HTC's gone and followed up their S730-which was itself an HTC Vox successor-with the HTC S740. The latest phone keeps the slide-out candybar form factor, complete with keypad on front and QWERTY on the back, but also takes huge design influences from the HTC Touch Diamond. It runs Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard edition (the gimpier one), but still looks pretty darn good for a phone of this form factor. Hit the jump for the full specs.
