The HTC Advantage has been updated and the new version unveiled at the 2008 GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

This Microsoft Windows Mobile smart device was first announced way back in February 2007, but now HTC has updated it with new software, more storage and a new keyboard.

The interface now supports one-touch access to emails, text messages, missed calls, calendar appointments and contacts, as well as current weather conditions and forecasts for hundreds of cities around the world.

Coupled with this is new TouchFLO software which enhances finger touch scrolling and browsing of web pages, documents, messages and contact lists.

The Advantage will now also include Opera Mobile 9 and Google Maps for mobile.

HTC adds that 16GB of storage is included as standard, as well as a new improved keyboard with haptic feedback and an updated version of VueFLO using a G-sensor that recognises the screen orientation of the device to make it easier to read.

Other key features include a built-in video output capability, a five-inch VGA colour touch screen, QWERTY keyboard, and in-built GPS and TomTom Navigator 6.

Wireless connectivity options include Tri-band HSPDA, Wi-Fi and stereo Bluetooth 2.0 connectivity.

The updated HTC Advantage will be available in March but we don't have a price as yet.
