MWC 2010: HTC HD Mini Announced

Along with two Android phones HTC has introduced the HTC HD Mini, an HTC Sense-based Windows Phone.

“The demand for the HTC HD2 has exceeded our expectations, and the HTC HD mini fulfils a desire from some customers to bring the capabilities and experience of the HTC HD2 to a more compact design,” said Peter Chou, chief executive officer, HTC Corporation. “The integration of HTC Sense and Windows Phone on HD mini and HD2 gives customers an additional choice for an advanced Windows mobile phone that is sleek, well crafted and easy to use.”

The HTC HD Mini utilises HTC Sense, a user experience focused on putting people at the centre by making the phone work in a more simple and natural way. Like the HTC HD2, the HTC HD Mini continues the same focus on people-centric communication with complete Outlook integration. HTC’s Windows-based Twitter application, HTC Peep, enables users to tweet and follow their twitter stream.

HTC HD Mini includes capacitive touch for viewing, zooming and resizing websites, Microsoft Office files, PDF documents and pictures with just a pinch of the fingers. Leveraging its 3G broadband connectivity, the HTC HD mini also offers personal Wi-Fi. It can also be further enhanced to reflect needs and style by downloading a variety of applications from the Windows Marketplace for Mobile.

The new HTC HD Mini will be broadly available to customers across major European and Asian markets beginning in April.
