HTC has reportedly upgraded the processor of the forthcoming HTC ChaCha. In Barcelona for Mobile World Congress and brought you coverage of the HTC press event. During that event the HTC Salsa and the HTC ChaCha were unveiled.
There’s still that 2.6-inch HVGA capacitive touchscreen, 512MB of RAM, 512MB ROM, a microSD card reader, a 1250mAh battery, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, a 5-megapixel rear camera with flash, a QWERTY keyboard, a Facebook button, a VGA front facing camera and runs on Android 2.3 with HTC Sense UI.
The HTC ChaCha has already arrived at Europe, where it will sport a front-facing full QWERTY keyboard that makes it a snap to insert text, including a host of interface enhancements which would keep any social networker smiling from face to face.
Originally meant to be accompanied by a 600MHz Qualcomm CPU, it seems that HTC has decided to increase the clock speed by another 200MHz, and perhaps that could be because HTC decided 800MHz was the way to go if they want to maintain a balance between stellar battery life as well as performance. 800MHz would clearly place this in the lower end side of things compared to other newer Android smartphones that run on at least 1GHz with dual cores for some.
