Airtel HTC Smart: A Smart 3G Touchscreen Phone for Budget Conscious Buyers
By on March 30th, 2010

Following closely on the heels of iPhone 3GS launch in India, Bharti Airtel has announced that it will be launching the HTC Smart in India.

Unlike most of its more feature packed siblings, the HTC Smart is not powered by Android or Windows Mobile. HTC has instead opted to go with Qualcomm Brew. Smart is a pleasant looking device featuring a 2.8-inch resistive display and a three mega-pixel fixed-focus camera.

One of the main attractions of this pretty little handset is Scenes, which are essentially different phone configurations that reflect different moods in your daily self. The user interface (UI) bears all the hallmarks of a HTC phone. It is charming and simply to use. The panel based UI does a good job at providing quick access to stuff that you require, while the contact manager neatly clubs together SMS, e-mail and Facebook communications.

Airtel will be selling the HTC Smart for Rs. 9,900, which is reasonable for a capable budget smartphone with 3G support.

While designing Smart, HTC obviously paid a lot of attention affordability. However, don’t let that fool you into thinking that Smart is an inferior device. If you are looking for a 3G enabled budget smart phone, then this may be just be it.
