HTC Tattoo Android smartphone review

HTC Tattoo Android smartphone review

Taking the software enhancements from your flagship Android smartphone and injecting it into the runt of the range might throw up warning signs for some, but that's exactly what HTC have done with the Tattoo. It may be smaller, pack fewer megapixels and a less fashionable touchscreen than the HTC Hero, but the Tattoo still totes the well-received HTC Sense along with Android 1.6. Are we looking at the bargain of the season, or is the Tattoo just playing dress-up? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

HTC Tattoo video unboxing & first-impressions

The HTC Tattoo may not have the flagship appeal of the HTC Hero, but with its entry-level positioning it has the potential to introduce a lot more users to the Android platform.  HTC have kept costs down by choosing a smaller display and using a restive touchscreen, though you still get HSPA, WiFi b/g, GPS and the company's latest UI enhancements.  A Tattoo landed on SlashGear's desk today; check out our video unboxing, first-impressions and comparison gallery with the HTC Hero after the cut.

HTC Wildfire S Review

HTC Wildfire S Review

Expectations around the HTC Wildfire S are, a little surprisingly, high. The third of HTC's new Android devices from MWC 2011 in February, the entry-level smartphone replaces the Wildfire, a device which managed to carve itself quite the niche among pre-pay users and the budget or bulk conscious. Now the S-variant comes to further refine the lineage: we're a long way from the Tattoo, but has HTC done enough to keep the Wildfire S relevant today? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

HTC Wildfire Review

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 Wildfire gets video unboxing

HTC Wildfire gets video unboxing

The Samsung Galaxy S isn't the only Android 2.1 smartphone to arrive here today; we've just taken delivery of the HTC Wildfire, the company's new entry-level smartphone and quite the mini-Desire and promptly shot an unboxing video and shared some hands-on first impressions over at Android Community.  Packing a compact 3.2-inch QVGA capacitive touchscreen, 3G/UMTS, HTC Sense and a 5-megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash, the Wildfire walks the tightrope between budget and functionality, and it seems to do a whole lot better than the Tattoo it replaces.

HTC Smart Review

HTC Smart Review

With a wealth of high-end smartphones on the market, and eye-catching alternatives such as the fourth-generation iPhone HD and WiMAX-toting HTC EVO 4G just around the corner, it's easy to forget that the real sales movement happens down at the more affordable levels. Crashing into that market comes the HTC Smart, a smartphone with a spec-sheet that looks anaemic in comparison to most rivals but a similarly slender price tag to boot. Based on Qualcomm's Brew MP OS - healthily reskinned with HTC Sense - the Smart hopes to pull in the entry-level smartphone crowd, graduating from their dumbphones. Does it deliver, or have HTC had to shave away too much to meet a bargain-basement price? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
