While well known for making distinctive smartphones, including the HD2 which was recently launched overseas, Digitimes is reporting that HTC will be making high end BREW based featurephones for launch early next year. Using Qualcomm's BREW Mobile Platform, the handsets were originally planned for late 2009. The delay is apparently due to Qualcomm Brew’s "relatively immature application service platform offering for telecom carriers," according to the site. Qualcomm is working with developers to create apps for web browsing, GPS, multimedia management and mobile community services. In the U.S., expect Verizon and Sprint to be offering these models sometime early next year.
