The HTC S620, also known as the HTC Excalibur, is a Qwerty smartphone running Windows Mobile 5. Like all smartphones, the S620 can install additional programs, but, unlike modern Android or iOS devices, there is no integrated app store. To install new software, you'll need to download a CAB install file on your computer and transfer it onto the device. Windows Mobile smartphones work best when connected to Windows XP, Vista or 7 computers.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • HTC S620 smartphone

Select your newly installed program to start it.
