The HTC S710/Vox is the first device to be released with Windows Mobile 6 Standard and we had a chance to use one for a week. This Smartphone has a few hidden features that make it a compelling device, but the hinge slider may still need a bit of work.

Nothing really to see here.

A Getting Started CD appears on top, along with manuals and warranty information.

This is actually very helpful for newbies and shows you what you need to get started.

The user manual is very well put together and easy to follow. It is quite thick and covers the entire device functionality.

An a/c adapter, USB cable, battery, device, and headset are included in the box.

The device has a candy bar format and fits well in your hand.

They are about the same size, but the Vox is heavier and feels much more solid and dense.

The Vox and Excalibur (T-Mobile Dash) are both Windows Mobile smartphones running Windows Mobile 6.

Both displays are the same size, resolution, and brightness.

You can see how much wider and larger the Vox keyboard is.

Do you want your keyboard always accessible or is a hidden larger one desired?

The Vox is narrower than the Excalibur/Dash, but it is also thicker and heavier.

My wrist actually started to get a bit sore due to the weight of the Vox.

Both devices have that cool, rubberized casing that makes it easier to grip. The camera is higher resolution on the Vox too.

The Vox has a standard phone keypad in the closed mode.

The blue backlight provides good lighting on the keypad.

The keyboard buttons are well spaced on the Vox.

The blue backlight stays on in the dark and is activated using the light sensor on the front of the keypad.

Directional keys help make navigation a bit easier on the Vox.

These bright orange lights are very helpful in letting you know if you have these optional keys pressed and activated.

The keyboard is functional and well lit.

The recessed power button turns on and off the device and also allows you to switch between different profiles rather quickly.

The recessed camera button activates the 2 megapixel digital camera. The camera is better than others I have seen on Windows Mobile devices, but still not on par with the Nokia devices.

The volume buttons are tough to use since they are recessed and don't have that good of feedback. The voice command activates the integrated voice tag system.

The microSD card slot is covered by a rubber cover and accessible externally.

The SIM card slot is found under the upper half of the device so you no longer have to remove the battery to swap cards.

The battery capacity is adequate and provides you with a day's power for most all situations.

The camera is decent and very responsive. The self portrait mirror can be found adjacent to the camera.
