The new mini HD phone from HTC has now been released on a range of third party Orange deals. The HTC HD Mini has already been made available as a SIM Free phone and Phones Limited is now comparing the best deals for this compact new HTC phone.
Online PR News – 14-April-2010 – – The new Mini edition HD phone from HTC has now been launched on the Orange network, this latest release from the smart phones manufacturer encompasses just about all of the features found in the previous HTC HD2 model but packs them into a far smaller frame with a far more pocket friendly 3.2 inch screen.
The HD2 still holds the record for the largest mobile phone touch screen currently available on the market, however many people find the overall size of the phone just a little too big for pockets and handbags, this is where the new HTC HD Mini wins the day.
Replicating the same Windows Mobile operating system alongside a 5.0 mega pixel camera with autofocus the new HD Mini is one of a number of new 'mini' phones to hit the market this year. Sony Ericsson may have just launched their latest Xperia X10 handset but they too are readying the Sony Ericsson X10 Mini and Mini Pro editions to address the demand for smaller smart phones.
It was Nokia that went down this path first by shrinking their Nokia N97 into the new Nokia N97 Mini, the manufacturer claimed that the original model just was not pocket friendly enough and aimed there new 'mini' model at the youth and fashion market.
The biggest achievement that HTC have managed is to squeeze just about all of the features of the previous HD2 model with its massive 4.3 inch touch screen into such a small housing, the only real difference comes in the processing power of the processor which is now a 600MHz chip as opposed to the industry leading 1GHz found in the HD2.
There is a very good reason for this though, the new HTC HD Mini does not use anywhere near the same amount of processing needed to power the massive screen of the HD2 and so the smaller chip is fast and responsive when navigating the phones menus and loading and running applications.
There is a growing number of mobile phones featuring a 3.2 inch touch screen as this is becoming the most comfortable to use, most notably there is competition from the recently launched HTC Legend alsthough this runs on the Android system rather than Windows.
Other rival handsets include the Sony Ericsson Vivaz, Nokia X6 and Nokia N97 Mini, LG GW620 and new Samsung Wave although the S8500 Wave opts for the new Super AMOLED technology.
The HTC HD Mini can now be ordered on a good range of third party Orange deals, this is the first time that this phone has been offered on any of the UK networks with its initial release being as a SIM Free and unlocked handset.
There are further network launches planned for this new phone with O2 and Vodafone expected to be offering the HTC HD Mini over the coming weeks.
