When it comes to HTC you will find that all eyes are on the HTC One Mini and the forthcoming HTC Maxx that is already rumored to be in news in the market.

There is the 8 MP camera that features an LED Flash. The mobile also boosts of a ImageChip processor and the SLCD display is one that is a 4.3 inch one that is a little disappointing at an 480×800 resolution.
The HTC Desire 500 smartphone is a device that will be sold in Taiwan for a price of $400. This phone cost is high and this has got something to do with HTC’s partnership with the local carrier Taiwan Mobile. This is a way where you can push people towards the subsidized carrier promotion and offer.

HTC has been successful of late with the HTC One phone and it will take time for us to see how the phone fares in the nation before it has been declared for making an advent in other nations across the globe.
