AT&T HTC Freestyle non-smartphone shows up unannounced
Aside from the Inspire 4G (which, let’s face it, is just a rehashed Evo 4G/Desire HD), AT&T looks like it’s prepping to launch yet another HTC handset. This though is no smartphone. It is in fact the second ever non-smartphone that HTC has made (the first being the not so well received HTC Smart).
Meet the HTC Freestyle, previously known by its codename Smart2.
It runs the BREW MP software platform developed by Qualcomm, and has a unibody aluminium construction, a 3.2-inch HVGA (480×320) capacitive touchscreen, a 3.2-megapixel camera, FM radio, proximity sensor and GPS. It’s powered by a Qualcomm 528 MHz processor, and has 256 MB of RAM and 512 MB of ROM. There’s also a microSD card slot, and a 1300 mAh battery.
HTC Sense is on board, along with FriendStream.
There are no pricing or availability details just yet, but expect the Freestyle to make its way into AT&T shops soon, aimed at those who’d like a touchscreen phone, but wouldn’t mind it not being a smartphone.
