HTC Universal Pocket PC first hands-on preview
Dale Coffing managed to get his hands on a pre-production unit of the HTC Universal, one of the first Pocket PC devices that will run Microsoft's recently announced Windows Mobile 5 software. It's most distinguishing feature is definitely the clamshell mode which offers landscape display above the keyboard, ideal for surfing the Web or writing long e-mails.

It's an interesting device. I think it's a perfect candidate for a smal LCD screen on the reverse of the flip cover so that, even though you can answer the phone with the flip closed, you should be able to see the caller ID. Also, it'd be cool to use the small LCD as the camera's viewfinder with the flip closed.
These devices are so appealing to me. I wish Palm licensees were this innovative.
