HTC Desire (HTC Bravo) - In Depth



Unofficial data and images of the HTC Bravo have circulated for months and it seems that the time has finally come for its presentation to the media . The mobile will eventually receive the name of HTC Desire and its debut takes place, as expected, at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

Many of the specifications rumored in recent weeks are confirmed , such as the processor, the operating system or the resolution of the camera . From an aesthetic point of view , it is quite reminiscent of the unlucky HTC Google Nexus One .


Display and connectivity

The capacitive screen with AMOLED technology measures 3.7 inches . It offers a WVGA resolution of 480 x 800 inches . It is multi-touch , that is, it supports the pressure of at least two fingers at the same time when  executing some functions, such as zoom or scroll . With the accelerometer , the content is displayed both vertically and horizontally automatically when the phone is rotated. ALSO it has a proximity sensor that reduces the power consumption of the terminal when not in use. Add an optical trackball to the controls, which replaces the traditional mouse.

In 3G , it runs over HSDPA at 900 and 2,100 MHz , with a data transfer rate of up to 7.2 Mbps and in HSUPA , it reaches a maximum of 2 Mbps . The wireless connectivity is complete with WiFi 802.11 b / g and Bluetooth 2.1 with stereo profile A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile). It is a protocol that defines how an audio stream propagates between two Bluetooth devices and is capable of doing it in mono and in stereo .

As for the playback of audio files , it is compatible with MP3, MP4, AAC +, WAV and WMA9 and video with H.263, H.264, WMV9 and DivX .

Among the rest of the extras we find a GPS tuner, a stereo FM radio with RDS, a digital compass, a G - Sensor, an ambient light sensor and voice notes .


Operating system and battery

The platform in charge of managing the above elements will be Android , to the joy of many. The operating system Google is known for its efficiency and agility , which together with the power of your processor ensures smooth navigation through the menu. It also stands out for its high level of customization . The administration of the widgets is up to the user, who only has to drag the different icons across the screen to determine their situation. The user interface corresponds to HTC Sense, designed by HTC itself .

At the moment, the Taiwanese manufacturer does not appear to have marketing plans in the United States .

Now, if I know you say it with good intention, but I already said, reorganizing is relative without stopping doing some things

It is as if they told a bricklayer to build a house by himself in a week and they said, well, it is a matter of organizing
