HTC to put 3.5mm jacks in most of its phones
Over the years, HTC has launched more than 30 smartphones, but only three of them have a 3.5mm headset jack: HTC Hero (pictured below), HTC Touch HD and the HTC Advantage X7510.
Well, we have good news for all those who are tired of 2.5mm jacks and proprietary ports: according to Mobile Crunch, HTC has decided to put 3.5mm headset jacks in “the vast majority of devices” it will launch from now on – meaning after the Hero, which is the company’s first Android smartphone with a 3.5mm jack.
Most probably, it’s HTC’s future low-end models that won’t have a 3.5mm jack. So we should hope that this feature will be included in all the upcoming Android models, as well as in the successors of Touch Diamond2 and Touch Pro2.
HTC recently said that it would launch more Android and WM smartphones this year, so let’s wait and see if they’ll indeed have the craved 3.5mm jack.
