HTC Willow pictures leakedby Gareth Mankoo
A lower priced, more powerful smart phone has finally got some hype. Thanks to the tactful marketing strategies of HTC, who will probably have a fantastic premier day clash with Sprint (who are always oozing out with goodies on Sundays). This steal of images displays a rather ordinary QWERTY phone with a 2 megapixel camera. It has a lot of power behind that humungous form factor, thanks to a 528 MHz Qualcomm processor, 128 MB RAM and 256 MB storage. It’s said that the battery of this one is too large, but clear can we be on insisting that size has never mattered for HTC phones. What matters is the functionality. However, looking at the Willow I have started doubting their style sense as well.
The HTC Willow may breathe fresh air on the 7th of June, which as I said earlier may be the same day we see a new Sprint. It is likely to be priced at $149.
