HTC Smart – a Brew-based affordable phone
Rumors have been circulating for quite a while, saying HTC will be launching a phone not based on Windows Mobile or Android.We have already reported about a device named HTC Touch.B, which utilizes the Qualcomm's platform - BREW. Well, the time has come to officially introduce the device under the name of HTC Smart.

HTC Smart is a device meant for the mass consumer and will use the Sense interface, which we are well acquainted with from the manufacturer's Windows Mobile and Android phones. It provides great personalization possibilities, as well as easy access to social networks. Naturally, an e-mail client is also present.

The manufacturer's main idea is that HTC Smart should be cheap, so more people could afford it. This has naturally led to unimpressive characteristics - 2.8-inch QVGA display, 3-megapixel camera with fixed focus, 300MHz processor, 256MB RAM and 256MB ROM memory. Good news for the music fans is that HTC Smart has a 3.5 mm jack. Additionally, it offers a microSD slot and a miniUSB port for charging and connecting to a computer.

HTC Smart is a quadband GSM, however it will only be able to use 3G networks in Europe and Asia. The device looks very promising as a whole and we are can't wait to get our hands on it. It is expected to launch in Europe and Asia in spring, but pricing is still unknown.

Sounds like a great feature phone - very nicely designed and with a beautiful Sense UI. Frankly, I wish HTC makes more different, more affordable phones - 95% of mobile phone users don't need smartphone capabilities - even the entry level feature phones have an e-mail client, a browser, and a media player. HTC's Sense UI is so nice, I wish other manufacturers learn something from them.

Looks perfect for someone who wants a cool phone but don't need a PDA
