A precursor to superphones like the Galaxy Note, the Windows Moible-powered HTC Advantage sported a monstrous 5-inch VGA screen and a magnetic keyboard that attached to the bottom. When closed, a see-through panel in the keyboard let you see the time, signal strength and battery meter. At a hefty 13 ounces, the Advantage was a lot to carry, but HTC included a handy leather carrying case. A 624-MHz processor made this device an intriguing alternative to UMPCs (remember those?), but at $899 unlocked this PDA-phone combo was just too pricey for the masses.
