HTC Smart - New smartphone running Brew OS
8 January 2010 by Olav Hellesø-Knutsen
HTC today announced the HTC Smart. The first mobile phone from HTC running on Qualcomms operating system Brew Mobile Platform.
HTC started up by making mobile phones with Windows Mobile 5 as the only operating system. In 2008 the G1 Android phone for T-Mobile was launched and several Windows Mobile and Android powered phones has be announced thereafter. Today HTC wants to try another mobile operating system; Brew (Binary Runtime Environment for Wireless) Mobile Platform developed by Qualcomm. We can only speculate why Brew MP was choosen as the OS, but hardware requrements are said to be be less demanding.
The Smart has what HTC calls a intuitive user experience centered around HTC Sense. HTC Sense is a design philosophy and experience built upon the three principles: make it mine, stay close, and discover the unexpected.
