HTC slashes Salsa price in India to INR 16K

HTC has decreased the price of Android smartphone Salsa in India. HTC Salsa was launched this June in the country for a price of INR 22,000. As the smartphone was way over-priced from the day one, I suppose HTC did not see decent number of sales, leading to today’s price cut.

This seems to be an in-store pricing, as none of the online retailers have reduced their prices or maybe they will do that soon [Update: Flipkart, Letsbuy have slashed the prices.]

Salsa comes with a dedicated Facebook button, and deeply integrated its functionality in smartphone. Other features of the smartphone include Android 2.3, 800MHz processor, 5-megapixel rear camera with VGA forward-facing camera, 3.4-inch display with 480 x 320 resolution and HTC Sense.

    All HTC phones are overpriced. One should wait for a couple of months for the prices to fall down due to low sales. Check out the case with Flyer, and Chacha sooner than later.

    How come the phone has a MSM7227 and a Adreno 205 :S THe MSM7227 SOC has a Adreno 200. Even gsmarena says so. I am confused!
    Also price is down to Rs.15,099 in flipkart and letsbuy. So you can get it for Rs.13,899 using ICICILB coupon in letsbuy which is good even if it has a MSM7227 and great if it really has a Adreno 205!

    Hopefully people did not buy this when it launched and went for other better models.
    Whoever did buy it will sure be ticked off
