Images of the HTC Pico!
The Pico doesn’t look like a high end phone, and may be the yet unannounced HTC Glamour, which was meant to be a fashion conscious phone targeted at people of the female persuasion. The Pico is a low end Android device from HTC looks to be a step below the HTC Bliss which is expected to launch on Verizon this fall. Some new age marketing crap may be involved which includes a rough covering for better grip, preinstalled app “calming wallpapers” which features, calming wallpapers (whatever that means), preinstalled apps for shopping and caloriesthe “Charm Indicator” which is a cube that blinks every time you get a message or a call so women can easier find their phone in their handbag.
SO the Glamour / Bliss / Pico has emerged in China, it’s an interesting looking little device, with a 3.2″ HVGA 480×320 touchscreen. There’s a 5MP camera on back, with a 1230mAh battery for power. With 900/2100MHz 3G bands enabled, this may not be for the US market at this point. Leaked images suggest that it will hit the Chinese market first, and it has a rather peculiar accessory, Not quite sure how this works, but it’s an external indicator to alert to messages and missed calls.
The spec sheet looks quite good
Although it’s a minimum level smartphone, there’s a twist, HTC Sense Zero? Android GingerBread to be determined? I can only speculate as to what that means, is this some sort of cut down GingerBread build to allow it to run on a device with a smaller rom capacity. With it’s cute and familiar design, the Pico will help raise awareness of the HTC brand in a very large market for what should be a budget price. How do you like the look of the Pico?
