HTC Debuts BREW-Based Phone with Sense
Today HTC announced a new phone that uses Qualcomm's BREW platform instead of Windows Mobile or Android. BREW is used by Verizon for a number of its feature phones and AT&T recently announced that it will begin to offer BREW-based phones. It is a lower-cost platform for mobile phones meant for the mass market. The Smart is a slab-style touch phone that features HTC's Sense user interface. Sense is a user interface overlay that HTC uses on both its Windows Mobile and Android devices. It provides a more intuitive way to interact with a phone. It runs on a 300MHz processor and has quad-band GSM/EDGE radios and 2100MHz 3G support. The touch screen measures 2.8 inches and has QVGA resolution. It also offers a 3 megapixel fixed focus camera with flash, Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP, a 3.5mm headset jack and support for microSD cards. The Smart will go on sale later this spring in Europe and Asian markets.
