MWC marked a very busy last week for HTC as the company announced some new developments. If you’re waiting for these newly-announced HTC Android phones (not to mention the HTC Flyer tablet) in your location, you will now you know where to look.
Starting with the United States: according to Mobilized, AT&T will soon offer HTC phones similar to the “Facebook phones” ChaCha and Salsa (pictured below). If those phones are anything like ChaCha and Salsa, then they might exhibit the same specs including their candybar form factor. The ChaCha has a 2.6-inch HVGA capacitive touchscreen with a full QWERTY keyboard. The Salsa, on the other hand, has a 3.4 HVGA touchscreen display, and completely foregoes a physical keyboard. These phones are called “Facebook phones,” because they offer Facebook integration, which makes it easier for users to share things on the FB web site.

It has a 7-inch screen with a 1024×600 resolution, a 1.5 Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 5MP camera, HSPA connectivity, and runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread with the option to upgrade to Honeycomb (Google’s “unofficial tablet OS”).
