HTC's Smart isn't so smart

A new HTC touch-screen phone runs on BREW, but features the Sense UI.


LAS VEGAS--HTC reminded us to expect the unexpected Thursday when it announced a new cell phone, the HTC Smart. Though it looks like your standard HTC smartphone, the handset runs on Qualcomm's BREW platfrom. The result isn't quite a smartphone, but it will use HTC's Sense user interface that's currently found on the company's Windows Mobile and Android devices like the HTC Hero.

Features on the quad-band GSM/EDGE handset include a 300MHz processor, a 2.8 inch touch-screen, 3-megapixel camera with flash, stereo Bluetooth, a 3.5mm headset jack and a microSD card slot. The Smart will go on sale later this year, but its 2,100MHz 3G support means that it will debut only in European and Asian markets.
