We've barely gotten a glimpse at HTC's budget-conscious Explorer, but the manufacturer seems keen on giving us a few more. They posted a new preview video on their YouTube channel yesterday, utilizing the "quietly brilliant" branding they've been employing for quite some time. The breezy video shows off the value smartphone's assets, and will probably be appearing on American commercial blocks sometime soon. The Explorer isn't going to end up at the top of any superphone lists any time soon, but then it isn't meant to. Sharing a lot of physical traits with the HTC Wildfire S and other budget phones, this little guy features a 3.2-inch screen with a diminutive 320 x 480 resolution and a depth of half an inch. The CPU is clocked at 600MHz, and even the 3 megapixel camera could fill up the 512 MB of internal memory quickly. Check out the official ad below: [youtube Q_adFhohQ94] What HTC's target customers are likely to care about is the software/interface, and on that front, the Explorer delivers. As shown in the video, the phone has the latest version of HTC Sense, 3.5, with all the spiffy widgets and animations that come with it. Underneath it's thankfully running Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
