We consider the Antoine Brieux latest design, HTC Tube, a brilliant idea, one that would get some kudos even from Modu: a smartphone based on cartridges to enhance its features. HTC Tube is available in a Starter, Smart and Ultimate Edition, with the first running Android 2.2 on a 800MHz and the Ultimate using a 1.5GHz Dual core CPU coupled with WP7/Android 2.2 via dual boot.

Features can change depending on the cartridge you use and we learn that the external case of the handset is made of a magnesium alloy and incorporates a 4.65 inch S-Amoled multitouch capacitive display with a 16:9 ratio. The internal cartridge provides the most important features, like the GPS, WiFi, 3G, camera (up to 12MP) with dual LED flash, 1800mAh battery and more.

1GB of RAM should also be present on the HTC Tube ultimate Edition, while the Smart Edition will only feature Windows Phone7 with HTC Sense, 576MB RAM and a 5MP camera. This NAK Design phone can evolve endlessly, as cartridges keep getting made, so this idea is once again, brilliant! Is anyone in Taiwan reading this?!
