HTC Butterfly up for pre-order at Expansys, no price yet

HTC Butterfly up for pre-order at Expansys, no price yet
Worried about its poor financial results lately, HTC is trying to make the most of its DROID DNA and its international variant, the Butterfly.

Announced just a few days ago, it seems like it may not be long before the HTC Butterfly hits the store shelves, both literally and figuratively. The device has already appeared on and, and guess what - it's now available for pre-order. That said, it's a bit perplexing that the retailer has left it without a price. How can you pre-order something that doesn't have a price? Well, we guess some people are eager to do it nonetheless, so there's your chance.

The HTC Butterfly/DROID DNA is the company's first serious hit since quite some time, providing customers with some very serious hardware like a 5" 1080p screen and a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset.

I remember the time when HD2,Hero and Desire came out. They were the hit devices,only those devices made iPhone look outdated. HTC should focus on 1 FLAGSHIP a year. Make it stand-out design wise,add a micro sd card slot,provide a bigger battery. N bring back their famous ALUMINUM UNIBODY Designs. Just give 1 device a year n SUPPORT it for 2 years. The last thing they need is ADVERTISING. Advertise it like hell. Then Earth to Sky,MARK MY WORDS.

HTC needs to quit caving in to the likes of Verizon and do what they use to do best and thats build cell phones to what consumers want. Meaning give us back our expansion storage and gives us a bigger battery. I'd been all over the DNA if it at least had the sd card slot instead I'm now loving my new Droid RAZR Maxx HD

I guess it's not too bad for us international folks... Apart from the One series, HTC seems to be going back to expandable storage. The Butterfly has it, and if we're to go by HTCs words then the battery on the DNA shouldn't be a problem.

I still think HD2 was and is the best HTC ever and maybe the best phone, after more than 2 years it runs on more OS than any other smartphone and it had some terrific specs in his time (I have and HD7)
