HTC just made its Facebook phones official at Mobile World Congress. Featuring a dedicated Facebook button, HTC Chacha and Salsa will be available to customers globally starting in Q2 2011. Both these smartphones come a step up from Android 2.3 – 2.4, which is also called Gingerbread.
HTC Chacha: Physical QWERTY keyboard, dual cameras, including a 5-megapixel color camera with auto focus and LED flash and a VGA front-facing camera, 2.6-inch display with 480 x 320 resolution and HTC Sense.
HTC Salsa: 5-megapixel rear camera with VGA forward-facing camera, 3.4-inch display with 480 x 320 resolution and HTC Sense.
“HTC has always understood that different people want different things and the new HTC ChaCha and Salsa offer special new ways to experience Facebook on a mobile device. With more than 500 million active users worldwide, Facebook has become synonymous with the social web and we wanted to create the ultimate socially connected phones with mass market appeal,” said Peter Chou, CEO of HTC Corporation.
