Affordable 3.2-inch Android
HTC has announced yet another addition to its "affordable Android" smartphone lineup, the HTC Explorer. Based on the same Qualcomm chipset as the HTC Wildfire S, this 3.2-incher should be even more affordable due to its tuned down specs.

The Explorer is pretty compact with 102.8x57.2x12.9mm dimensions and features a 3.2-inch 320x480 screen. As noted, the hardware is exactly the same as the one found in the HTC Wildfire S, so it features Qualcomm's MSM7227 chipset with 600MHz Scorpion CPU and Adreno 200 GPU. The rest of the specs include 512MB of RAM, 90MB of internal storage and microSD card slot, 802.11bgn WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0 and A-GPS. It also features a 3.15 MP back camera with autofocus.

The new HTC Explorer smartphone is running Android 2.3.5 OS backed by HTC's own Sense 3.5 UI. It comes with a 1230mAh battery and will be available in Active Black and Metallic Blue color choices. The HTC Explorer should appear in retail in October with a suggested retail price of €199 in Europe.
