HTC ChaCha in kuwait

HTC announced the HTC ChaCha together with the HTC Salsa in Kuwait-- two social network-oriented Android phones -- in Barcelona at the Mobile World Congress. The Internet and the blogosphere in general called them “Facebook phones” due to their dedicated Facebook buttons as well as the deep Facebook integration. The HTC ChaCha isn’t your state-of-the-art Android phone in kuwait in terms of specifications. There is no dual-core processor and there’s no gigabyte of RAM. Instead, you’ve got a single-core processor clocking in at 800MHz – the phone was initially announced with a 600MHz CPU but HTC changed its mind – and 512 MB of RAM and ROM -- but guess what? It’s enough for the nene of the main advantages of Google’s Android platform is the fact that it does not require high-end internals to run decently. The ChaCha sports an 800MHz processor which is single core and has 512 MB of RAM and ROM. The screen is rather small, measuring 2.6 inches in diagonal, but it comes with the territory when you have a fixed full QWERTY keyboard in a candybar form factor. The resolution is half VGA with 480 horizontal and 320 vertical pixels. There’s a five-megapixel camera at the back aided by an LED flash which takes average pictures, but unfortunately won’t even record in 720p. 480p video is what you’ll get if you want to film, and pictures are a tad dull and washed out. The VGA camera on the front will serve you well as a mirror (HTC even has a mirror application installed) or for video calls, but Skype just didn’t work for us, and we're assuming that the internals aren’t powerful enough for the ChaCha to handle the application. Then there are your usual suspects: WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS, G-Sensor, digital compass, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, LED inside the speaker grill for notifications and a radio which supports quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE in the 850/900/1800/1900 MHz bands. Powering all there’s a 1,250mAh battery which gives you enough juice for up to two days, even though Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread and the Facebook apps running in the background could sometimes be battery drainers. eds of the typical user in the target audience in kuwait.
