One of the most appealing factors of the HTC smartphones are the creative names they receive -- Amadeus, Monet, Blue Angel, Apache, and so on -- but they often get renamed and rebadged under any number of their affiliates.
While HTC may have once been a relatively unknown name in the mobile phone industry, since it manufactured phones for other companies under other brand names, it has since carved out a sizable piece of the smartphone pie.
Available through Verizon Wireless, the HTC Droid Incredible features a unique design, a very large touchscreen display, and plenty of horsepower to perform just about any task you require from your chosen smartphone.
The Sense user interface by HTC makes for a very good user experience, but the editors were particularly impressed with the "ultra-fast, extremely capable smartphone that has the guts and gleam to go the distance."
Motorola and HTC seem to have put genuine thought into the user experience, with Motorola even addressing several of the minor issues (flat keys, clunky exterior) with the Droid X in the design of the Droid 2.
Based out of Taiwan, High Tech Computer (HTC, for short) manufactures a wide range of mobile handsets with a distinct specialization in smartphones and PDA phones that run in a Windows-based environment.
While full mobile themes can offer homescreen customizations, new icons, and new menu layouts, sometimes you only need to get a new mobile phone background to change the look and feel of your HTC Mogul.
Also known by its HTC Titan codename, the HTC Mogul ran on Windows Mobile 6.1 and was compatible with the high-speed EVDO (Evolution Data Optimized) network of Sprint for its wireless data capabilities.
In fact, the aforementioned Microsoft page notes that the Touch Pro 2 from HTC, which is available through Sprint in the United States, has hardware that is compatible with a Windows Mobile 6.5 update.
More recently, we've been introduced to highly fashionable touchscreen phones like the HTC Touch Diamond and Samsung Instinct, as well as touchsreen QWERTY phones like the Palm Centro and LG Voyager.
