HTC rolled out the S740 smartphone today, this is the successor of the S710 and S730 phones. The phone has several improvements and just like its predecessors if features that awesome slide-out QWERTY keyboard.

The S740 runs Windows Mobile 6.1 and has a 2.4" LCD display with QVGA resolution. Unfortunately the S740 doesn't have a touchscreen, that feature is limited to HTC's Touch phones. Other features include 7.2Mbps HSDPA 900/2100MHz, quad-band EDGE, Bluetooth 2.0, WiFi, 3.2 megapixel digicam and GPS.
Taking smartphone communication beyond the practical… the HTC S740 transcends power, usability and simple key-control to deliver the most joyful and intuitive writing experience.

Designed with both beauty and function in mind, the S740’s slender formation of bold angles and distinctive facets perfectly conceals a slide-out keyboard that makes typing-intensive tasks more pleasurable than ever before.

Working in perfect harmony with the S740’s quick messaging tools… writing documents, texts, emailing and instant messaging conversations feel as natural as they do on a notebook, giving you the freedom to communicate the way you enjoy the most.
