HTC 8XT Finally, Windows Phone 8 comes to Sprint in the guise of the stylish HTC 8XT. A close relative of the HTC 8X and 8S, the Sprint version has a colorful though not particularly high resolution display, that unique tapered HTC design and a boldly colored soft touch casing. The phone has a 1.4GHz dual core Snapdragon 400 CPU with a gig of RAM and 8 gigs of internal storage. It has a microSDXC card slot for storage expansion, LTE 4G, and a very capable 8 megapixel rear camera with a backside illuminated sensor and 1080p video recording. Sprint Aug. 2013 HTC 8XT review
HTC 8X The HTC 8X Windows 8 smartphone is one of the best looking and pleasing phones to hold in the hand. The soft touch finish and pyramid design with tapering sides is comfy and grippy, and the phone looks like none other on the market. The HTC 8X has a 4.3" Super LCD II display with Gorilla Glass running at 1280 x 720 and it runs on a capable 1.5GHz dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 CPU with Adreno 225 graphics. The phone has an excellent 8MP rear camera with backside illuminated sensor and it uses HTC's ImageChip. Dec. 2012 AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon HTC 8X review
HTC Titan II Sequels aren't always that exciting, but when you take an already popular and solid smartphone and add exciting features like LTE 4G and a whopping 16 megapixel camera, you've got our attention. The second generation Titan on AT&T still features a 4.7" Super LCD and a 1.5GHz Snapdragon CPU, but the exterior has gotten a cosmetic lift with pleasing and un-slippery soft touch finishes and a curved chin with curved glass. The Titan II has a front video chat camera, and the usual WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and FM radio. But it's that big screen and 16MP camera that really steal the show. April 2012 AT&T HTC Titan II review
HTC Titan HTC knows about livin' large, after all they created the at the time mammoth and ground breaking HTC HD2 and HD7S. Now that big phones are the trend, they've once again made one of the largest screen phones on the market: 4.7". The Titan joins the Samsung Focus S and the Samsung Focus Flash on AT&T as their first wave of Mango smartphones. It has a 1.5GHz Snapdragon CPU, an excellent 8 megapixel rear camera and a front 1.3 megapixel video chat camera. Like the Focus S and Focus Flash, it has HSPA+ 4G 14.4 and the usual WiFi, Bluetooth and a GPS that works with Bing Maps and AT&T Navigator. AT&T Dec. 2011 HTC Titan review
HTC Radar 4G The HTC Radar 4G is T-Mobile's first Windows Phone 7.5 Mango smartphone. This is a second generation Windows Phone with middle of the road specs and a price to match. It's $99 with contract and it has a 1GHz second gen Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU with 8 gigs of storage and HSPA+ 4G. The phone has a front video chat camera that works with Tango and a rear 5 megapixel camera with a fast f2.2 lens with an illuminated backlit sensor. This is a video review. T-Mobile Dec. 2011 HTC Radar 4G review
HTC HD7S AT&T's fourth Windows 7 device comes almost 8 months after they launched their intial trio of Microsoft's completely new smartphone lineup. The HD7 is an improved version of T-Mobile's HD7 with an upgraded 4.3" Super LCD, a tweaked 5 megapixel camera and the "no do" OS update pre-installed. We definitely love the large display for gaming and video watching too with the kickstand deployed. The HD7S is a great Netflix phone, an impressive XBOX gaming smartphone and it handles music beautifully. Since it's a Microsoft OS, you can count on MS Exchange and a solid MS Office suite. As always, we thoroughly enjoy the Metro UI, and HTC's elegant and robust industrial design. AT&T June 2011 HTC HD7S review
HTC Trophy Verizon's first Windows 7 phone is solid: it has HTC's usual elegant styling and good build quality, world GSM roaming capabilities and Redmond's new phone OS that we really like. The Trophy has a 3.8", 800 x 480 capacitive touch screen, a 1GHz CPU, 16 gigs of storage and a 5 megapixel camera. It has 3G on Verizon along with WiFi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth with A2DP stereo and a GPS. Like all Windows Phone 7 smartphone, it has XBOX gaming and Zune music and video services. Verizon May 2011 HTC Trophy review
HTC Arrive Sprint's first Windows Phone 7 smartphone is one of our favorites. The hardware design and quality are typical top-notch HTC and the unique hinge is robust. The Arrive runs the updated version of Windows Phone 7 that adds copy and paste along with a few other improvements, and it has 3G EV-DO. Rev. A. Specs are typical for the platform with a 1 GHz Snapdragon CPU, 16 gigs of storage, WiFi, Bluetooth, a GPS and a 5 megapixel camera that can shoot 720p video. The Arrive has a 3.6" display and a very good QWERTY keyboard. Sprint April 2011 HTC Arrive review
HTC Surround If you're an HTC fan and an AT&T customer, you'll likely be considering the Surround as your first Windows 7 phone. The Surround features HTC's usual excellent build quality and stately design, but it's a tad heavy and thicker than skinny smartphones like the Samsung Focus since it has a slider. No, it's not a keyboard slider but rather a slider for the stereo speaker bar amped up with Dolby Virtual Mobile and SRS Wow. If you want your Zune phone to sing it loud to the masses, the Surround is for you. Otherwise, it's your standard Windows Phone 7 smartphone, and that's not a bad thing given the high baseline specs: 1 GHz Snapdragon CPU, 16 gigs of storage, WiFi, 3G HSDPA, Bluetooth, GPS and a 5 megapixel camera that shoots HD video. AT&T Dec. 2010 HTC Surround review
HTC HD7 The first Windows 7 phone on T-Mobile has a lot in common with the older HTC HD2: it has a huge 4.3" display, 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus lens and dual LED flash and 16 gigs of storage. The software similarities are nil however, since the HD7 runs the brand new, start from scratch, Windows Phone 7 OS. The usual niceties are here including a GPS that works with Bing Maps and TeleNav, WiFi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth and an FM radio. A good start for Windows Phone 7 on T-Mobile. T-Mobile Nov. 2010 HTC HD7 review

