In case you missed it, Telus has released the first official Windows Mobile 6 device – HTC S720 – in Canada. It is a sweet device, offers some great features. It think it is time to upgrade my Q finally 🙂

You can see the full specs below, it costs $149.99 on a 3 year contract, which is very reasonable for many users.

The unit has a slide out keyboard, similar to S710 (the GSM version of S720) and looks like a regular T9 phone when it is not out.
