Looks like HTC is continuing its trend of releasing phones in India soon after their global launches, with the HTC Salsa, one of the two famous Facebook phones from the company, now officially available for pre-order on the online retail site - Letsbuy.com. Customers can expect delivery in 4-7 working days, at the time of writing.
Priced a little too high at Rs. 20,399 (bundled with a 2GB microSD card), the HTC Salsa has a 800MHz processor (not the 600MHz config we were expecting), 512 MB of RAM, and should come with at least Android 2.3 Gingerbread onboard – when we’d last officially heard of the device, it was supposed to come with Android 2.4, or another name for the almost mythical and still unseen Android Ice Cream OS. Of course, HTC Sense UI is skinned over the OS. The Salsa has a 3.4-inch capacitive touch screen with 480 x 320 resolution, as well as a 5MP camera with auto-focus and flash. Prices will hopefully fall to Samsung Ace levels soon after the phone hits retail shelves.[RELATED_ARTICLE]
Once called the Facebook phone, along with the yet missing QWERTY HTC ChaCha, the HTC Salsa offers one-touch options throughout the interface to post/update/check information on Facebook, all to allow for ‘instant sharing’ as HTC calls it. All this with the Facebook button, visible below the screen, in the image below...
Other specs of the phone include a weight of 120 grams; 3G (HSDPA 7.2Mbps, HSUPA 384Kbps)/GPS (with A-GPS)/Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n)/GPRS (with EDGE)/Bluetooth (v3.0) connectivity; 512MB of storage expandable to 32GB via microSD card; a 1520 mAh battery rated to deliver up to 585 minutes of talktime, and 456 hours of standby time; a VGA front camera; g-sensor, digital compass, proximity sensor, and ambient light sensor.
