HTC Smart first-impressions

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.

HTC 2010 roadmap leaks: HTC Bravo 1GHz Android confirmed [Updated]

HTC's device line-up for the first half of 2010 has apparently leaked, courtesy of xda-developers, after a prototype brochure fell into the wrong hands.  The range consists of five Android devices and three Windows Mobile handsets, including the so-called hero model of 1H 2010, the Android-based HTC Bravo.  The Bravo will pack the same 1GHz Snapdragon processor as the HTC HD2 along with a 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen and HD 720p video capture.  Full line-up details after the cut.

Updated: We've contacted HTC for a comment, and unsurprisingly they're not confirming anything.  "We cannot comment on speculation or rumour," HTC tell us, "but we’re excited about our upcoming roadmap and encourage you to watch this space."

HTC Hero running Android 2.1 with new HTC Sense spotted

HTC Hero running Android 2.1 with new HTC Sense spotted

HTC's public plans for their Sense UI and newer versions of Android have basically amounted to asking device owners to wait; an update to Android 2.0 for the HTC Hero has been promised since the end of October, but so far has not proved forthcoming.  That might be because HTC aren't reworking Sense for 2.0 but for Android 2.1; screenshots purporting to show the HTC UI running on the as-yet unreleased OS have leaked.

HTC’s design firm talk brand identity: more Android chin incoming

Lovers of the European HTC Hero's chin who were left disappointed with the Sprint model's stylings will be pleased to hear that the distinctive design may make a reappearance.  That's the word from Claude Zellweger, partner at the One & Co US design firm HTC acquired back in December 2008, who has been talking to Forbes about HTC's design future.  That future will seemingly lean heavily toward a design and brand identity, which gives users a "sense of coming home again" when they upgrade to another HTC device.

In a move likely to stoke controversy over Android fragmentation, Angry Birds developer Rovio Mobile has announced that, because of issues with low-power smartphones proving unable to cope with the game's processing requirements, they will be developing a second, "lightweight" version for users with such phones. "We have hesitated to create multiple versions of Angry Birds for the Android platform" the company said, "but judging by the feedback we have received, we feel that by providing a lightweight solution, we are doing a favour for our fans."
