Yesterday, HTC released a list of HTC Smartphones that will be getting the Google Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich update and some HTC smartphone users are still wondering why their smartphones were not on the list.
HTC is rumored to be releasing two mid-range smartphones at the Mobile World Congress, in Barcelona Spain, at the end of this month. One of the phones is the HTC Primo, which looks very promising. It comes with a dual core 1GHz processor, and 512 MB of RAM. HTC gave the Primo a 3.7 inch display and a 5 megapixel camera to play with.
This week HTC held the biggest event in mainland China called the China Mega Week. During the three-day event, which was held at the China's National Convention Center, HTC interacted with many thousands of HTC fans, media, and partners. To impress the population, HTC launched five of its device with some of the most popular brands in China.
Well I’ll be honest with CTIA Fall coming up and HTC event on the 6th I didn’t think any new phone announcements would happen in between those times, but I was wrong. Today HTC announced the HTC Explorer, this will be an entry-level device. It will run Android 2.3 with HTC Sense 3.5, with a 3.2inch HVGA screen, 600MHz processor and 512MBof RAM. It packs a 1,230mAh battery and has a 3MP camera. This device is most likely aimed at the low income user or students with low funds also it could be aimed at the users of feature phones who are ready to make the step up to a smartphone.
Look what we have here and just in time for HTC event tomorrow. Here we have leaked Press Shot of the HTC Pico or its newly found name the HTC Explorer. Now this looks to be next in line for HTC Mid-range devices, not going to break your pockets but will still make some of your friend envy you. The HTC Explorer most likely will take the role that the Wildfire currently owns. A quick rundown of the specs to give you a better idea what you may get keep in mind these are still rumored not official. You have a 600MHz processor, with a 3.2-inch HVGA screen, 384 of RAM and 512 of ROM, a 5Mp camera, and the most anticipated Sense 3.5. The specs look to be pretty much believable, I just question the fact of a 600MHZ processor when a 800MHz was brought up when the first talks of Sense 3.5 came around and how Sense 3.5 was optimized for the lower end phones those with Single core 1GHz and 800MHz, so maybe I’m just over thinking it but still who would complain if it did come with a 800MHz instead of 600(no one). Moving on the phone will indeed run Gingerbread, and Pocketnow says look towards a Fall release for this device.
