HTC, $179 redbullmobile.com.au
★★★ Bucking the trend towards big screens is this handset that comes with a 3.2-inch touchscreen and a modest 108g body to boot. The HTC Explorer is a basic prepaid phone that uses a 600MHZ processor to run Google
Android Gingerbread software and HTC’S Sense applications, while a threemegapixel camera fits on its
back for quick snapshots. The phone also offers a GPS chip for easy mapping on the go, though users may want to buy and add their own Microsd storage as this phone only offers a 90MB memory. It’s available with year-long Red Bull Mobile access for $366.
