HTC launches six new devices

Taiwanese mobile phone manufacture has brought out six Android mobile devices at MWC in Barcelona, which includes their inaugural HTC Flyer tablet and the large screened Incredible S. This is along with the HTC Desire S sequel phone and another successor to the original Wildfire, the Wildfire S – with two budget handsets in the HTC CahCha and Salsa.

The HTC Flyer is their first tablet computer, which runs from a 7-inch 1024x600 TFT screen, with a 1.5GHz processor and a 5 megapixel camera, 32GB of internal storage and Android with the HTC Sense overlay to that very OS.

HTC’s Incredible S is a 4-inch 480x800 touch screen mobile phone, with a 1GHz CPU, 1.1GB of storage and an 8 MP camera with a dual flash LED, whilst running from Android, along with the HTC Sense UI on top of that platform.

The Desire S that One Mobile Ring took stock of last week arrives with a 3.7-inch 480x800 touch screen, with Qualcomm’s new 1GHz Snapdragon MSM8255 processor, 1.1 GB of internal storage, a 5 megapixel camera and also running from an undisclosed version of Android, with the HTC Sense overlay.

HTC’s update to the budget model Wildfire, will be known as the Wildfire S and is one of the smallest handsets in their arsenal at 10.13cm long and 5.94cm wide. This mobile phone will ship with a 3.2-inch 320x480 touch screen, a 600MHz CPU, only 512MB of internal storage and a 5 MP camera with a flash, along with Android and the HTC Sense UI.

The HTC ChaCha is a Qwerty keyboard budget BlackBerry–esque phone, with a 2.6-inch 480x320 touch screen, a 600MHz processor, 512MB of internal storage, a 5 Megapixel camera and Android with the HTC Sense overlay.

Lastly, HTC’s Salsa is a 3.4-inch 480x320 touch screen handset, with 600MHz and 512MB of storage, a 5 megapixel camera with flash, whilst running from Android with the HTC Sense UI. This mobile, along with the ChaCha, is geared up for social networking with ‘one touch’ access to Facebook - where a dedicated button has been provided on the phone

HTC aren’t keen on hammering down which version of Android will be running on these devices, where it’s rumoured that version 2.3 of the Google mobile operating system will be used.

The HTC Incredible S, Desire S and Wildfire S will be available between April and June this year, although no prices have been attached as yet and we’ll be reporting on the networks carrying these handsets at a later date.
