image Well three new HTC devices in one day, it’s too much to take in, this one is the weakest of the three. The Viva will have a 2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.0, microSD card slot, 1100 mAh battery, QVGA screen and a 200Mhz TI OMAP 850 CPU, 128 meg Ram and 256 Meg Rom, WiFi b and g, Windows Mobile 6.1 and GPRS / EDGE. This will also have the HTC TouchFlo 3D enhancements but apart from that its pretty average compared to the other two devices, the Touch HD and Touch 3G.  Full specs after the break
