HTC Salsa unboxing video

htc_salsa Announced at MWC earlier this year the HTC Salsa is one of HTC’s new feature smartphones. Many were already calling this the ‘Facebook Phone’ and although there is obvious Facebook integration with this device the HTC Salsa, and indeed the ChaCha, are not official Facebook phones.

However HTC have integrated Facebook nicely in to these phones and we’re starting here with the HTC Salsa. On the Front is a small, physical button with the Facebook logo on it. Pressing this launches you in the the Facebook app. A long-press on this button also allows you to check in at your current location as recorded by the internal GPS.

On top of this you can set up auto-upload of the photos you take with the 5 megapixel camera and these can be synced automatically to your Facebook account.

Check out the unboxing video below for a quick look at the handset in action.
