europe, in the so called ''Microsoft Device Bar'' that consists essentially of a table with some devices powered by Windows Mobile, one can notice HTC Kaiser Pocket PC phone.

HTC Kaiser is a replacement of popular HTC Hermes and that additionally, on top of features of HTC Hermes, offers smaller size, tilted QWERTY keyboard, built-in GPS and 3 megapixel camera!

HTC Kaiser build in fast processor, HSDPA capability, video calling, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc. It is unclear yet whether the camera on the back of this phone supports auto-focus or not, and whether HSDPA supported is 7.2 MB/s or 3.6 MB/s and whether HSUPA indeed is supported, display of this phone is only QVGA (320x240 pixels) and the built-in GPS is of ''assisted GPS'' type, what means: not so sensitive as the SiRF STAR III chipset. In any case HTC Kaiser offers faster HSDPA speeds, what combined with Windows Mobile 6, makes it an ideal wireless modem - because thanks to the ''Internet sharing'' feature of Windows Mobile 6 one can use each phone powered by this OS as a wireless modem without the need to install anything additional in your PC (through Bluetooth and even through regular USB).
