Features

The device runs the Windows Mobile 5 and 6 Smartphone Edition operating systems (AKU 3.0). It uses a 200 MHz Texas Instruments OMAP850 (ARM architecture) processor, with 64 MB of RAM and 128 MB of flash ROM. A microSD slot is also available for additional expansion capability.

It includes a quad band (850 MHz, 900 MHz, 1800 MHz, 1900 MHz) GSM radio with EDGE, 802.11g WiFi support, and Bluetooth communications. The device syncs with ActiveSync or Windows Mobile Device Center (Windows Vista and Windows 7) over Bluetooth or USB. It also has GPRS/EDGE and Wi-Fi connections.

Its successor, the HTC S630 (codenamed Cavalier) was released August 2007.

T-Mobile initially shipped Windows Mobile 5 on all Dash devices, but began offering existing Dash owners the ability to update to Windows Mobile 6 on May 4, 2007.