 

Android Phones

HTC One M8 We liked the first HTC One quite a lot, and this year's model address many of its (sometimes small) shortcomings while bringing us one of the most gorgeous phone designs yet. The HTC One M8 is or will be available on all major carriers and it runs Android 4.4 KitKat with HTC Sense 6 for a tasteful and light customization of the OS. It's the first phone to ship with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad core CPU for modest speed gains and it has 32 gigs of storage plus a microSD card slot. The 5" full HD LCD is sharp and bright, and the new 5 megapixel front camera will be a hit with the video chat crowd and selfie fans. Is it perfect? Not quite, but it's good enough to win our Editor's Choice award. All major carriers April 2014 HTC One M8 review
HTC One max The HTC One max is largely what we expected: a bigger version of the successful HTC One. That's good news and bad: certainly getting even more HTC One in your hands has appeal if you are fond of phablets or really big phones. The bad news is that we'd hoped HTC would push the envelope and improve specs and features in the 8 months since the 4.7" HTC launched. The One max has a 5.9" Super LCD display running at full HD resolution, a 1.7GHz Snapdragon 600 processor, 32 gigs of internal storage and the same 4MP Ultrapixel camera used in the HTC One. Sprint, Verizon Nov. 2013 HTC One max review
HTC One The HTC One has the perfect storm of smartphone features, from its fast and brand new Snapdragon 600 quad core CPU to its stunning full HD 4.7" display and impressive UltraPixel camera that laughs at darkness. Then there's the striking aluminum casing that gives the iPhone 5 a run for your money and excellent BoomSound stereo speakers up front where they belong. Better yet, it's available on three of the top four US carriers and HTC sells an unlocked GSM edition for those who like their autonomy and unlocked bootloaders. Editor's Choice 2013. AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon and unlocked GSM April 2013 HTC One review
HTC One X+ How do you make a very good thing even better? If it's a smartphone you add a few more cores while cranking clock speed, increase battery capacity and cram in 64 gigs of internal storage. That's the HTC One X+, available exclusively on AT&T in the US. It's the mid-cycle spec bump to keep the phone competitive with the Samsung Galaxy S III, LG Optimus G and other high end phones. The iconic unibody polycarbonate design, superb 4.7", 1280 x 720 Super LCD2 display with 312 ppi pixel density and smooth and reliable performance are here from the One X. But the One X+ moves up to the new NVidia AP37 1.7GHz quad core Tegra 3 CPU, making it faster than both our US One X with the dual core Snapdragon and the international 1.5GHz Tegra 3 One X. AT&T Jan. 2013 HTC One X+ review
HTC Droid DNA Look out Samsung Galaxy Note II, there's a new kid on the block, at least if you're a Verizon Wireless customer, and that's the HTC Droid DNA. The HTC Droid DNA is one of our top smartphones for 2012. It has a slim and elegant design despite the big 5" display. That Super LCD 3 display is an impressive 1920 x 1080 resolution. The Droid DNA is one of the few quad core Snapdragon S4 Android smartphones on the market, and it earns top benchmark numbers. The phone has 16 gigs of storage, an excellent 8 megapixel camera, LTE 4G, NFC and it runs Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean with HTC Sense 4.0+ software on top. Verizon Dec. 2012 HTC Droid DNA review
HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE Is bigger always better? Not for those of you who simply can't stand carrying today's gargantuan phones.The third generation Droid Incredible by HTC may be smaller than the 4.8" Samsung Galaxy S III and other big boys on Verizon Wireless, but it has plenty of top notch features. A sharp 4" Super LCD display running at qHD resolution, a 1.2GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 Krait CPU and a sharp 8 megapixel camera with BSI sensor and simultaneous 1080p plus still photo recording grace the feature list. This is a video review. Verizon July 2012 Droid Incredible 4G LTE review
HTC EVO 4G LTE This is the phone to beat on Sprint. Like the original EVO years ago, it has the right combo of good looks, high quality materials and top off the line features that makes for a true flagship smartphone. As you can guess from the name, this 4.7" Android ICS smartphone has LTE 4G, though Sprint doesn't actually have an LTE network up and running yet. You'll get WiFi and 3G to fall back on until LTE hits your area, and the phone has NFC with Google Wallet that works now. The EVO 4G LTE runs on an extremely fast yet power frugal Snapdragon S4 1.5GHz CPU that benchmarks near the top of our tests. It has 16 gigs of storage and a microSD card slot for expansion. Also on board is HTC's excellent 8MP camera with BSI sensor and a dedicated image processing chip. Sprint May 2012 HTC EVO 4G LTE review
HTC One X It's hard to not fall in love with the HTC One X on AT&T. The polycarbonate unibody design is stunning, the 720p Super LCD wraps around the front of the phone in a show of colors and crispness and the phone is fast thanks to Qualcomm's fourth generation Snapdragon "Krait" 1.5GHz CPU with Adreno 220 graphics. If that's not enough, the 8MP camera has a BSI sensor, fast lens, 1080p video recording with neato options like panorama, slow motion video and simultaneous video and photo recording. Oh, and there's fast LTE 4G with HSPA+ to fall back on, great call quality and more. Editor's Choice 2012. AT&T May 2012 HTC One X review
