SlashGear editor Chris Davies was recently lucky enough to get some hands-on experience with HTC’s recently announced HTC HD Mini handset, this handset runs Windows Mobile 6.5.3.
He posted a brief video showing the handset’s physical design, the video can be seen at the end of this post and also shows us a glimpse of the handset’s Sense UI which looks extremely responsive.
One strange thing about this handset is that beneath the battery cover is a bright yellow coloring, there seems to be no reason for this but certainly worth the mention, the SIM and microSD memory card slots are accessible under this cover, they are not hidden under the handset’s battery.
Given that Windows Phone 7 was revealed at MWC 2010 yesterday it is quite odd to see a 6.5.3-based handset revealed at the same time, that said HTC’s UI keeps the handset feeling fresh and intuitive.
The handset will launch in April 2010, prior to this there should be plenty of detailed reviews of the handset, we will keep you posted as these emerge.
