HTC mini, a handset for your cellphone

By / 01.28.13

The idea is that instead of pulling the five-inch monster out of your pants to take a call, you pull the HTC mini out of your shirt pocket instead. What you get for your money is a phone that takes calls, shows text messages and emails, and can serve as a remote while paired with your phone if your phone is hooked up to a TV>

To be fair, for people who toss their phone in a briefcase or purse and don’t want to root through it when it starts ringing, this might be useful. And currently, it’s only available in China, which has a tendency towards overkill when it comes to putting phones on phones anyway.

Still, we had to spend a little time to confirm from multiple sources that this wasn’t just an Onion article. There are no US release plans. Yet.

About Dan Seitz... Dan Seitz is a semi-professional nerd (he'll have to code a homebrew game for the NES before he goes pro). He grew up fiddling with video game systems, computers, cameras, and other technology you should never hand to an eight-year-old if you want it back in pristine condition. Currently, he lives in Boston with his girlfriend, her cat, a Shih Tzu, and far too many objects with processors.