HTC One S The One line is HTC's new flagship for 2012, and the One S sits at the top of T-Mobile's spring lineup. It features an anodized aluminum unibody design that's incredibly thin, and a very fast Snapdragon dual core 1.5Hz CPU based on the new 28nm process. It has a colorful 4.3" qHD Super AMOLED display and a capable 8 megapixel camera that can shoot photos while also shooting 1080p video. The smartphone has 42 Mbps HSPA+ on T-Mobile's network, WiFi Calling and 16 gigs of storage. T-Mobile April 2012 HTC One S review
HTC Vivid The HTC Vivid is a lovely high end phone with enticing specs and true 4G LTE. Though its 4G LTE launch mate, the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket, shows it up in some, but not all, respects, we can still recommend it, especially for HTC fans. The HTC Vivid it has a 1.2GHz dual core CPU, a lovely 4.5" qHD display and HTC's high end 8 megapixel camera with 1080p video recording. It runs Android OS 2.3 Gingerbread with HTC Sense 3.0 software. AT&T Nov. 2011 HTC Vivid review
HTC Rezound The HTC Rezound is a member of Verizon Wireless' "big three" group of high end Android smartphones for the holiday 2011 season. It joins the Motorola Droid RAZR and Samsung Galaxy Nexus and has top specs: it's the US' first 720p smartphone display, it has a fast 1.5gHz dual core CPU, LTE 4G and a promised upgrade to Android OS 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The phone has excellent build quality and it comes with a set of Beats Audio earbuds in the box. Verizon Nov. 2011 HTC Rezound review
HTC Amaze 4G The Amaze is the improved version of the popular HTC Sensation 4G on T-Mobile. It has a faster CPU, faster 4G and a better camera. This Android smartphone has a qHD Super LCD display and it runs on a 1.5GHz dual core Snapdragon CPU with a gig of RAM and 16 gigs of internal storage. It has a very good 8 megapixel rear camera that can shoot 1080p video and a front 2MP video chat camera. This is a video review. T-Mobile Oct. 2011 HTC Amaze 4G review
HTC EVO Design 4G An affordable EVO with WiMAX 4G and an elegant, high quality design. That's the HTC EVO Design 4G. It has HTC's signature liberal use of metal and soft touch finishes and it feels solid in the hand. The phone has a 4" qHD Super LCD, and that means it's sharp looking and also more pocketable. This $99 with contract phone has a 1.2GHz single core Snapdragon CPU, front video chat camera and a rear 5 megapixel camera with LED flash that can shoot 720p video. Voice quality is good and HTC Sense 3.0 is on board for your UI pleasure. The phone supports the full range of Sprint services including Sprint TV and Sprint Music Plus. Sprint Oct. 2011 HTC EVO Design 4G review
HTC Rhyme HTC and Verizon market this phone to women because it comes in a lovely plum color, is well accessorized and it isn't too huge. It's a stylish unibody phone with a 3.7" 800 x 480 display, a 1GHz single core Snapdragon CPU and dual cameras. This is a 3G phone and it runs Android OS 2.3 Gingerbread. It comes with a dock, earbuds and an LED charm that indicates incoming calls and other notifications. This is a video review. Verizon Oct. 2011 HTC Rhyme review
HTC Wildfire S If you're looking for your first touchscreen smartphone, prefer small phones or just don't want to spend much money (free via T-Mobile.com is hard to beat), the HTC Wildfire S sings its tiny siren song to you. This small, lightweight but stylish phone has all the Android basics, though it's display resolution and CPU are a bit outdated. It feels responsive in everyday tasks though, and we like that it runs Android OS 2.3.3 Gingerbread with HTC Sense, which is newbie-friendly. T-Mobile Aug. 2011 HTC Wildfire S review
T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide The myTouch line has evolved from mid-range Android smartphones to top dog status on T-Mobile. The myTouch 4G Slide is a well-made phone with high ends specs like a 1.2GHz dual core CPU, 768 megs of RAM and an 8 megapixel camera with backlit sensor that takes great photos and 1080p video. If QWERTY hardware keyboards are a must, do check out the 4G Slide. T-Mobile July T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide review
HTC Status HTC and AT&T's affordable and cute QWERTY messenger is the closest you'll get to a Facebook phone. It has a Facebook button that launches the app, and it supports Facebook chat. There's plenty of other social networking and messaging goodness in this compact Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone with HTC Sense software. We like the excellent hardware keyboard, but the 2.6" display is a bit small. The Status has a front video chat camera and a rear 5 megapixel autofocus camera that takes decent shots. The phone has the usual GPS, WiFi and Bluetooth, and it runs on an 800MHz CPU. AT&T July 2011 HTC Status review
HTC EVO 3D The HTC EVO 4G is a hard act to follow. Sprint's former flagship phone was a real crowd pleaser thanks to its at the time fast CPU, large display and 4G. How do you top that? Double the cores while increasing CPU speed, raise display resolution and throw in a 3D display and camera. That's the EVO 3D, a 1.2 GHz dual core Android OS 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone with WiMAX 4G, a qHD4.3" display and a glassless 3D display (don't worry, it does 2D too). The phone is built like a tank, yet it's good looking and it's slim despite the beefy battery inside. If you're looking for the new flagship phone on Sprint, this is it. Sprint June 2011 HTC EVO 3D review
