MWC 2010: HTC HD2 's little brother, the HTC HD mini launched

Mobile phones, MWC 2010, Tech Digest news

htc hd mini.jpgThe HTC HD2 was one of last year’s most sought after handsets, with its brilliant display and slick touchscreen interface. With the HTC HD Mini, you get all the same features of the HTC HD2 squeezed down into a more pocket-friendly size.

As with the HTC HD2, the HD Mini has a great screen. A 3.2 inch capacitive touchscreen, it’s multi-touch enabled with a HVGA resolution.

In a nice touch, the HTC HD Mini can be used as a Wi-Fi hotspot, allowing all your wireless devices to share its 3G signal, a HTC/WinMo exclusive feature. There’s also a “Manner Mode” which scales back the phones ringing tone when you pick up the handset, which will be welcome if you’re partial to a bit of Crazy-Frog silliness.

Finally, there’s a 5 megapixel camera on-board, but sadly no room for a flash.

It’s looking good, a truly bite-sized version of the HTC HD2. More news on this one as we get it.
