HTC Ville Coming to T-Mobile; ‘HTC Family’ Tipped

Besides the introduction of the Titan II for AT&T, HTC was fairly quiet at CES — no doubt reserving its best devices for either dedicated events or a Mobile World Congress debut next month. We’ve just learned that, somewhat unsurprisingly, T-Mobile will beging carrying the slim, Ice Cream Sandwich-powered HTC Ville this spring. We say somewhat unsurprisingly because on the one hand, T-Mobile has a history of carrying high-end HTC hardware, but on the other hand, the quad-core HTC Edge (Supreme?) is also waiting in the wings. Ville has been leaked as a 1.5GHz dual-core, sub-eight millimeter handset with a 4.3-inch qHD display and point-and-shoot quality camera.

In other HTC news, the company will be introducing a service known as HTC Family, to complement other upcoming initiatives such as HTC Read and HTC Play. Family apparently revolves around a Wall wherein loved ones can leave either personal or canned messages for one another as well as coordinate family events. The service also allegedly includes a geolocation feature which allows members to track one another and post their whereabouts to the wall — which also serves as a sort of digital posterboard for sharing pictures or other documents. Expect more details on both the HTC Ville as well as HTC Family at MWC in Barcelona.
