Yeah, it's way too expensive. Here in the philippines its apprx. 22k (Php) according to sulit.com. HTC has the HTC desire (version 2.2) here at the same pricing. It's not yet officially launched here. The features is really in mid-range scale. Although the hardware is really stunning. Hope the price hets cheaper.
HTC website states itz running on 800Mhz Proc. & 480 x 320 resolution
Donno why every website says 320 x 480 resolution. http://www.htc.com/www/product/salsa/specification.html
Can anyone please educate that why are HTC phones so prohitibly expensive. I understand that HTC packs some serious features & a nice UI. Is it because of the import Duty
dont worry guys.......the price of this phone in India will fall drastically withing 2 weeks.....coz only fools will buy this phone at current price
I own a Touch Diamond. When I bought I was like 100th owner of the mobile overall in India. It cost me 25k ( around $500 ). Still the price is around $450. With this as the case and very rare HTC Service centers, combined with very low user awareness ( 95% of the people here still thinks my touch diamond as a cheap Chinese Mobile !!! ) Its tough for HTC to get a large User base in India
i'm lost for choice, a new product is released every other week it seems what about my recently acquired device!
its way too overpriced.. It should have costed no more than 15000($326) at start.. We already have the galaxy sl retailing for 18000($392) and it beats the htc salsa in nearly all aspects.. This phone can only compete with mid-lower range android phones like the galaxy ace..
Gsmarena, check HTC official site, Salsa has already bumped to 800MHz since days ago.
And USD 460, are you serious? Desire S is only IDR 4,300,000/USD 490 (today currency) in Indonesia.

just too expensive for such a poor resolution and mid-range features. Same site offers Galaxy S for just INR 2000 (USD45) more. Who would buy this?!!
i agree with your comment..it's not a value for money, at this price there many other options available , i think even better.
Its very happy to hear, high end mobile manufacturer are giving first priority to india, like htc salsa, galaxy s2. Apple should no more treat india as dumping station, launching their products one yr later
too expensive for its features,, so no!
there are better phones at that price range..
and btw im the first to comment!lol
