HTC's Facebook-focused Salsa will be exclusive to the O2 network in the UK when it launches this June, according to reports from British online retailer Clove Technology. In a recent blog post, Clove says it'll be stocking HTC's other Facebook phone, the ChaCha, from June 17, but adds that it has "no indication as to when/if [the Salsa] will be available SIM-free".
The Salsa is currently nowhere to be found on O2's coming soon page, nor has the carrier made any official comment, so it's probably best to take this with a pinch of salt until it's officially confirmed.
Earlier today we reported that Amazon UK has SIM-free versions of the Salsa and ChaCha available for pre-order, so we'll have to wait and see if Amazon quietly pulls the SIM-free Salsa if/when the O2 exclusivity deal is confirmed.
