I Got More Bravo For You

38

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.

    The Bravo has more RAM than the nexus one actally.

    Nexus has 512mb

    Bravo (desire) has 576 MB

      Hmm. Honestly, the Nexus seemed faster to me.

      • david1171

        But of course, it doesn’t have that huge clunky Sense UI on it.

    I’d be thrilled if this made its way to T-Mobile US. Just wondering though, you mention the unit being black, is the appearance of the Bravo you were shown different from that of the Desire (which seems to be a somewhat metallic looking carbon/brown-ish color)? The early pictures, like the one you use in this article, of the (prototype?) Bravo make it look almost like its a black plastic or something. I really disliked the appearance of the MyTouch’s shiny, plastic body and it would be such a shame if T-Mobile were to actually release the Bravo here only to change the way it looks.
    Thanks for the info, you’ve re-ignited my hopes for this phone coming my way!

    Nicholas: So the HTC reps have essentially confirmed what you reported earlier… that this is coming to T-Mobile US? If so that is really, really great news. Do you have any information regarding a US release date? I think you originally reported that it was going to drop in late April. Any confirmation / updates? Oh… please keep the great news about a phone like this coming to T-Mobile coming, it gives us dejected Nexus One wannabe customers hope!
