Today I got the chance to meet up with two HTC reps that were in the Portland area. With them they had a few new toys. One of them was the HTC HD 2. Which looks great, for a Winmo device with TouchFLO 3D. It has a dualcore processor, so faster then even the Nexus. They did inform me that they are working on releasing a similar device, running Sense UI sometime next fall. Another toy they had, was the Bravo.
The Bravo they had was running Sense UI. There have been a lot of speculation reguarding that if it is coming to T-Mobile, will it have Sense UI? HTC told me that they have been pushing Sense UI on T-Mobile for a while. When the Mytouch 3G was first released, they planned it on having Sense UI. T-Mobile however, disagreed and wanted 1.5 put on it. Shame. I asked about the name issue with the Bravo. One day it’s the Bravo, other the Desire. They say the name will vary depending on the carrier. It will be on T-Mobile U.K. as the Desire. T-Mobile U.S. as the Bravo. They are pushing T-Mobile with putting Sense UI on it. T-Mobile already has stock Android on the G1 and Mytouch 3G. MotoBLUR on the Cliq and Samsungs Cube Android on the Behold II. With all this said, I see Sense in T-Mobile’s future.
Back the Bravo, the phone is a really incredible device. It’s running 576MB of RAM while the Nexus One has only 512MB of RAM. However, the Nexus to me seemed a little bit more smoother, due to the fact the Bravo is running Sense UI. The phone was slim and felt great in the hand. All in all, it’s a Nexus One but black and different button arrangements. I was going to make a video of the device, but was not allowed. I’m to get more information as soon as I can. From what I saw today, I think Android users will be excited if and when this device hits the U.S.
