New Forum Added for HTC HD Mini
We’ve added a new forum for the HTC HD Mini, which was announced this week at Mobile World Congress. The device won’t be available in Europe until April, but we’ve opened a General forum so that you can begin talking about it immediately.
The HD Mini is HTC’s attempt to please those that are excited by the HD2 but want it in a smaller form factor. The HD Mini includes the same Sense UI that is found on its big brother. In terms of specs, the HD Mini is HTC’s first device with Windows Mobile 6.5.3. It has a 600MHz CPU with 384MB of RAM and 512MB of ROM. The camera on back is 5.0 megapixels, but has no flash. Like the HD2, the HD Mini has a capacitive multitouch display, although it’s HVGA resolution and is 1.1″ smaller. For more on the HD Mini, check out HTC’s website.

Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
