HTC Advantage X7501 spotted in the wild

The HTC Advantage X7500 series, like the HTC Shift, was not officially released in the Philippines by HTC but could have been a nice MID to have back in 2007.

This unit was spotted at InfoMaxx in Greenhills and was selling for Php55,000. There’s already a new version, the HTC Advantage X7510 announced last year and wasn’t released here either.

If there was a version of this with a “Xenon Flash”, God, I would want to buy this one; imagine, I can blog away when I’m in starbucks (care of wi-fi)and take pictures worth blogging about at the same time! wah!
    for a computer, this one’s an underdog;
