Press Release Summary: HTC Corp unveil the new HTC TyTN II
mobile companion smart device




Press Release Body: HTC Corp, world leading provider of Microsoft
Windows Mobile-based smart devices, has unveiled the HTC TyTN
II. The HTC TyTN II will be launched in partnership with leading
operator partners across Europe, as well as direct under the HTC
brand, and builds on the success of the award-winning first HTC
TyTN (June 2006). Featuring global high speed HSDPA connectivity,
in-built GPS for personal navigation and an innovative adjustable
screen angle, this device is the ultimate mobile companion.

The new HTC TyTN II packs all the power of Windows Mobile 6 into
a unique new form factor, continuing the 10-year heritage of HTC
Corp for innovation in device design. The 2.8-inch colour screen slides
back to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard, then tilts up to position the
screen perfectly for reading and creating emails, using applications, or
even just playing videos and games.

The HTC TyTN II pda phone allows users to get connected in any
country with tri-band UMTS and quad-band EDGE. It boasts unrivalled
worldwide 3.5G high speed internet – HSDPA, at speeds 9 times faster
than 3G – and WiFi 802.11b/g to ensure users can enjoy high-speed
surfing, uploading and downloading while roaming anywhere in the
world.

HTC Home, HTC’s new homescreen, offers easy access to photo
dialling, text messages, calendar entries, emails and contacts, as well
as one touch access to live weather conditions plus four-day forecasts.

Leveraging the functionality of Windows Mobile 6, the HTC TyTN II
mobile device provides a complete suite of business applications
including Word Mobile, Excel Mobile, PowerPoint Mobile, contacts,
calendar, push e-mail, notes, tasks, PDF viewer and more. In addition,
HTC has included further applications such as a business card scanner
and TomTom Navigator 6 (Taster edition) to complement the in-built
GPS.

HTC has also announced the launch of HTCmail, a fully hosted,
secure, and managed email service based on Microsoft Hosted
Exchange. HTCmail will bring the benefits of always-connected
business to mobile professionals. The HTC offering provides seamless
and real-time access to up to five different email accounts, either
personal or work mailboxes, aggregated and instantly delivered to a
mobile device through Outlook 2007. Features include email, contacts
and calendar, enabling users to easily access information and
communications while on the go. HTCmail is compatible with all HTC
devices, and will be rolling out across selected European markets
from September 2007.

“Both HTC TyTN II and HTCmail – are all about fast, easy access on
the move to the kind of features and connectivity previously reserved
for the PC world,” said Florian Seiche, Vice President of HTC
Europe. “This proposition is a perfect match for both mobile
professionals and advanced mobile consumers on the go who can now
benefit from the powerful feature set that the HTC TyTN II offers and
the true high-speed mobile access that many of our leading operator
partners are offering.”
“Combining a broad range of Windows Mobile-powered devices from
HTC with a rich messaging experience delivered through Microsoft
Hosted Exchange is ideal for mobile professionals who demand
enterprise-class communication services with cutting-edge design,”
said Michael O’Hara, general manager, Communications Sector
at Microsoft. “With HTCmail, small to medium enterprises can
benefit from anywhere access to information without the expense or
ongoing comment of on-premise software and IT skills.”

The HTC TyTN II has been designed and developed to enable
business users to take full advantage of the latest high speed data and
multimedia content and applications, and incorporating feedback from
HTC’s operator customers. It will be launched in partnership with
leading operators across Europe from September, including Orange, T-
Mobile, Telefonica Group and Vodafone, as well as direct, under the
HTC brand.
