Sprint users can now rejoice with the launch of the new Windows Mobile 6 phone from HTC—the Mogul. The Mogul joins the family of HTC devices based on the newer class of phones that include the AT&T 8525 and the T-Mobile Wing. The Mogul has the distinction of being the first CDMA version of this class in the U.S. and replaces the aging PPC-6700.
The Mogul sports the updated Windows Mobile 6 Professional Edition operating system as does the T-Mobile Wing. The AT&T 8525 is due to have an upgrade to WM6 by the end of July. Some of the high points of WM6 include tighter integration with corporate email, HTML email ability, an updated interface, Windows Live Search and numerous minor updates to the operating system.
One nice touch the Mogul has is a slider switch on the side to quickly activate its WiFi b/g option. Sprint has graciously included a 512MB MicroSD card with the Mogul to help store your stuff. Like other HTC phones, the memory card slot is limited to a 2GB maximum capacity.
Other features of the Mogul are: a convenient scroll wheel, 2 mega-pixel camera with flash and video recording, a speedy 400MHz processor, generous 256MB of memory, High speed EV-DO support, slide out keyboard, voice recognition software, Microsoft Office and much more.
The Sprint Mogul is available now for 299.99 after rebate and a two year commitment.
