HTC unraveled three new phones at the world’s biggest mobile expo this week. Joining in HTC’s wide portfolio are WinMo powered HD Mini and Android powered Legend and Desire.
As the name suggests, HD Mini claims to give the same HD2 experience in a smaller chassis. Although the HD Mini is not powered by the powerful Snapdragon, it does come with the latest build of WinMo and HTC Sense. The 11.7mm thin and 103.8mm tall phone crams a 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen (HVGA), 600MHz processor, 512/384MB ROM/RAM, HSDPA, 5MP autofocus camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi router app, GPS, microSD card slot and has an estimated battery life of over 7 hours. HD Mini is scheduled to go on sale in Europe and Asia sometime in early April.
Moving on to the new Android offerings, HTC Legend boasts the same Hero-like chin but is created out of a single aluminum block giving it a clean, classy look. The phone will run the latest Android 2.1 OS and will come with the latest version of HTC Sense, 600MHz CPU, optical trackball, 3.2-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with multi-touch (HVGA), 512/384MB ROM/RAM, 3G, 5MP camera, 3.5mm audio jack, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and support to back up SMS/MMS messages to microSD card automatically.
Desire is HTC’s flagship product for now. Powered by Snapdragon’s 1GHz processor, Desire runs Éclair build of Android (v2.1) and sports features like a large 3.7-inch AMOLED capacitive multi-touch touchscreen, updated Sense UI, 5MP autofocus camera with face detection, HSDPA, 512/572MB ROM/RAM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3.5mm audio jack, FM Radio, microSD card slot and GPS antenna.
