On the first sight, it looks like a typical HTC Sense smartphone but HTC's latest mobile phone is neither running Windows Mobile nor Android. HTC just officially unveiled the HTC Smart - which leaked as Touch.B or HTC Rome before - a new type of smartphone that creates a new category of easy-to-use, connected smartphones that are accessible by people all over the world. HTC Smart begins with a friendly compact touch design and integrates an intuitive user experience that is centered around HTC Sense, an HTC design philosophy that puts people at the center by focusing on three core areas: Make It Mine, Stay Close and Discover the Unexpected.

The HTC Smart is HTC's first non-smartphone, running Qualcomm's Brew Mobile Platform. It supports quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as singleband UMTS/HSDPA at 2100 MHz as well as Bluetooth 2.0+EDR. Being a feature phone only, the Smart neither sports WiFi nor a GPS receiver. The 2.8" TFT touchscreen supports QVGA and the fixfocus camera supports 3.0 megapixel but also supports a supporting flash LED.
At a size of 104 x 55 x 12.8 mm, the device weights 108 grams including the battery. The inbuild 256 MB RAM and ROM can be expanded with microSD memory cards.

HTC Smart enables personal customization of each person’s own phone experience. It also provides a quick and easy way to see what friends are up to via various social networks as well as quickly communicating over the phone, through text messaging or E-Mail. As unveiled earlier already, the HTC Smart utilizes Qualcomm’s Brew Mobile Platfrom, a popular mobile operating system that enables feature phones to be offered at more aggressive price points, providing HTC with the flexibility to deliver smartphone features on devices across multiple tiers.

The HTC Smart will be available this spring across Europe and Asia. A price wasn't given today.

Cheers ~ Arne