HTC Sensation 4G T-Mobile and HTC's new flagship Android smartphone is hard not to love. It's got a lovely and classy unibody design, the latest Android phone OS and a 4.3" qHD 960 x 540 pixel display vs. the usual 800 x 480. The dual core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon CPU with Adreno 220 graphics keeps things like 1080p video, 3D games and Adobe Flash humming along smoothly and the main 8 megapixel camera can even shoot 1080p video. This is the first US phone to run HTC Sense 3.0, and we give it a thumbs for usefulness and good looks. The Sensation 4G it has 4G HSPA+ and a mobile hotspot feature along with the usual WFi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0 and a GPS. Editor's Choice 2011. T-Mobile June 2011 HTC Sensation 4G review
Droid Incredible 2 HTC's second generation Incredible is a really solid Android smartphone that's eclipsed by flashier big screen 4G phones on Verizon. That doesn't mean it isn't a solid buy, especially if you're looking for a Verizon Wireless phone with GSM capabilities for world roaming. The Incredible 2 has a 4" Super LCD touch screen that's very sharp, a second generation 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, front and rear cameras with 8 megapixels of goodness at the rear, and it runs Android OS 2.2 Froyo with HTC's excellent Sense software. It's good looking and well made too. Verizon May 2011 Droid Incredible 2 review
HTC Thunderbolt The HTC Thunderbolt is Verizon's latest flagship Android smartphone. The Thunderbolt has Verizon's wickedly fast 4G LTE for download speeds ranging from 8 to 15 megs on the phone and sometimes faster when using the WiFi hotspot sharing utility that provides a broadband connection to your notebook, iPad or other device. We love the large 4.3" display and kickstand that lets you kick back and watch streaming movies comfortably and the phone's fast second gen Snapdragon CPU. The 8 megapixel rear camera takes sharp shots and 720p video and there's a front-facing camera as well. The Thunderbolt isn't perfect, but it is one of the top smartphones on the market right now. Verizon March 2011 HTC Thunderbolt review
HTC Inspire 4G AT&T is getting serious with Android now that their iPhone exclusivity is over, and the Inspire 4G is one lovely high end Android phone at a reasonable price. The Inspire 4G has HSPA+ 4G, a sharp 4.3" SLCD display running at 800 x 480 resolution and a second gen 1GHz Snapdragon CPU. The unibody aluminum alloy body is sumptuous and the 8 megapixel camera with dual LED flash does 720p video with aplomb. The Inspire runs Android OS 2.2 Froyo with HTC Sense software. It's quickly become one of our favorite Android smartphones. AT&T Feb. 2011 HTC Inspire 4G review
HTC EVO Shift 4G This is the keyboarded companion to Sprint's wildly successful HTC EVO 4G. Unlike the original EVO, the Shift 4G isn't a top of the line superphone, but rather a solidly built mid to high tier QWERTY Android phone that's well suited to business. It has an 800MHz second gen Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, an 800 x 480 pixel 3.6" capacitive multi-touch display and a 5 megapixel camera. It runs Android OS 2.2 Froyo with HTC Sense software. The Shift has both 3G EV-DO Rev. A and WiMax 4G with Sprint's WiFi hotspot feature. Sprint Jan. 2011 HTC EVO Shift 4G review
T-Mobile myTouch 4G The myTouch 4G is T-Mobile's first high end Android smartphone in that line. It wants to compete with superphones, and that means the T-Mobile G2 and Samsung Vibrant on T-Mobile. The myTouch 4G is made by HTC and it has solid build quality, feels great in the hand and it comes in four colors. The phone has an 800 x 480 multi-touch capacitive display and a 1GHz second gen Snapdragon CPU that keeps Android OS 2.2 Froyo zipping along. Like the myTouch 3G Slide it has newbie-friendly mySense software that may not be pretty but it is indeed helpful without being intrusive. Other goodies include 4G HSPA+, WiFi including WiFi calling and Hotspot features, an FM radio, front-facing video conferencing camera, a 5 megapixel main camera and a GPS with compass. T-Mobile Nov. 2010 myTouch 4G review
T-Mobile G2 The T-Mobile G2 is one of the best Android QWERTY phones on the market. It runs vanilla Android OS 2.2 Froyo, still a rarity on Android phones, and it's fast. Not just in terms of CPU speed, though the 800MHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with GPU really impresses us, but because it has 4G in the form of HSPA+. The G2 is made by HTC and it has a 3.7" multi-touch LCD, one of the best hardware keyboards in the business, WiFi 802.11n, Bluetooth, a GPS, a microSD card slot with an 8 gig card pre-loaded and a 5 megapixel camera that can shoot 720p video. The T-Mobile G2 comes with the full suite of Google Android applications, and we mean everything Google makes. T-Mobile Oct. 2010 T-Mobile G2 review
HTC Aria AT&T's second Android smartphone looks like a lot like the HTC Incredible, only small, much smaller. These days touch screen smartphones are livin' large, so if you want something that easily fits in a pocket, the Aria is one of the few. It's a solid mid-range Android phone with a 3.2" capacitive multi-touch display running at 320 x 480 resolution. The Aria is powered by a capable 600MHz CPU and it runs Android OS 2.1 Eclair with HTC's excellent Sense software. Other amenities include a 5 megapixel autofocus camera, a GPS that works with Google Maps spoken navigation and AT&T Navigator, WiFi and Bluetooth. It might not compete with the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S (Captivate) Android superphone, but at $129 it's easy on the pocket.

