Not yet formally introduced but planned for release in early October 2008, the HTC Viva is a toned down version of the current Touch 3G. With no 3G connection, the Viva is planned to be a quad-band GSM/EDGE only. With the same 2.8" QVGA screen, 802.11 b/g WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0, and GPS/AGPS as found on the Touch 3G, the other components found in the Viva are significantly less impressive. Featuring a 201MHz TI OMAP processor, 128MB of ram, a 2MP camera, the Viva only comes in a single colour: "storm grey". Planned as a value version of the Touch 3G, the Viva is expected to be released unlocked for $299.
