HTC is one of the most interesting companies in the smartphone biz. So whenever a new announcement from them is coming, we can expect something interesting to write about. Be it a new user interface for Windows Mobile or Android, the first Android phone ever, the first Google phone ever etc;
And while nothing as groundbreaking was announced at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, HTC had some worthy additions to its smartphone line-up.
As you already know, there were 3 handsets, 2 of them, HTC Legend and Desire, running Android, and HTC HD Mini, with windows Mobile 6.5.3.
HTC Legend is the successor of HTC Hero, and looks the part. It’s got a faster CPU (600 MHz instead of 528 MHz), more memory, Android 2.1 OS with Sense UI and single cast aluminum frame for a body.
HTC Desire is the most powerful HTC Android handset, running on 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU. It’s basically the same phone as Google Nexus On, only with HTC’s Sense UI tacked on top of Android.
With HTC HD Mini, the name says it all. It’s a smaller, more compact version of the popular HTC HD 2 Windows Mobile handset.
Here’s a hands-on video overview of the HTC Legend, Desire and HD mini:
