In China, HTC will soon be offering the HTC Mini, a companion handset to the HTC Butterfly. Resembling a small wireless home phone, the Mini uses Bluetooth to allow you to make and take calls even with your Butterfly safely tucked away in your pocket. Once the HTC Mini is paired with your HTC Butterfly using NFC, it can be used to show your calendar, call logs, and calls on the small monochrome screen.
The HTC Mini companion phone for the HTC Butterfly
When you have your HTC Butterfly hooked up to your television via the HDMI port, the HTC Mini becomes a remote control to help you navigate through menus. And the HTC Mini can also set off the shutter on your HTC Buttefly's camera by remote control. Suppose you put down your HTC Butterfly somewhere and can't find it. No need to panic, the companion phone can make the Butterfly ring so you can locate it.
HTC hasn't put a price tag on the accessory yet and perhaps if the HTC Mini goes over big in China (see what we did there?), it will get released around the globe.