T-Mobile MyTouch 3G Slide T-Mobile doesn't sleep when it comes to Android smartphones, and neither does HTC, maker of the intimately named MyTouch 3G and now the MyTouch 3G Slide. The Slide isn't just a MyTouch with a keyboard; it packs a faster CPU, 512 megs of RAM and a higher resolution autofocus camera. The Slide runs Android 2.1 Eclair and it sports an extensive array of custom HTC software that's not quite Sense, though there's plenty of Sense UI in the mix. If you want an Android phone with the latest OS and a hardware keyboard, the Slide is worth a look.

HTC EVO 4G Sprint's tried the magic phone formula a few times, each time with improving results. First we had the Instinct, then the Palm Pre and now we have the HTC EVO; definitely a blockbuster smartphone. The EVO has a huge and lovely 4.3" capacitive multi-touch display much like the HTC HD2 on T-Mobile. But unlike the HD2, the EVO runs Android and is the first phone with 4G WiMAX service. Yummy. The EVO has the best of everything: Android 2.1 with HTC Sense, an 8 megapixel camera, front video conferencing camera, 3G EV-DO Rev. A, a mobile hotspot feature, GPS, WiFi and the usual assortment of Sprint apps and services including Sprint Navigation and Sprint TV.

HTC Incredible Who needs the Nexus One on Verizon? The HTC Droid Incredible is just as much a superphone and it beats the Nexus One with more storage, a higher resolution camera and HTC Sense software on top of Android 2.1. If you don't need a hardware keyboard, the Incredible can easily take on the Motorola Droid too. It features a 3.7" AMOLED multi-touch display, an 8 megapixel camera that actually takes good photos and video, 8 gigs of internal storage and a really sleek design. From it's optical d-pad to the sculpted waterfall back, HTC's latest for Verizon is definitely top notch, and it's fast too thanks to the 1GHz Snapdragon CPU.

Nexus One Google has gotten into the phone market with their first Google-branded Android smartphone. The hardware is actually made by HTC, but the software and user experience are pure Google. This is the first Android phone to run OS 2.1, and will likely be the first to get updates in the future. Google calls this the "super phone" since it has very high end specs like a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU that flies, a 3.7" capacitive AMOLED touch screen, 512 megs of RAM, a 5 megapixel autofocus camera, GPS, WiFi and Bluetooth. It's sold unlocked directly by Google and you can get it in the US for retail or heavily subsidized with a T-Mobile contact. Is it the best phone ever? Read our review to find out.

HTC Droid Eris Launched on the same day by Verizon, we can only imagine the Moto Droid mouthing "say hello to my little friend, the HTC Droid Eris". Were it not for HTC's growing reputation as a top manufacturer of Windows Mobile and Android smartphones, the less hyped Eris might fall through the cracks. The Eris is similar to the HTC Hero on Sprint, but with looks influenced by the HTC Touch. It has a 320 x 480 capacitive touch screen, EV-DO Rev. A, WiFi, a 5 megapixel camera, GPS and Bluetooth. It's compact and light and half the price of the Moto Droid.

