Abhi Aravind has quite a bunch of concepts available on our website, so one more can’t hurt, right? The latest newcomer is the HTC Nova, a superb Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich handset with the ability to play back 1920 x 1080 video, supposedly.

The HTC concept pone uses a 4.3 inch capacitive touchscreen, a 12 megapixel camera with dual LED flash and 1080p video recording, plus a 1GHz dual core processor and 1GB of RAM. 48GB of SSD memory, plus up to 80GB of expandable storage are also available. Filling in the blanks are 4G connectivity, USB 3.0 and WiFi, plus a customizable homescreen.

If Android 4.0 is anything like this, then I’m buying the devices it’ll be available on! As far as the HTC Nova goes, the speaker at the top is a nice touch, while the capacitive buttons at the bottom remind me of the HTC Touch older models, which is always a good thing, since everyone seemed to love those early smartphones.
