HTC Ports Sense to the Brew Mobile Platform — Builds the Smart

HTC has proven its desire to be a multi-platform phone maker, and it’s announced a new phone that brings the Sense interface to the Qualcomm (s qcom) Brew Mobile Platform. Brew is the platform used on millions of feature phones, and integrating it with the HTC Sense interface further blurs the distinction between feature phone and smartphone.

The HTC Smart is a touch phone that looks like many HTC devices on the market. It uses touch widgets to customize the user experience. I guess you could say that the Smart brings the Brew platform into the smartphone age. Brew makes it possible to produce cheap feature phones due to the low cost of the platform, and this brings Sense technology to a much cheaper class of products.

Further details about the Smart will be forthcoming during the CES.