HTC Hero (Sprint) Sprint just won't quit launching great smartphones lately. The HTC Hero is the best Android Google OS phone we've seen so far thanks to some help from HTC's own Sense UI software and Sprint's services like Sprint TV and Sprint Navigation. Unlike most Android phones (not that there are many), the Hero syncs not only to Google services but MS Exchange and Outlook too. The Hero features a 3.2", 480 x 320 capacitive multi-touch screen, WiFi, GPS, EV-DO Rev. A fast data and Google's excellent web browser and other goodies.

T-Mobile myTouch 3G Last year's ugly duckling, the T-Mobile G1 has spawned a swan. The myTouch 3G by HTC is T-Mobile's second Google OS Android phone. It's slim, sexy and smaller than the iPhone 3GS.The myTouch 3G is T-Mobile's version of the overseas HTC Magic and it packs the same goodness as the G1 inside: Android 1.5, the app Market, a 528MHz CPU, WiFi, Bluetooth with A2DP stereo and a 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera. It loses the hardware QWERTY keyboard in favor of the slimmer design and Android's on-screen keyboard. But it gains more memory for storage and OS upgrades. One of our favorite phones!

T-Mobile G1 The first Google Android phone is here! The T-Mobile G1, made by HTC, runs Google's open source phone operating system and it sits somewhere between a feature phone and a smartphone. It features 3G, a lovely 320 x 480 color touch screen, GPS, WiFi, thumb keyboard and a 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus lens. The G1 is great for Google-addicts since it syncs with Google contacts and calendar and has push Gmail along with Google Maps. The G1 offers access to the Android Market where you can download applications (many free) to expand the phone's functionality.

HTC Windows Mobile Pro Phones (touch screen, 6.5 and older OS)

HTC HD2 (T-Mobile) T-Mobile has a super-phone on their hands and it's good enough to compete with the Nexus One and Nokia N900. The HD2 has a wondrous 4.3" capacitive multi-touch display and a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, and that means it can stand tall with the best portable media players. Yet it's thin and pocketable and it looks sharp. The HD2 has 3G HSDPA, WiFi, Bluetooth and a GPS. Google Maps, TeleNav, Opera and Blockbuster are on board. The phone supports pinch zooming, has a 5 megapixel camera and a good on-screen keyboard. It runs Windows Mobile 6.5 but you won't see much of it thanks to HTC's Sense UI. Editor's Choice 2010.

HTC HD2 review
HTC HD2 (unlocked GSM) HTC's dream machine is here. Their follow up to the HD makes the HD look old and tired. Think of it as that flat panel and Blu-ray home theater upgrade you've dreamed about. The HD2 has a wonderful 4.3" capacitive multi-touch display, HTC's Sense UI (their update to TouchFLO 3D) and a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU. Windows Mobile 6.5 Pro is under the hood, though HTC improves on most of it, and the smartphone has WiFi, Bluetooth and a GPS. Despite the huge display, the HD2 is only 0.43" thick and it's not that much bigger than the iPhone 3GS. The drawbacks? It's expensive since it's sold as an unlocked GSM phone through importers and there's no US 3G.

HTC Tilt 2 AT&T's last to the race with their version of the HTC Touch Pro2 Windows Mobile Pro smartphone, but they're the first to offer it with Windows Mobile 6.5. The Tilt 2 boasts the same feature set as the Touch Pro2 on the 3 other major US carriers, but it ships with the newer Windows OS for phones and changes the keyboard layout a bit. It has an 800 x 480 touch screen, WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth and an awesome slide-out and tilt QWERTY keyboard. This review includes a 10 minute video review.

HTC Imagio Verizon's got a blockbuster Windows Mobile 6.5 touchscreen phone in the HTC Imagio. The phone features a 3.6" display with HTC's TouchFLO 3D UI, a slim and sexy design and Mobile TV. That's broadcast TV over the air, not streaming video, and it works well. The Imagio also has V Cast Video and Music, a capable non-streaming media player, YouTube, WiFi, Bluetooth, EV-DO Rev. A and a GPS. If that's not enough to keep you entertained, it has a 5 megapixel camera too. We like. This review includes a video review.

HTC Pure AT&T's first Windows Mobile 6.5 Pro smartphone is here with HTC's TouchFLO 3D goodness. This small and light full-featured smartphone features a 3.2" resistive touch screen, a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus lens, very good video playback performance, WiFi, Bluetooth and a GPS all at a reasonable price. It's the close relative to the HTC Touch Diamond2 sold overseas. If you're looking for an HTC WinMo phone with the latest OS that won't break the bank or your pants pocket, the Pure is worth a look.

