HTC‘s Advantage device is very difficult to classify. Because of the largish display (5″) and pixel format (640 x 480) it doesn’t quite fit the smartphone category; it’s a bit too big. But it’s not quite a netbook because those seem to start around 7″ and sport a slightly higher pixel format at 800 x 480 or 1024 x 600. So what is the Advantage? A netbook mini perhaps? Or is it a UMPC?
Whatever HTC’s Advantage is, it is a powerful mobile device with enough LCD real estate to a lot of work, since HTC is squarely positioning for business use. The 16GB of flash storage space should allow for carrying a lot of non-business file such as audio, video and pictures along with your Office documents.
