HTC Smart runs Brew OS – Exclusive to O2

The HTC Smart is a budget phone that’s heading exclusively to the O2 network. The Smart runs the Brew operating system designed by Qualcomm and has the Sense UI as an overlay to that operating system.

The HTC Smart has a 300MHz processor along with 256MB of RAM. For storage a Micro SD card slot can be found. The screen measures 2.8 inches and can display 240 x 320 pixels. On the back of the phone a 3 megapixel camera can be found.

For connectivity the HTC Smart has HSDPA along with GSM/GPRS and Edge connectivity. Wireless networking is not included on the phone with it being a budget device, but you do get Bluetooth 2.0 along with A2DP stereo audio.

Battery life on the phone is quite good with 370 minutes of talk time on 3G networks and up to 450 minutes on GSM networks. Standby time is around 600 hours.

Brew MP is primarily designed for flash based applications and uses Flash Lite 3.1 that will allow developers of those types of apps to more easily work with Brew MP. The downside of Brew MP is it’s small foot print with not much available yet running the newish operating system. Perhaps with the handset being in the budget category it will sell well as a PAYG or be free on a cheap contract hopefully boosting sales for the new HTC device.

Pricing is not known at the moment although we do know it’s shipping on O2 in April.