HTC Touch Pro2 (Verizon) Starting this summer, the HTC Touch Pro2 began making its way around the world. Now three US carriers offer it, Verizon being the latest. This flagship Windows Mobile Pro touch screen phone gives Verizon's smartphone lineup a much needed shot in the arm, and we find it hard not to love the Touch Pro2, no matter how many times it visits our office. It features a roomy sliding keyboard and tilting 800 x 480 display, GPS, WiFi, TouchFLO 3D and GSM world roaming for travels outside the US.

HTC Touch Pro2 (Sprint) Sprint's flagship Windows Mobile Pro phone is here. Joining T-Mobile and eventually all carriers in the US, Sprint has upped the temptation to spend some serious bucks on a serious business phone with a decided fun side. The Touch Pro2 on Sprint delights us as just as much as the unlocked GSM and T-Mobile version did thanks to Sprint's fast EVDO data connection, the large 3.6" high resolution touch screen, capacious offset QWERTY slider keyboard and strong Office and Exchange support. Better yet, the Sprint version adds a 3.5mm stereo jack for those of you who don't think wired is tired.

HTC Touch Pro2 (T-Mobile) In June, we reviewed the unlocked GSM import HTC Touch Pro2 and loved it. Now it's come to T-Mobile, which means two things: a subsidized price and US 3G HSDPA. Yes! The Touch Pro2 is a powerhouse Windows Mobile pro 6.1 touch screen phone. It features a 3.6 inch 800 x 480 pixel display, HTC's TouchFLO 3D user interface spiffying up WinMo, and a tilt-an- slide hardware QWERTY keyboard of the most wondrous proportions. Other niceties include a GPS, 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera, one-touch speakerphone, WiFi, Bluetooth and an SDHC microSD card slot.

HTC Touch Diamond2 Into Windows Mobile touch screen phones or don't want to go with a contract or an iPhone?. HTC's revision of the Touch Diamond offers some impressive specs including a 480 x 800 pixel touch screen and a much improved TouchFLO 3D user interface. The slab design is modern and less plasticky than the first Diamond's and the display is a bit larger at 3.2". This is a quad band GSM unlocked phone with EDGE for data in the US and it has a GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, an SDHC microSD card slot and a 5 megapixel camera.

HTC Touch Pro2 HTC's new flagship QWERTY touch screen slider has just started to hit the overseas market. This import unlocked GSM Windows Mobile Pro 6.1 phone really rocks. Forget the Fuze and original Touch Pro-- this is the real deal with fantastic good looks, a 3.6" 800 x 480 display with haptic feedback, the latest version of HTC's TouchFLO 3D that almost completely remakes Windows Mobile and one of the best hardware keyboards on the market. The Pro2 has a GPS, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, WiFi, 512 megs of flash storage, a microSD card slot and a 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera. Sorry, the import version is EDGE-only in the US, but we're sure US carriers will come out with their own versions sporting 3G.

HTC Touch Pro for Verizon Third time's a charm? We've reviewed the Sprint Touch Pro, AT&T's version as the HTC Fuze and now Verizon's in the game with their own Touch Pro. Like the others, the Verizon Touch Pro features a VGA flush touch screen, slide-out QWERTY keyboard, Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional and many high end trimmings: GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0 and a good 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus lens. It's certainly the slickest Windows Mobile device Verizon has offered, though it's missing some of the multimedia applications found on its cross-carrier competitors.

HTC Touch HD HTC's counter to the iPhone sports some impressive specs including a 3.8" touch screen with a huge 480 x 800 resolution. The HD runs TouchFLO 3D, and is an elegant looking phone in terms of both hardware and software. Think of it as an HTC Touch Diamond with a super-sized display and a very impressive 5 megapixel camera tacked on the back. This is an unlocked GSM world phone that will work in the US, but 3G is overseas-only. It has the usual laundry list of high end features including Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0 with stereo A2DP, a GPS, music player and video with YouTube support.

HTC Fuze The TouchFLO 3D invasion continues, and now we have AT&T's answer to the Sprint Touch Pro with the HTC Fuze. The Fuze has the same set of features, but the casing is classic GSM Diamond, with a gloss black faceted back and angular lines. The Fuze is a quad band GSM phone with triband 3G HSDPA for the US and overseas. It runs HTC's TouchFLO 3D UI on top of Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, and it has a wonderful VGA touch screen. Like the HTC Tilt it replaces, it has GPS, WiFi and Bluetooth with A2DP stereo too. The Fuze has a side-sliding QWERTY keyboard and support for email including push email, SMS and IM.

The Touch Pro, like the Diamond, has a fantastic VGA flush touch screen with TouchFLO 3D reviving tired Windows Mobile's look and feel.

It runs on a 528MHz processor with 288 megs of RAM and 512 megs of flash memory for storage. It sports a 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera with flash, a 5 row slide-out QWERTY keyboard and Windows Mobile 6.1.

