HTC Freestyle and Inspire 4G Launched

Posted on Friday, Jan 7 2011 on 07:00 AM

As expected HTC officially launched its Inspire 4G at CES today as well as its first Brew MP device, the Freestyle. Surprisingly for a HTC handset the Inspire will be running the old 2.2 build of Android but it will offer 4G speeds with HSPA+ connectivity. The smaller Brew MP on the other hand will be first in a new generation of "quick messaging phones" enabling software developers to make more fully featured messaging phones with smartphone like applications.

The Inspire will feature a 4.3" WVGA super LCD capacitative touchscreen, an 8mp camera with 2x LED flash which can take HD video and 4GB of internal memory. It will be powered by a 1GHz process backed up by 768MB of RAM and will run Android 2.2 with latest version of the HTC Sense overlay. It also comes with a built-in AT&T hotspot for up to four devices. There is a downside for 4G fans though as the Inspire will only work on HSPA+ and not the carrier's LTE network.

With a 3.2" screen the Freestyle packs some fairly standard hardware for a feature phone but it would seem the main selling point of the device will be its ability to deliver more sophisticated apps. It features a full HTML browser, 3.2mp and operates on UMTS/HSDPA: 850/1900 MHz and EDGE: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz.

For a feature phone the 528MHz processor is reasonable and it does have 256MB of RAM. There's also 512MB of ROM with a micoSD card slot for expanding the memory.
