Unboxing the HTC Advantage

I'm still on the fence with the HTC Advantage (formerly known as the Athena and briefly, the Ameo), mainly because I've asked myself why would I need such a device that acts like my smartphone except much larger? I've heard HTC's justification but don't quit buy it, yet. Possibly a hands on when it finally arrives stateside this summer, may make me think differently.

The HTC Advantage sports a built-in GPS powered by TomTom software for the European market while it's still unknown for the US market. Other HTC given features include quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE plus HSDPA/UMTS (850/1900/2100). I remember seeing the Advantage all over the T-Mobile booth at CeBIT – so it's likely T-Mobile USA will launch the device here.