US 3G HTC Touch Diamond First Look. It's raining Diamonds here. This time we've gotten a hold of the US unlocked GSM HTC Touch Diamond before its official release. The US version has dual band US 3G HSDPA that works on AT&T's 850/1900 bands. It's also a quad band GSM unlocked world phone with EDGE. Like the Sprint Diamond, it's a little thicker than the original Euro model, but it retains the Diamond-faceted back and overall great looks. The battery is larger than the Euro Diamond, and this Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional phone features TouchFLO 3D, GPS, VGA display, WiFi, Bluetooth and a 3.2 megapixel camera.

Sprint HTC Touch Diamond Officially announced on September 10th, the Sprint HTC Touch Diamond is one of the best Windows Mobile Professional phones Sprint has ever offered. It features a VGA display, 4 gigs of storage, a fast CPU and lots of RAM. The excellent Opera 9.5 web browser and youtube are on board with EVDO Rev. A to back it up. There's also Sprint TV, Sprint Radio, a GPS and a good 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera. Sprint and HTC have answered most of our complaints with the original GSM Diamond, and this version has so far impressed us with its speed, stability and top notch business and multimedia features.

HTC Touch Diamond Here's our full review of HTC's flagship Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional quad band unlocked GSM phone featuring TouchFLO 3D. The Diamond sports a very innovative and attractive UI that makes you feel like you're not using Windows Mobile (for the most part a good thing). Beyond the new interface, the HTC Diamond has jaw-dropping good looks and it's amazingly thin, small and light. Yet somehow HTC managed to fit 4 gigs of flash storage, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth, non-US 3G and a 3 megapixel autofocus camera. The only drawback: there's no US 3G support. But HTC tells us a US version will follow.

The Dual is a quad band GSM phone with US 3G HSDPA and a slide-down 20 key QWERTY keyboard that uses predictive text.

HTC Advantage X7510 The not bigger (thankfully) but somewhat better HTC Advantage should be out next month. We got our hands on a final hardware version with not quite final software for this review. The X7510 is a refresh of the Windows Mobile mini-computer with a VGA 5" touch screen display, GPS, quad band GSM, triband US-friendly HSDPA 3.5G, WiFi, Bluetooth and a 3MP camera. What's new? The tiny hard disk is gone and has been replaced by a 16 gig flash drive, the OS is now Windows Mobile 6.1 and the removable keyboard has been redesigned. The X7510 will only be available through importers in the US unlike last years's X7501 and as ever, it's the MacGyver of mobile devices, doing most everything well.

Verizon XV6900 Verizon's version of the HTC Touch is small, sumptuous and one of the least geeky looking PDA phones on the market. It's nearly identical to the Sprint Touch, varying only in color and software customizations. The 4 ounce XV6900 features a large QVGA touch screen with HTC's finger-friendly TouchFLO UI and Windows Mobile 6 Professional. This Pocket PC phone has a 400MHz processor, 128 megs of RAM, 256 megs of flash memory and a 2 megapixel camera. It's got EVDO for fast data but no WiFi. If you don't need a hardware keyboard, it's definitely worth a look.

Sprint Touch by HTC The GSM Touch made quite a stir earlier this year with its new TouchFLO UI and special, gesture-friendly screen. Not only that, the PDA phone wasn't much bigger than a RAZR, had great looks and weighed only 4 ounces. It wasn't the brightest kid on the block though, thanks to a slow CPU and low memory. Sprint's version answers those shortcomings: their version has a 400MHz CPU, lots of memory (more than the powerhouse Mogul) and EVDO for fast data. Nice! This Windows Mobile 6 Pocket PC phone has a fun side thanks to Sprint TV, Sprint Music Store and the usual good Windows Mobile multimedia support. A 2MP camera and Bluetooth 2.0 are on-board but no WiFi.

AT&T Tilt by HTC Last year we thought the Cingular 8525 was an impressive PDA phone. This year HTC and AT&T show themselves up with the Tilt, which adds a GPS, slide-out and up keyboard, better camera and Windows Mobile 6 Professional. The Tilt whose codename was the HTC Kaiser first shipped overseas as the HTC TyTN II and MDA Vario III. The Tilt is a Pocket PC phone with a touch screen, quad band EDGE, triband 3.5G HSDPA, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0 with AVRC and it has a 3 megapixel camera with autofocus lens. It adds a few AT&T-centric goodies like Cellular Video that keep this business-oriented device from turning dull during downtime.

HTC Advantage X7501 While PDA phones have morphed into phones, or tried to, in the past few years, HTC tries something novel and useful: a PDA phone that's firmly rooted in handheld computing. Looking like a tiny notebook, the HTC Advantage X7501 runs Windows Mobile 6 Professional on a 624MHz processor with 128 megs of RAM, 256 megs of flash ROM and an 8 gig microdrive. It has a VGA display, VGA-out for TV viewing and presentations, detachable QWERTY keyboard, a 3 megapixel autofocus camera, Bluetooth 2.0, WiFi and a full GPS inside. Whew! And there's a quad band unlocked GSM radio with EDGE and triband HSDPA 3G for voice and data. This is the US version, due for imminent release at US retail outlets. A viable and interesting mobile computing alternative to UMPCs and micro PCs.
