HTC Freestyle Smartphone from AT&T Wireless : HTC Mobile previously announced at the 2011 AT&T Developer Summit, the HTC Freestyle Smartphone. The HTC Freestyle mobile phone is the first of a new generation of quick messaging Smartphones from AT&T designed to run on Brew Mobile Platform. By installing Brew MP across quick messaging phones, which traditionally have had operating systems specific to each Smartphone maker, software developers will be able to write an application and generally be able to offer it to Brew Mobile Platform-based phones from AT&T. Specifically, Brew MP allows AT&T and developers to more easily offer Smartphone applications to customers who want a full-featured messaging handset.|
The new HTC Freestyle mobile phone from AT&T Wireless features a premium design with a 3.2-inch touchscreen display clad in an aluminum unibody construction. The HTC Freestyle Smartphone is also the first quick messaging handset to feature the HTC Sense experience with customizable widgets and the HTC FriendStream app for social networking integration, a full HTML internet browser and 3.2 megapixel digital camera.
