Europe: HTC Butterfly can be pre-ordered at Expansys, no price given
And while there is no word on when the device will be released in Europe, retailer Expansys has already started taking pre-orders for it. The new smartphone is listed by Expansys in the UK, France, Germany, and Italy – with the mention that “if you place a pre-order for this product now, we will not ship the product or charge your credit card without confirming you still wish to proceed when stock arrives. There are no cancellation charges.” So you can order it, but there’s no guarantee that you’ll receive it anytime soon.
Apart from the US (where only Verizon is selling it – under the name of Droid DNA, as mentioned above), the HTC Butterfly is also available in Japan, and it’s been also introduced in China, where it should go on sale before the end of this month.
The Butterfly / Droid DNA is HTC’s first smartphone with a full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) display. It runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and features a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM, Beats Audio, 8MP rear camera with ImageSense, 2.1MP front-facing camera, 16GB of internal memory, and a 2,020 mah battery.
