Here’s an interesting situation, you’re late for getting out of the house and as you finally pick up your tote you notice you can’t find your phone; it’s nowhere to be found. Now, imaging walking over to your PC, typing in the command HDDesire and checking the right box. Almost immediately, the phone’s position appears within your home – it might have been under your coat or in your tote, but there it is and you can go on your way.
That’s the way it is with HTC’s A9192 Inspire Smartphone. It is so smart that if it is lost, it can find itself, all you have to do is ask. Of course, it might also have something to do with the Qualcomm 1 GHz second generation Snapdragon engine that drives the A9192 plus its Android 2.2 operating system. Further, the high-contrast display allows you to not only have access to quality video, but, with the proper application, you can use the A9192 to watch the latest movies on the high-contrast display.
The A9192 features as much as six hours talk-time and about 13 days of standby time, although you will probably find that you leave it charging when you are not out. Six hours, though, is actually excellent when you think of all this smartphone can do.
For example, the A9192 operates in the quad-band services offered by AT+T and T-Mobile’s GSM and HSPA+ services. The frequencies include 800, 850, 1800 and 1900, as well as the 850, 900, 1900 and 2100 MHz. Interestingly, devices that operate in this band usually can operate GPRS and EDGE, as well as GSM. CDMA devices such as those used by Sprint and Alltel don’t operate. Access to the quad-band frequencies open several interesting features that you usually don’t think about. For example, by operating in the quad-band frequency range, you have access to more bandwidth this translates into more capability.
For example, the quad-band frequencies give you access to the full range of WiFi (Wide Fidelity) 802.11 Internet ability. This means the A9192 recognizes 802.11 a/b/g/n. This may seem like jargon, which it is, but it is also a standard that has been agreed upon by the wireless industry. So that each level builds on the ones below it and this means that while an a-level device may only recognize slower network operations, devices which understand b and g-level can not only operate in public hotspots – usually b or g or both – and they can offer the same capabilities to other devices. If they offer the full range of frequencies, it means they cannot only operate at higher speeds because frequencies can be doubled for transmitting or receiving data but, with the right option, the n-device can offer a special option that allows you to set the A9192 up as a wireless hotspot.
The A9192 carries its big, high-contrast screen in a reasonably sized package that is 4.84 inches by.46 inches by 2.68 inches. It weighs in a only 5.76 ounces. In other words, it is quite a package in a small size that not only supports microSDHC cards of 16 GB or more, but also will charge through its high-definition interface capable.
The high-definition capability of the high-contrast screen means that with the right app you can have a rewarding video experience that features built-in Dolby Mobile Surround and SRS Virtual Sound capability. Since you are using Android apps, you also have access to any social media site offered by Google as well as Facebook, YouTube and more.
One key application that you will find you won’t do without is HTC’s Desire HD. This not only gives you true GPS and mapping, but also sets up the mapping so that it is always oriented in the right direction. The Desire HD is also the features that identifies where our A9192 is located and the same application lets you watch all of the latest blockbuster videos in the right orientation thanks to the operating system and servos that keep the video in the right position.
Finally, the A9192 has a high-quality automatic 8 MP camera that lets you take native 720p model automatically. It is a nice feature.
