HTC Click and Mega to be launched in Q4 2009

The Economic Daily News (citing Merill Lynch) is reporting that the Windows Mobile 6.5 HTC Mega and the Android based HTC Click are going to be launch this fall.

The FOB prices of both HTC Mega and Click will be tagged at around US$300 a unit which will help strengthen HTC’s competitiveness in the mid-range segment, the paper cited Merrill Lynch analyst Laura Chen as indicating.

HTC is expecting to see its revenues and shipments grow 11% and 19% in Q4 09 thanks to the launch of these two phones. but things aren’t looking nice in Europe where HTC is expects a decline of 20% as demand for its high-end smartphones (Diamond 2, Hero, Magic, Touch Pro2) is unlikely to improve.

Contrary to what is said at WMExperts, the Whitestone is not the Touch Diamond 2. This phone has a 3.6″ screen and as you can see on the render, has a buton at the center with a little TV on it.

The phone also has a kickstand on the back side as seen on this early render:
