It has been a while since we talked about HTC HD Mini, the younger brother of the extremely impressive HTC HD2. So here we are with a review of the small sized Windows Mobile device which was announced back in February at the Mobile World Congress. which has a lot of interesting points to touch and talk about. Review follows after the jump.
As always, let us first take a look at the specs of the device:
600 MHz processor.
5 megapixel camera with auto-focus.
Windows Mobile 6.5.3.
3.2 inch capacitive touch screen.
microSD card upto 32 GB.
As is obvious, the device is less powerful than HTC HD2 but that is not a bad thing since that was the purpose of introducing this device in the first place. What’s important here is that the specs are still good enough for the cell phone to be termed as a modern smartphone, since it has WiFi, Bluetooth, 3G and a 5 MP camera. I would have certainly liked to see Flash as part of the package but they say you lose some and win some for a reason.
HTC Sense support is another reason to love this device. Although I am yet to use this device, based on the videos I have seen, the relatively smaller touch screen hasn’t caused any sort of concern to me.
The device is believed to have some multi-touch issues when browsing the web and can’t run some third party apps. These might sound negative points at first, but when you give it a second thought, these aren’t show stoppers as all that is needed is a firmware update and some optimization for the 3rd party apps to function properly.
