HTC Smart unboxing and demo video

Smart-main Back in February of this year HTC announced 4 new handsets at MWC in Barcelona, we’ve already seen and reviewed the first three of those handsets, the HTC Desire, HTC Legend and HTC HD mini. This is the new HTC Smart, the fourth of those handsets to be announced.

The HTC Smart is, I believe, the first HTC handset not to feature either Windows Mobile or Android and instead runs on the Brew Mobile Platform. The Smart, like all the other HTC devices at the moment, still comes with the Sense UI and upon initial inspection you would perhaps find it hard to determine that it wasn’t running one of the more mainstream operating systems.

The HTC Smart is perhaps then a more entry-level handset and I suspect that will be reflected in the eventual sale price. It does however, seem to bring a number of Smartphone features to a more ‘feature phone’ handset. At the moment it looks like the Smart will be exclusive to O2 here in the UK and it doesn’t even look like we’ll see a SIM-free version.

As always, we’ll be writing up our full review of the HTC Smart which will be here for you, all being well, early next week. For now you can have a look at my unboxing and brief demo video below. I’ll also have more video for you soon.
