Mobile World Congress : HTC HD Mini

Now here we have another phone from which doesn’t seem to be breaking too many barriers by appearing to be an updated version of one of its current line of mobiles. Like The Nokia N97 got its Mini, this is the HD2 but mini.Originally this phone was going to be named the “Photon” it’s one of the only phones managed to keep under wraps before the congress. If you remember the HD2 was a very solid good all-round phone, maybe a little big but again appears to have delivered that in a smaller form.


Running Windows Mobile 6.5.3(hasn’t 7 just been announced at the congress? :s) in conjunction with ’s Sense UI the HD mini has a 3.2” HVGA capacitive touchscreen more than capable of multitouch functions. It also has a a 5MP camera on the back but unfortunately it lacks a flash so no snaps in the dark i am afraid, well lit areas only.


Other exciting features lie in the software of the HD mini. Firstly it can share its 3G internet goodness to other enabled wireless devices, acting as its own little hotspot, WOW! This feature is exclusive to Windows Mobile, phones. Another funky little addition is something that calls “Manner Mode”. When you pick up your phone your ear-shattering ringtone quietens down. Its little touches like this that make such a great competitor in todays mobile market. Like the Desire we’re looking at a Q2 release.
