HTC Explorer unboxing video

HTC Explorer The HTC Explorer is the newest Android smartphone from HTC. HTC state that the Explorer is their most affordable smartphone coming in at the £150 mark it’s currently their least expensive (current) model.

The explorer is certainly small, a few millimetres shorter than the Wildfire and a little thinner than the Wildfire S whilst retaining the same 3.2″ HVGA screen size. Not surprisingly, the HTC Explorer doesn’t have the same aluminium construction as its more expensive counterparts, but instead has a rubberised back and edges that looks like an additional case around it.

There is a price to pay for the reduced cost of the HTC Explorer, the CPU is a somewhat limited 600MHz and available storage is just 90MB so you’ll be reaching for a MicroSD card pretty quickly. That said, as you can see in the benchmark in the video below, the Explorer seems to run at a reasonable pace and benefits from HTC Sense 3.5

Full review coming soon but for now here’s the unboxing and demo video.
