HTC after launching its Facebook Phone HTC Salsa last month launched HTC ChaCha. HTC salsa is full touch screen phone whereas HTC ChaCha is a 4 row QWERTY phone with touchscreen. The Android based smartphone is priced just Rs 15,990 and would give good competition in the mid-range smartphone segment.

Overall HTC ChaCha has a nice design, good features and specifications. ChaCha will find competition with the Nokia E6 and Samsung Galaxy Pro. Nokia E6 has a 2.4 inches screen where as the Samsung Galaxy Pro has a 2.8 inches screen. But HTC ChaCha can find an edge over it rivals because of the dedicated Facebook button.
