HTC Click and Mega Soon
HTC's Click and Mega are both due in roughly two months' time, a Merrill Lynch analyst said on Monday. Without pointing to sources, researcher Laura Chen said the respective Android- and Windows Mobile-based phones would ship in late summer or early fall and that the raw cost of shipping either should sit at $300. Either is likely to cost carriers more, though for any US release the costs would likely be masked by carrier discounts.
Both are characterized as mid-range phones. The Click is a possible economic alternative to the Magic and Hero with a circular directional pad. The Mega should be an early but lower-cost Windows Mobile 6.5 device with a slightly smaller 2.8-inch touchscreen, a 3-megapixel camera and 3G. It cosmetically resembles the Android-running Hero.
