HTC Wind Budget-Priced Dual-SIM Android Tipped for China


When it comes to Android phones and HTC, the majority of our attention recently has been directed towards the manufacturer’s One-series of smartphones. With runaway benchmark figures like we’re seeing for the One XL, it should be no surprise just why we’ve been keeping an eye on them. These aren’t the only Androids HTC is working on, though; we’ve been catching bits and pieces about the Droid Incredible 4G, and today we get to look at yet another model, an Ice Cream Sandwich handset with possible dual-SIM capabilities.

The HTC Wind, as we’re hearing this handset, also known as model T328w, be called, is an interesting mix of aging hardware and brand new software. With specs like a single-core 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, and a 4-inch WVGA display, it feels like the Wind might be more appropriate coming out this time last year. Despite those limitations, HTC will supposedly be hooking the Wind up with all its latest software, including Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, Beats Audio, and Sense 4.0a.

The good news is that the absence of cutting-edge hardware should help keep the Wind’s cost down, with an off-contract price that’s supposed to be just over $300. If the mention of a dual-SIM phone has you thinking you won’t likely see this one hit the US, you’re probably right; for now, the HTC Wind is on its way to China. There’s no word just yet on if HTC is hoping to introduce it to other markets, as well.
