Today, Microsoft and the English network operator Orange of public present the first phone with Windows operating system. We could try out the smart phone with the code name “Canary” in advance.
The first smart phone at Photionary with Windows operating system coming from Taiwan. The manufacturer HTC is a term only to insiders, because so far its products under other names in the shops were. So, as the XDA/MDA, O2 and T-Mobile just sell is an HTC device. The Compaq iPAQ or the now quite elderly smart phones trium Mondo and Sagem WA 3050/3052 also come from HTC.
With the Canary smart phone, which is marketed under the name “SPV” by Orange, the Taiwanese have the nose even with Microsoft’s newest operating system “Microsoft Windows Powered smart phone” nose.
At a Microsoft press event, we could advance undergo the Canary smart phone to a first test.
Price Breaker From The Far East
220-240 euro will cost the HTC phone in England at the conclusion of a contract – a hit price. That the Microsoft smart phone also made a good first impression, it should not make easier the competition.
The central element of the Canary-phones is Outlook. The mobile phone may request email accounts (POP3/IMAP4 and SMTP), manage contacts, calendar and tasks, as well as voice memos. This data can be synchronized with Outlook on your PC or a Microsoft Exchange / Mobile Information Server. The connection to the computer via infrared, USB or RS232 cable. On the way, according to Microsoft, you can match your smart phone even directly via GPRS connection to the Mobile Information Server.
We have a detailed description of the functions of the “Microsoft Windows powered smart phone” in a photo gallery: “Microsoft Windows Powered smart phone” can put together.
In addition to the WPS core functions the Canary from Taiwan can send multimedia message (MMS) or received. Photos can shoot the users with a camera put on and immediately send via MMS or email. GPRS provides the necessary speed for data transfer (receive maximum 53.6 Kbps & sending 13,4 kbit/s). To make enough pictures or even MP3s and videos on the phone, it offers a SD/multimedia card slot. It supports also the SD input/output (SDIO). So, the cell phone with new functions can be retrofitted with Bluetooth.
Operation and handling
The Canary lies well in the hand. Weigh we couldn’t unfortunately, the colleagues of Pocket PC Italia specify a weight of around 130 grams. According to HTC, the dimensions are approximately 120 x 50 x 23 mm. The buttons are quite crowded, but easy to operate. Contact precisely, the pressure point is better than in the competing Windows smart phone Sendo Z100 ($LAx: already tested: Sendo Z100 |_extern) $).Some getting: the 5-way navigation button. In particular to confirm selected menu items, the users need fine motor skills.
The display (reflective TFT, 176 x 220 pixels, 65,536 colors) measures about five centimeters in the diagonal, the appearance is brilliant. Operating times, HTC indicates a maximum talk time of 3 hours, the device of 80 to 90 hours to hang on in stand-by.
So really much taste we couldn’t yet, but our first impression of the HTC Canary is positive. Most of the functionality will be the same for all Windows phones. However, HTC has the advantage to come first with devices on the market.
Well for example the integration of phone and Outlook contacts we liked. If the phone in stand-by mode, you can press just the digits corresponding to a name, the mobile filter that then contacts according to.
Equally convinced the bright, high-contrast display that remains legible thanks to reflexive technology even in sunshine. The Unit responded to some inputs but quite slow. This problem occurs even if the Sendo Z100, which suggests that it is located on the Windows operating system. For statements about the stability of the Canary phones we could simply won’t try out enough the phone.
HTC is in intensive negotiations with T-Mobile, the mobile could soon come on the market in Germany. We even hope that it is then sold at a similarly attractive price as in England (220 to 240 euros with contract).
