So close yet so far...

I've been on a quest for a new handset for a while now (my current phone is the Qtek S100 - a fine beast but I want more current functionality) and got quite excited when I saw this baby, the HTC P4350, announced today. It's like the TyTN but slimmer, which is a big plus.

I've been on a quest for a new handset for a while now (my current phone is the Qtek S100 - a fine beast but I want more current functionality) and got quite excited when I saw this baby, the HTC P4350, announced today. It's like the TyTN but slimmer, which is a big plus. However, it has no 3G/HSDPA, which is a big minus.

I haven't actually ever owned a 3G-capable phone - I never saw the point - but now that HSDPA is starting to roll out I reckon I'll skip those first stages and go straight to the souped-up version. For example, the HTC P3600, also coming shortly, looks a lot like the phone I already have but it has all the bells and whistles you'd expect from a 2006/7 handset (Wi-Fi, HSDPA etc). No keyboard though, but I think if I had to wait for the utterly perfect handset I'd be here for a very long time yet...
