HTC is in the forefront of modernizing Windows Mobile and they're the driving force behind the hardware of most Android phones (and a new UI as of recently). They're not showing any signs of backing down on either platform and seem to have two new entry-level handsets under way, one for each OS - the HTC Mega and HTC Click.

The HTC Click is yet to be announced but that didn't stop the Leak Fairy from bringing us photos and specs. It's a touchscreen bar, roughly the same size as the HTC Magic - a bit shorter, a bit wider and just as thick. It runs Android OS ver. 1.5 (a.k.a. Donut) and lacks Sense UI, which probably indicates it will be a "Google Experience" phone.

The rest of the specs of the HTC Click include a microSD slot, a 3.5mm audio jack and a 1100mAh battery. There's also the standard miniUSB port. We're not quite sure what resolution the camera shoots in but it's obvious it doesn't have a flash.

The touchscreen on the HTC Magic is bigger than the one on the Click but we're not sure by how much (we guesstimate it's about 2.8"). The typical Android buttons are available bellow the display, but the trackball was replaced by a D-pad - making the HTC Click the second Android phone with a D-pad ever (the first is the Samsung I7500 Galaxy).

The second HTC phone for today is the HTC Mega. Don't get confused, the "mega" here doesn't stand for "mega expensive", quite the opposite actually. You can say it's the HTC Touch 3G freshened up. It has the same wireless capabilities - quad-band GSM/EDGE and dual-band HSPA (up to 7.2Mbps), Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0 and GPS.

The biggest change is the OS - Windows Mobile 6.5. Physically, it's almost the size of the Touch 3G, but the HTC Mega is almost 2 mm thinner - 104x55x12.8 mm. It has the helpful home, menu and back keys and a touch zoom bar like on the Touch Diamond2. The rest of the specs are almost identical as well - the same 528MHz CPU, RAM got bumped up to 256MB, a 2.8" QVGA touchscreen, with 3.2 fixed-focus camera and microSD card slot. Even the battery is the same at 1100mAh.

The HTC Click will be available for 300 dollars (210 euro) contract-free (or so the rumor has it). HTC Mega is again rumored to come at the pocket-friendly 300 dollars again contact-free and should be out by the end of the year.

Obviously there is a "file system" check what a "file system" is. What it does not have is a file explorer.

by default there is no file system, but on the android market there are lots of free filesystem apps you can download!

I want to ask something about android. Is there really no file system on them? I've read that you can only create a level of folder. Is that true? If yes, then WinMo might still needed in some ways :)
