  • The Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional-based HD mini is a compact version of the 4.3in.-screen HD2. The 3.2in. HD mini lacks the AMOLED screen of its Android cousins, but supports tethering over Wi-Fi, which the Legend and Desire do not. When you remove the back cover, the bright yellow innards are 'an unexpected surprise' according to HTC.
