The HTC Mini bears much resemblance to an Aprilâ€™s fools day prank. It is basically a Bluetooth and NFC powered companion for the HTC Butterfly Android handset, and seems to be positioned as a solution to the phablet problem of actually making a phone call on a 5 to 6 inch â€œphoneâ€.
Pairing via Bluetooth and NFC, the device can make phone calls (via the HTC Butterfly) but also act as a remote control when the phone is connected via TV out, and can even be used as a remote shutter button for the camera.
Of course it gives one more thing to charge and carry around, and one can question whether â€œphabletsâ€ should really exist, but I would certainly not say no is something like that popped up on Windows Phone. It will only be available in China.
