AT&T HTC Freestyle Hands On (Video)

Advertisement

The HTC Freestyle for AT&T is essentially an HTC Smart, but for the US. The Freestyle and Smart uses HTC’s Brew MP platform which is intended to provide those that aren’t quite ready for a smartphone with a device that acts like a smartphone. Seem strange? It is, though perhaps there is a market for this kind of device. In this video we take a look at the Freestyle and find that the operating system is pretty similar to Android in a lot of respects. Despite it only having a 528MB CPU and 256MB of RAM, the device felt fast. As a reminder that the Freestyle is not a smartphone, HTC has left out the WiFi. That said, you’ll be able to pick up this sort-of-smart-but-dumb phone for $50.
