Today HTC announced a true successor to its Dash smartphone in the new HTC Snap. The Snap is a bar-style phone running Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard with a full, physical QWERTY keyboard. HTC has replaced the D-pad on the Dash with a track ball on the Snap. Its stand-out feature is a new email filtering program called Inner Circle. Snap users all several close contacts to their Inner Circle. When they press the dedicated Inner Circle button on the keyboard, it opens a filtered email inbox showing messages received only from those contacts that are part of the inner circle. The Snap has quad-band GSM/EDGE and has two HSDPA variants, including 850/1900MHz. It has a 2 megapixel camera with video capture, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, GPS, and Wi-Fi. The Snap also supports microSDHC cards. HTC didn't announced a price point or exact availability.

I loved my Dash

I used my Dash for almost 2 years (a record for me) and switched to a G1 but the Snap might give me a reason to get ATandT for data only and keep Tmobile for voice . Hmmmmm
Now I hope the Snap has a twice faster clock speed than the ironically-named Dash, which ran 201 MHz.
