HTC seems intent on building a phone for just about everyone, and the upcoming HTC Explorer — nee HTC Pico — appears to be targeted to either the casual or budget-minded user. With a rumored 600MHz processor, 3.2-inch HVGA display, 384MB/512MB RAM/ROM, and five-megapixel camera, the Sense 3.5-skinned Explorer looks destined to fill the role currently occupied by the Wildfire line.

Explorer, powered by Gingerbread, should arrive in both black and blue, probably at nearly free on contract when purchased through a carrier. While there’s a chance it will be introduced at HTC’s NYC event tomorrow, we still anticipate that to focus on US-specific devices like the upcoming Rhyme (Bliss) and Vigor on Verizon. Either way, a fall release seems likely.
