HTC Hermes/TyTN/DoPod 838Pro Reviewed (Verdict: With Great Power Comes Great Functionality)

We've covered the TyTN before (pretty extensively), so this is more of a reminder that there is an option besides the Sprint PPC-6700/Verizon XV6700/Cingular 8125/T-Mobile MDA if you want a smartphone with a keyboard.

The sucessor to the HTC Wizard, which is the design all the above phones are based on, the Hermes has a 2.8-inch screen, scroll wheel, UMTS, Bluetooth 2.0, video calling, 2-megapixel camera, and 400MHz processor. And since it's quad-band GSM, you can only import it to use on Cingular or T-Mobile. All these improved features do come with a price, as it's around $800 to $900 depending on where you look online.
