HTC announced the European launch of the HTC P3470, the latest member of the HTC product portfolio. Combining a lightweight design, large screen, sat-nav software and strong battery life, the P3470 sets a new standard in affordable smartphone, GPS-based devices.

The HTC P3470 features a TI OMAP 850, 200MHz chipset, 256 MB flash, 128 MB RAM, and a 2 megapixel camera with macro focus. The operating system is Windows Mobile 6 Professional. It works in GSM/GPRS/EDGE: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz networks.
Smart, simple and easy to use, TomTom Navigator 6 is the best sat-nav solution for your PDA or mobile phone. The intuitive interface, crystal clear instructions and easy call handling make it the ideal navigation partner for the P3470. The touch interface and 2.8in QVGA flat touch screen ensure the AGPS-enabled sat-nav is easy to use, and the HTC P3470 is truly mobile thanks to the long battery life.
