HTC Salsa

Last updated: Nov 16th, 2010.

The HTC Salsa was announced in February 2011 as one of the first mainstream "Facebook Phones". HTC and Facebook worked closely together to create a social networking driven device that features an actual "Facebook Button": whenever interesting content is easily shared to Facebook, the blue button lights up and with one press you can instantly share content with your friends on your Facebook page.

With a 3.4-inch screen, 480x320 pixel resolution, 5MP camera, front-facing camera for video chat, and Android 2.3 with HTC Sense, the HTC Salsa is an affordable Android phone that should excite the younger end of the mobile market looking for an original and exciting opportunity. It focuses on what the Facebook generation want most: a complete smartphone experience that allows them to share socially without putting them - or their parents - in bankruptcy.
