HTC has put the quality of their phones into a really small form factor at a really great price. The Freestyle has a 3.2 inch screen that’s actually pretty easy to read, despite being a fairly small phone. The icons are large enough for most everyone to be able to read and understand easily. It has built-in GPS with turn-by-turn instructions, it plays music in stereo even over Bluetooth and a 3.2 megapixel camera/camcorder. The talk time is really good, at around 7 hours. There’s a MicroSD slot to allow up to 32GB of extra storage.

The operating system is Qualcomm’s Brew OS, and HTC has put their “Sense” skin over it. HTC Sense is on all their phones, I use it on my HTC phone and love it. It adds some nice interface touches and keeps it simple and elegant.

In addition to Bluetooth, the phone also has 3G connectivity for internet including browsing and social networks. The price is right, on Amazon it’s a penny, with no data plan required.
