HTC has launched another smartphone in Taiwan.  Jack Tong, HTC North Asia-Pacific region president, said at the phone launch that his company hopes to attract more customers in the mid-tier smartphone market.


HTC Desire L features a 4.3-inch 480×800 touchscreen, a 5 MP rear camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording, no front camera, a 1 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of built-in storage space, a microSD card slot for expansion, HSPA, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Beats Audio, and a 1,800 mAh battery. It runs a yet unknown version of Android, but it's either 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or 4.1 Jelly Bean.


HTC Desire L being sold outright for NT$10,900 (US$366). There is also the option of paying NT$2,990 plus an additional NT$897 monthly fee for a service plan.

The 5-inch HTC Butterfly is now available in pink exclusively for the Taiwanese market. It is expected to be delivered and sold this month. The HTC Butterfly is perfect for those who are looking for a phone with a bigger display. It features a quad-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon processor, edge-to-edge screen that displays crisp photos and videos, comparable to the iPhone 5 (IMHO), 2GB RAM, 16 GB internal memory and the works.


Originally, it comes in white and red, but for some reason HTC thought it better to introduce a pink Butterfly and only in Taiwan. This will really cater to a very specific market, most likely for young girls and women who want a pink device that has enough power and features for satisfactory browsing, computing and other functions.

Amazon's resellers are selling the HTC One unlocked for whopping $799.  T-Mobile's HTC One will be released on April 19, too. It can't be pre-ordered, but we know it's going to cost $99 upfront with $20 per month for two years.  AT&T and Sprint are both asking $199.99 on contract.  So unless you must have the Unlocked version, i wouldn't recommend it. 


HTC will also introduce a Developer Edition of the One on April 19. This comes with 64GB of internal memory, unlocked SIM and unlocked bootloader, and will cost $649.  You should get that instead.


HTC One is the Taiwanese company's flagship smartphone for 2013, offering lots of high-end features, including a 4.7 inch Full HD display, LTE, quad-core 1.7GHz processor, and a 4MP Ultrapixel camera.


 


Kind of sad for HTC, seeing it's earning drop quarter after quarter.  Taiwan's largest smartphone maker HTC, posted its lowest quarterly profit on record after the delay of its newest flagship phone caused revenue to miss the company's target.


The net income for HTC in the first quarter was just $2.8 million, a painful 98% drop compared to the year ago quarter. Still, any profit is better than a loss, so it's not all bad. Revenue for Q1 2013 was $1.4 billion, down 37% over the year ago quarter (which saw $470 million in net income).


HTC lost early momentum for its HTC One handset in February as a shortage of camera components forced it to delay shipments in key markets by as much as a month. Hopes for revenue rebound this quarter may be limited as the new device becomes widely available less than a month before Samsung's new Galaxy S4, which goes on sale in the U.S. on April 26.


Recently Facebook announced the Facebook Home device - the HTC First - which targets the social network's 1+ billion people with a Facebook-made launcher called Home.

According to a screenshot taken by the folks at Engadget, it looks to us like the cheapest HTC One on contract will be priced at $250.  Engadget did not receive any official information regarding the flagship's pricing or specific availability.  But this should give you some idea what the plans of AT&T will likely be.


The 64GB model looks like it will take a bit more time to get out of the gate, though the tipster says it will cost $299.99 when it's ready.


Other than AT&T, T-Mobile has announced that the HTC One is "coming soon" for $99 up-front, and rumors earlier today suggested Sprint's model would cost $199.99 with a two-year contract. AT&T's rumored $249.99 price-point would place the HTC One in direct competition with Samsung's Galaxy S4, which is already the clear winner when it comes to popularity.
