HTC Bliss and HTC Pico pose for the camera in hopes to grab some attention
leaked carrier roadmap is to be believed, the smartphone will likely land on Verizon's shelves on September 29. For those who need a refresher, the HTC Bliss is rumored to be a smartphone aimed at ladies and will come with a handful of matching accessories, namely a special docking station, Bluetooth audio gear and a glow-up charm that will go off whenever a notification awaits your attention. In terms of hardware, it is said that the device will be powered by a relatively modest 800MHz chip and will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread with HTC Sense 3.5 on top.
it is known only as the HTC Pico, which might turn out to be merely a code name, and judging by its entry-level hardware specs, first-time smartphone users are to be its primary market.
Just like the HTC Wildfire S, the HTC Pico is said to be equipped with a 600 MHz Qualcomm MSM7227 chipset and a 3.2-inch HVGA display. Unsurprisingly, Android 2.3 Gingerbread is the operating system in charge, yet what we find rather intriguing is that “HTC Sense Zero” is listed on the device's specs sheet, which is rumored to be a stripped down version of HTC's custom interface. Whether the HTC Pico ever make it to the US is still a mystery, but the frequencies that it supports hint at an European debut.

Agreed. It's so worth it to pay $200 for a great phone when your gonna have it for the next 2 years. Its a shame too many people have to find that out the hard way after having their budget phone for 3 months and having it force close and lag 24/7.
