HTC Mega and HTC Click to launch in late Q3/early Q4?

Not that either handset will launch with the code names by which we now know them, we hope, but DigiTimes is reporting a Q4 launch for both the HTC Mega and HTC Click. Staying true to the strategy HTC CEO Peter Chou discussed earlier this month, both handsets will fall into the mid-range smartphone category and are expected to drop at around $300 a piece. The Mega is rumored to be a decently spec’d Windows Mobile 6.5 handset featuring a 2.8-inch QVGA (240×320) touchscreen display, a 3 megapixel camera, GPS and a 528 MHz processor. Specs for the Click are yet to be revealed, though we can likely expect plenty of similarities with the Mega, barring the Android OS of course. According to Merrill Lynch analyst Laura Chen, mid-range handsets like the Mega and Click will help HTC revenue grow 11 percent in Q4 2009 on the back of an anticipated 19 percent increase in handset shipments.
