HTC Runnymede Poses for Close-up Press Shot – “That’s One Big White Boy”
Two weeks ago we brought you some info and a small pic of HTC’s up-and-coming Runnymede (who comes up with these names?) device. The device which is set to feature an “all-round mind-blowing multi-media experience,” is equipped with one of HTC’s largest smartphone screen sizes to date, 4.7″! While I envisioned a behemoth of a phone, it wasn’t until PocketNow got their hands on a close-up press shot that I found myself saying “That’s one big white boy!” The Runnymede and its 4.7″ screen brings into question “how big is too big,” for a smartphone? I’m starting to feel like smartphones are becoming tablets, while tablets are becoming monitors, while monitors are becoming TVs and — my eyes hurt.
The Runnymede seems to be filled with many “what were they thinking” specs. Besides the gigantic screen size, it will only be sporting an 800×480 WVGA resolution, it will have a 1.5 GHz processor but only a single core, it’s going to be sold in two different storage capacities (16GB/32GB), and to top it all off — it’s white, with beats by Dre!? I’m prophesizing an Eminem commercial! On a more sane note, it is supposed to have some kick-ass camera hardware.
So what do you think about the HTC Runnymede, and do you have any interest in this big boy? Sound off in the comments and let me know what you think.
