HTC ChaCha and HTC Salsa eyes-on

HTC has locked the single HTC ChaCha and HTC Salsa prototype units here at MWC 2011 behind glass, and they're not allowing our Facebook-addicted fingers to get any play right now. From what we can see, the ChaCha looks the more interesting of the pair; the physical QWERTY keyboard is nicely spaced on a surprisingly broad chassis, and the touchscreen - while small - is highly pixel dense.

Stylus Wars: HTC Strikes Back

Stylus Wars: HTC Strikes Back

The HTC Flyer is an anomaly.

HTC Incredible S official

HTC's Verizon DROID Incredible has spawned a European version, the HTC Incredible S, now packing a GSM radio into its unusually angular casing. HTC describes the style as "inside out" design, though what's really on the inside is a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 single-core processor. Unusually, despite HTC claiming that the Incredible S will be positioned as an Android enthusiast's device, it will actually launch with 2.2 Froyo.
