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-Hero-35mm headset jack

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.

    at least one other handset of HTC had 3.5mm jack:

    the HTC Universal

    Yup, the HTC Universal does have a 3.5mm headset jack. But as far as I know, it was not sold as “HTC Universal”, but as Qtek 9000, i-mate JASJAR, O2 XDA Exec, T-Mobile MDA IV and other branded names like these. Anyway, it is indeed the fourth HTC handset to have a 3.5mm jack, but it's discontinued now.

    well you said 30 devices over the years, so that includes their earlier/discontinued devices that were rebranded before they aquired DOPOD in 2007.
