Description

The HTC Salsa is a smartphone designed for social networking. This is similar in specification to the HTC Chacha, but has a larger 3.4 inch touchscreen to replace the QWERTY keyboard. They are otherwise the same, including the dedicated Facebook button that allows for quick posting of whatever is being done with the phone to the social network. A 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and an LED flash is built in, and a VGA front camera allows for easy self-portraits. Full integration with Google applications is handled by the Android 2.4 operating system. Memory can be expanded using the microSD memory card slot, and files quickly copied over using the micro-USB port for saving pictures or loading music and movies onto the phone for later viewing.
