HTC Mega: A New Candy Bar phone

htc-megaAppears to be a Good Release

The HTC Mega is a touchscreen phone that seems to be a fairly good release. The true functionality of this phone will not be seen until it is made available in the public but as for what has been released about it, it looks to be a good phone. It is not a significantly special phone; it does not have any considerable features that differentiate itself from the pack but that does not take away the fact that it is a reasonably good release. Unfortunately, not having a differentiating feature often dooms a mobile phone into mediocrity. For the HTC Mega, only time will tell if it will suffer the same fate as a lot of other mobile phones that preceded it.

Its Look

The HTC Mega, from what can be deduced from the limited amount of information released about it, has a candy bar form. This means that it is a typical flat tablet-like mobile phone with a 2.8-inch touchscreen phone. This touchscreen can display 240 x 320 pixel resolution. From the general looks of this new touchscreen phone, there will be no significant difference, in terms of looks, from other touchscreen phones. This means that this mobile phone is a little on the boring side, and might not attract consumers enough to generate sufficient sales.

Its Functions

This quad-band GSM phone does have a fair bit of functions though, which include a 3.0-megapixel camera that has the ability to capture photos and videos, high-speed 3G data, WiFi connectivity, A-GPS, stereo Bluetooth, an FM radio, and a microSDHC / microSD card slot. It also runs on Windows Mobile, email capabilities, SMS / MMS, a plethora of call features and other applications typically seen in a mobile phone.

This is a new mobile phone that does not really have any significant, differentiating feature. On its own though, it is a fairly good release. It is only when compared to others that it will face a significant challenge.
