HTC Smart2 is already in development and will pack Wi-Fi & Office Suite?
It would only be likely that HTC would commission a successor to the ultra-affordable HTC Smart handset if sales for it have proven to be sufficient to warrant the move. The Brew-based handset's most notable feature is undoubtedly its inexpensive cost to own, but HTC already is looking to follow it up with the HTC Smart2 according to some new information. From what's heard, the HTC Smart2 is “more or less similar” to the original, but it will pack on some new features to offer some additional value for the handset – such as the inclusion of Wi-Fi and Office Suite to allow users to edit documents on the go. Following the same path as the original, it's cost for ownership is rumored to be nothing more than 10,000 INR in India – which should clearly add to its appeal. Needless to say that HTC will refine the handset while maintaining that affordable cost for ownership, but there was no mention of any expected release date.
