It’s now taken for granted that business-oriented smartphones will offer all the connectivity options you’d need out on the road. But only the elite will integrate seamlessly with the ubiquitous Windows platform – a distinct advantage when you’re expected to be able to deal with an important document, spreadsheet or presentation on the fly. hTc’s tri-band TyTN connects as fast as you can go via HSDPA, is able to tap into Wi-Fi networks, talks to Bluetooth devices, and also links through a mini-USB port. It features Direct Push e-mail technology, Internet browsing, and synchronisation with calendar, contacts and e-mail. Importantly, it gives you the ability to work on Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents as well as to view PDF files. Remember that saying about all work and no play? When it’s time to have fun, sync to a PC, download music, video and pictures, and store them on a MicroSD card for playback on the go. There’s also a two-megapixel camera plus a second camera for video telephony, a 7 cm QVGA colour touch-screen and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.
