So the obvious question
Does it have video drivers? Have they elected to cripple this model in their usual way? Perhaps they've supplied a microphone, but no wires to connect it, something of that sort? Have they released a statement confirming that future models will include the facility of "speech", but they believe the overall quality of the S730 somehow compensates for the broken features therein. That's the particular shaft that the owners of most of their other recent models have received.
HTC, thou name is mud.
