HTC the smartphone maker has launched HTC Explorer. It comes with the Android OS. Its newest offering in this burgeoning space is the affordable HTC Explorer. Targeted at the entry-level customers. HTC Explorer is how it seems to be a clone of every other entry-level smartphone in the market. It is cute looking and its rubberised back fits snugly in your palm.

It has modest 3.15 MP camera and The video capture is in MP4 format with 480×720 pixels. The LCD screen is pretty good, although a bit small at just a little over 3″ across, and with pixel dimensions of 320×480.

The video playback supports most video formats including XviD, AVI, and MP4, but 720p and higher videos are a no-go. The battery lasts surprisingly long considering it has a 1230 mAh piece. HTC’s newest entrant has a simple user interface and speedy response. The HTC Explorer has some stiff competition in the form of the Samsung Galaxy Y, which offers a faster CPU at a price point that’s Rs 2500 lower, but sacrifices a GPS and opts for an inferior camera.
