HTC Myst rumored to be the next Facebook phone, details leak out
Details about the HTC Myst have just surfaced and while nothing is yet official, it seems that HTC might indeed be planning to release this phone with a dedicated Facebook button (hopefully, one could reprogram it later on). The company already has a history of making “Facebook phones” after it released the HTC ChaCha with a dedicated FB button.
The HTC Myst, previously known as the HTC Opera in rumor land, is a solid mid-ranger but nothing more. The Myst brings a 1.5GHz dual-core MSM8960 chip along with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage (sadly, not expandable).
The 720p display at 4.3-inches works out to the impressive 341ppi, an excellent pixel density.
Not bad for a mid-ranger, but do we really need a “Facebook phone”? What do you think?

Agreed. I smell somthing fishy here. Ether it is a 4.3" display with 342 ppi or a 4.5" display with 326 ppi but you can not have a 720p screen at 320 ppi. At 1280x720 the screen would have to be 4.59" to acheve a ppi of 320. I thank that "phone" is just something that some one made up without doing the proper math. I dont see this phone as being real.

720p 4.3/4.5inch phone is actually what I want for a extra phone...Hopefully these specs are the new low/mid range android phones.
No sd card, no thank you though.

Specs are decent, but without expandable memory and a better camera (5MP? They could have done better), this phone pales in comparison to other mid-range and high-end phones. HTC's struggling with revenue and market share as it is, and this phone won't help them much, if at all.
And it doesn't help that it's a Facebook phone. The last one was a bomb, so what's to say this one won't be either?
