HTC has revealed its plans for a budget smartphone called the Smart.
Interestingly, it won’t be running Android or Windows Mobile, but Qualcomm’s Brew platform.
The phone’s specifications aren’t clear at the moment, but it’s thought that it will boast a 2.8 inch touchscreen, and a 2 or 3 megapixel camera (reports vary on this issue).
Wi-fi support won’t be here, unsurprisingly given the budget pricing which should make this a tempting entry into the world of smartphones for many.
“HTC has always focused on listening to customers and setting the stage for new mobile categories and HTC Smart is the response to customer demand around the world for an easier-to-use, affordable smartphone,” said Peter Chou, CEO of HTC.
The phone’s launch date has been put down as spring 2010.
