Sleek and Sophisticated HTC S743 Comes to the US Market

January 6, 2009

BELLEVUE, Wash., Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ — HTC Corporation, a global leader
in mobile design and innovation, today unveiled the HTC S743, a compelling
fusion of style and power. By combining a traditional 12-key keypad design
with a full slide-out QWERTY keyboard, the HTC S743 was created to bring the
muscle of Windows(R) Mobile 6.1 to customers who prefer a more traditional
user interface. The HTC S743, which supports high-speed HSDPA (850/1900 MHz)
networks, will be available through select retail outlets, including dell.com
and cdw.com, during the first quarter of 2009.

“While others are content focusing on a single design or user interface,
HTC is dedicated to bringing the benefits of mobile convergence to all
consumers, without forcing them to use a device that doesn’t truly fit their
lifestyle,” said Jason Mackenzie, vice president of HTC America. “The HTC
S743, which packs high-design and high-performance into a trim 4.9 ounce
package, is a great example of HTC’s rejection of a ‘one-size-fits-all’

Featuring the same ‘faceted’ design first implemented in the highly
popular HTC Touch Diamond(TM), the HTC S743 was also engineered to deliver an
outstanding voice experience. At a mere 1.7 inches wide, the HTC S743 fits
comfortably into the palm of the hand, allowing for ergonomic and comfortable
voice calls. Despite its narrow profile, the HTC S743 still boasts a large and
bright 2.4 inch QVGA display for reading and responding to e-mail and SMS or
accessing the Internet.

With its full QWERTY keyboard, the HTC S743 is able to take advantage of
its full suite of messaging options. As a Windows Mobile 6.1 based device, the
HTC S743 interfaces seamlessly with Microsoft Exchange as well as personal
POP3 and IMAP4 email protocols. Along with SMS and MMS messaging, support for
a number of instant messaging standards is included with the HTC S743, making
it fast and easy to stay in touch with friends and family while on the go.

The HTC S743 marks the latest HTC device to be made available through
independent channels in the US. Underscoring its commitment to delivering
choice to the smartphone market, US consumers can choose from unique HTC
devices including the GSM variant of the HTC Touch Diamond and the HTC Touch
Dual(TM) through a number of electronics retailers including national
retailers, independent wireless outlets and online e-tailers such as dell.com
and cdw.com.
