Android, Mobile phones, Tech Digest news

htc-explorer-top.jpgAnother day, another HTC smartphone for your perusal. Those looking to dip their toes into the smartphone ocean without breaking the bank should have a look at the HTC Explorer, the latest entry-level device from the Taiwanese manufacturers.

Continuing a lineage that began with the HTC Smart, the Explorer features a 3.2-inch display running at 480 x 320 resolution, with a 600MHz processor and 512MB of RAM. Running Android 2.3.5, you’ll get full Flash video playback, as well as HTC’s nifty Sense 3.5 UI laid on top, a stripped back version of the UI that features a customiseable shortcut-filled homescreen widget. There’s also a data monitoring app, letting you keep track of just how much costly data you’re eating up on PAYG contracts.

Camera quality is pretty much what you’d expect from an entry-level device, with a 3MP snapper on the rear and 720 x 480 video recording possible.

Headed to Vodafone and Three networks “soon”, you’ll be able to pick up the Explorer in shades of blue, orange, white and purple.
