HTC Freestyle

The HTC Freestyle is a feature phone based on Qualcomm's Brew MP platform, which will be coming to AT&T. The carrier also announced at CES 2011 that it plans on launching five additional quick messaging phones running Brew MP.

Since software is not finalized, HTC showed off a nonworking device. The handset will run a revised version of HTC Sense along with its FriendStream widget.

The smartphone offers a 3.2-inch HVGA capacitive touch screen; just below that are Talk and End keys and a back button.

The Freestyle features an aluminum unibody design that's lightweight and slim. It felt nice in hand--quite similar to the HTC Wildfire, but thinner.
