HTC Flyer Tablet, Wildfire S, Facebook Smartphones Debut at MWC

BARCELONA—Mobile handset manufacturer HTC pulled out all the stops at the 2011 Mobile World Congress, introducing no less than five smartphones and a tablet computer, the Flyer. In addition to two handsets featuring one-touch Facebook connectivity, the ChaCha and the Salsa, HTC also revealed updates of the Incredible, Desire and Wildfire smartphones. The Flyer tablet combines natural touch and pen interaction and features the company's Sense user interface. It runs a hybrid version of "Gingerbread"—Android 2.4—and boasts a 7-inch touch-screen display, a 1.5GHz processor and high-speed HSPA+ wireless capabilities. The ChaCha and Salsa smartphones feature a dedicated Facebook button for one-touch access to the key functions of the Facebook service that are integrated throughout the HTC Sense platform. The Desire S is inspired by the company's Legend smartphone's aluminum design; the handset is sculpted out of a single block of the metal. The Wildfire S offers social-networking features such as the ability to tag friends in photos before posting them on Facebook, and the Incredible S enables videos, photos and music to be shared from the handset direct to a television using DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) technology.
