The HTC HD Mini is officially announced
On its press conference, HTC announced the HTC HD mini (previously known as the HTC Photon). This is a rather smaller version of the HTC HD2, which will appeal to the people who like powerful Windows Mobile phones, but are not really into giant sizes.

Its appearance is very similar to the one of the HTC HD2, but its screen measures "only" 3.2 inches and has HVGA resolution and capacitive technology. An interesting thing is that the back cover is held by four screws, with HTC expecting various companies to offer transparent or semi-transparent variants.

For image and video capturing, the HTC HD mini will rely on a 5-megapixel camera, but unfortunately it lacks a flash. The device will use a 600MHz processor and Windows Mobile 6.5.3 OS. Sadly, there won't be an update to Windows Phone 7 Series. Naturally, the operating system is well-covered by the HTC Sense interface, which will be slightly updated here (HTC says there will be new widgets, similar to the Twitter tab on the HD2, which housed the Peep application).

HTC HD mini will be a quad-band GSM with 3G support for Europe and Asia and will get released on the market this April. There is no info about the price as of now.
