Phone debuts in China. Plans elsewhere unknown
HTC is nearing the launch of a new dual-SIM smartphone in its native China. The T328w Wind is powered by a Qualcomm 1GHz single core processor and a four-inch 800x480 screen. It will ship with Android 4.0, making it close in some respects to the One V.
The Wind will sport a five-megapixel rear-facing camera. As with many of its more recent smartphones, HTC has integrated Beats Audio and SRS processing for music fans.
The dual SIMs will make the phone appealing in eastern Europe and Asia, where owners like the flexibility of switching between two or more carriers to minimize call and data costs.
The Wind will come in a choice of colors including black, white, pink, and blue. HTC has priced the phone at 2,000 yuan ($317 USD). HTC has not indicated when it intends to launch the Wind in China, or if it has plans for the phone in other countries. [via xda.cn]
