HTC's newest Android phone has been revealed, the HTC Gratia, though given it appears to be a European version of the HTC Aria they're not making a huge fuss over it. Packed into a compact chassis is Android 2.2 Froyo, a 5-megapixel camera and HTC Sense; there's also a 3.2-inch HVGA touchscreen and 600MHz Qualcomm processor, along with dualband 900/2100 HSPA/WCDMA and WiFi b/g.
As you could have guessed from the name, T-Mobile has just announced that the HTC HD7 will be heading to the Magenta network by the mid-weeks of November. We already know the device will be heading to Europe in October, so those in the United States will have to wait a bit longer. And, T-Mobile is happy to announce that, along with the Dell Venue, the HTC HD7 is an exclusive handset to bring Windows Phone 7 to the network in time for the holiday shopping sprees.
If the Desire HD is HTC's uber-multimedia phone, the HTC Desire Z is their business monster. We've been asking the company to produce a new hardware QWERTY device for twelve months now, and they've certainly delivered: the Desire Z's 'board is finger-friendly, snappy and slotted into a handset that still manages to be pocketable.
Yesterday, we told you that HTC and Sprint had managed to get everything squared away with the Android 2.2 update, and sure enough, it looks like everything is still going well. Why do we say that? Because you can actually go download the official update right now, courtesy of Sprint's support site. That's right -- you don't have to wait for the OTA update that's set to kick off on August 3rd. Find out after the break if the list of features is good enough for you to jump the gun and start your download early, or if you'll be able to hold off and wait.
The HTC Wildfire is the company's second attempt at a budget Android device, its predecessor being the underspecified and relatively unloved Tattoo. Packing the same Sense UI as more expensive siblings like the Legend and Desire, together with a 5-megapixel camera and a multitouch-capable display, does the Wildfire manage to be both affordable and feature-rich? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
HTC's new Aria smartphone has been made official on AT&T, with the compact touchscreen Android handset expected to make its sales debut on June 20th. The HTC Aria has a 3.2-inch HVGA capacitive touchscreen - like the HTC Legend - together with an optical joystick and HTC's Sense UI, and runs Android 2.1.
There's also Bluetooth, WiFi and 3G/HSPA, together with a 5-megapixel camera on the back. If you're thinking that the Aria's physical design looks familiar, you're not wrong: HTC have used a similar style to the HTC HD mini, down to the soft-touch rubber back plate and the exposed screws holding the whole smartphone together. Of course the big difference is that the Aria runs Android rather than the HD mini's Windows Mobile 6.5.3.
Long anticipated, hugely specified and just plain huge: there's a lot to like about the HTC EVO 4G. The first WiMAX phone in the US brings with it the promise of DSL-like mobile data access along with the flexibility of Google's Android OS, complete with HTC's now-legendary hardware quality and flexible Sense UI. On the flip side it's nowhere near cheap and WiMAX coverage is marginal. Is this new superphone faster than a speeding bullet, or is that just how quickly it drains its battery? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
HTC have unveiled their latest Android smartphone, the HTC Wildfire, an entry-level model intended to replace the Tattoo. Packing Android 2.1 together with HTC Sense, the Wildfire has a 3.2-inch QVGA capacitive LCD touchscreen, 5-megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash, optical trackpad and a new app called Application Sharing. We grabbed some hands-on time ahead of the official launch; check out our first-impressions after the cut.
The HTC Smart has just dropped onto the SlashGear desk, and while this budget BREW handset may not have the same wow-factor as one of the company's more recent Android smartphones like the Desire or Legend, it's interesting simply for representing a push from the company into the mainstream. Qualcomm's BREW OS keeps things ticking, but on top of that is the HTC Sense UI complete with Friend Stream social network integration. Check out our first-impressions after the cut.
It's been a long time coming, with all sorts of leaks, documents, and blurry cam images to make any Android fanatic out there ache in the knees to get some kind of official announcement by Verizon Wireless about the existence of the handset. Well, for all of you out there who were waiting to see what all the fuss was about, here you are. The Droid Incredible by HTC has gone on the record as being the latest member of the Droid army for the nation's largest wireless carrier. And it's as every bit as good as we had heard rumored.
