If you’re looking to put the power of the Web in your pocket but smartphones seem like strange and distant territory, and apps are a foreign language, then we would like you to meet the HTC Explorer. Do not get distracted by its looks, this little soldier carries the big responsibility of extending HTC’s dominance to the budget end of the Android line up.
