We were hoping to hear some news from HTC, and the device manufacturer did indeed have a couple of announcements at GSMA. The first is the HTC 3470. The company is touting it as the affordable option for those looking for a smartphone with built-in GPS. Uhh, I'm not sure what HTC's definition of affordable is, but with a price tag of 449 euros ($652 U.S.), I wouldn't exactly call it a bargain. It comes preloaded with TomTom Navigator 6 software, so along with the assisted GPS, users will be able to get turn-by-turn directions, points of interest, and more. The Windows Mobile 6 smartphone also has a 2.8-inch touchscreen, a 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.0, and 256MB of flash memory. The HTC P3470 will launch in the United Kingdom, France, Spain, and the Netherlands later this month with Orange.
