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.
