HTC Smart Smartphone Lands At O2

O2 has presented another HTC smartphone, the Smart, which was presented back in January 2010 at the CES 2010 in Las Vegas and is squarely aimed at the entry level.

Not surprisingly, it doesn't come with Android but uses Qualcomm's own BREW Os platform and still uses the same Sense user interface that's standard across HTC's range of phones.

It is powered by a 300MHz ARM-based SoC, packs 256MB RAM and 256MB ROM, a 2.8-inch LCD touchscreen with 240x320 pixels and a 3-megapixel camera with flash and focus.

On the not-so-bright side, it comes with a "small" 1100mAh polymer battery, Bluetooth, a microSD card, a 3.5mm audio jack but no WiFi.

O2 sells the phone on PAYG for only £100 which is surprisingly low for a new phone with that specification. You can get it for as little as £10 per month on a 24 months with 50 minutes and unlimited texts.

However to get the inclusive Web Bolt on, you will need to spend at least £25 per month over two years to get a decent package (300 minutes and unlimited texts).

Sadly, this is as expensive as the HTC Desire from O2 which means that it's better to fork out the money for a significantly better smartphone. Poor show O2.
