The HTC Explorer Brings Small back to the smart phone world
If you are familiar with HTC, then you most likely know they strive to have devices for everyone’s tastes and needs. From giant super phones like the recently announced Raider 4G, to the small but highly powerful HTC WildFire series, to the newly launched women centric HTC rhyme, the company has most corners covered. While the Wildfire is an amazing pocket-able device it seems that HTC feels the form factor needs an update…enter the HTC Pico, or I mean the HTC Explorer.
Back in August spy shots of a super small HTC device surfaced. The device was code named the HTC Pico and came into this world with a blue color scheme. While the specs on this device are not of worldly power it fits the bill for many people looking for a smaller sized device. Pocketnow.Com has released some renderings of what the blue Pico has become…and it’s nice. The HTC Explorer will surely be marketed and directed at budget minded
shoppers that still need some excellence. This newly uncovered version of the device unfortunately brings no updates to the original rumored spec listings of the Pico. It comes ready with a 3.2 inch 320×480 HVGA screen, and packs in an MSM 7227 600 MHz processor. This processor is backed by 384 MB of RAM and 512 MB of ROM which runs Android version 2.3 or Gingerbread, skinned with HTC Sense 3.5 run smoothly. This excellent little phone will also come with all the ‘expected’s’ from a smart phone, by this I mean Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and 3G connectivity. It also packs in a 5 mega pixel camera that sports an LED flash, auto focus, wide screen capture mode, face detection and a dedicated camera button. You should also expect expandable microSD memory that can support up to 32 GB of extra space. The HTC Explorer was expected by many to be announced at HTC’s Celebrate in style even in NYC, however it went un-announced. So all we can do is ponder at this point. Given its stature we can surely expect this amazing little device to be priced fairly low. While the rumored specs on its radio won’t allow it to work to well here in the states, it’s safe to say we will most likely see an American version sometime in the near future.
