It’s been a busy day over at the HTC camp and they are certainly not pulling any punches this year at MWC.  HTC has revealed quite a number of products, so much, that we decided to roll it all up in one huge mega HTC release post for your convenience.  So, without further ado, lets jump right into it.

HTC Flyer Tablet – First up to bat, the highly anticipated and talked about product expected from the Taiwanese handset maker  is the HTC Flyer, a 7-inch tablet with a 1.5 GHz single core processor.  Yes, you read that right, a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm CPU will power this huge Desire looking tablet.  The device will house a 4,000 mAh battery, 1 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage, a 5 MP camera, 1.3 MP front-facing camera and support WiFi b/g/n protocols.  In addition, it will support Bluetooth 3.0, a microSD card slot, HDMI output support, DLNA technology and come pre-loaded with Android 2.4 as it’s primary OS version. No word on price or availability yet, but we’re told we can expect a Q2 release.  Check out the great snapshots of the device below along with a hands on , courtesy of our friends over at IntoMobile.  Also note, the device will come equipped with a capacitive stylus to give it that true tablet spirit.

HTC Incredible S – Next up is the HTC Incredible S device sporting Sense UI as well, a 4-inch multi-touch screen (480 x 800 resolution) and an HD 8 MP camera with dual LED flash and video recorder (720p).  The device will also rock a 1 GHz CPU chip, 1 Gig of RAM and a 1.3 MP front-facing camera.

HTC Desire S – Next up, the HTC Desire S, another Sense UI device sporting a 3.7-inch touch screen with 480 x 800 resolution, 1 GHz Qualcomm CPU, a 5 MP camera with LED flash, 720p HD video recording and a VGA color fixed focus front-facing camera.  It will also be accompanied by 1GB of RAM and a memory card slot (microSD) for expandable memory.

HTC Wildfire S – Next up in HTC’s arsenal is the Wildfire S also sporting a 3.2-inch touch screen with 320 x 480 resolution, 600 MHz CPU, Sense UI, 512 MB of RAM, a 5 MP color camera with auto focus and flash.  The device will house  a 1230 mAh battery.

HTC Salsa – This is one of two handsets that HTC has released, heavily focusing on Facebook.  So, while HTC is careful not to call these devices “Facebook phones”, they are definitely geared towards the ever popular social network crowd.  The HTC Salsa comes mini jam packed with a dedicated royal blue and pulsating Facebook button at the bottom of the device and a 3.4-inch 480 x 320 touchscreen.  It will come pre-loaded with Android version 2.4 (Sense UI).  Under the hood there can be found a 600 MHz Qualcomm MSM 7227 chip set, 512 MB of RAM and ROM, a 5 MP auto focus camera with LED flash and a VGA front-facing camera.

HTC Chacha – And last but certainly not least, the HTC Chacha.  With similar specs to the Salsa, we can expect to find the device sporting a portrait QWERTY form factor, a similar royal blue Facebook button, Android 2.4, Sense UI with Facebook customization, 600 MHz Qualcomm MSM 7227 CPU, 512 ROM/RAM, 5MP camera with auto focus and LED flash and a VGA front facing camera as well.  The screen will support a resolution of 480 x 320 and come in at 2.6-inches.  Both devices have been reported as will be arriving by the end of Q2 2011.  They will most likely come in a little higher than the Wildfire as far as price point goes and just under the Desire S and Incredible S’s MSRP.

So, there you have it. HTC has unleashed quite the arsenal at MWC.  Check out the extended gallery below of all devices courtesy of our friends over at Engadget, BGR and IntoMobile.  Let us know what you think in the comments below and what device stands out the most to you.

    No dual core and no Honeycomb, I think HTC’s design team are slipping back from the competition

    Is it just me or does HTC not really have another high end phone coming out? I’m excited to see the followup to the Evo… Where is the dual core? The Incredible S looks like the same basic specs as the Evo?
