Earlier this year a small phone surfaced known as the HTCMini, whose sole purpose is to connect to the HTCButterfly, which is known as the DNA in the U.S. The HTCMini surfaced again, only this time in the U.K.

U.K. retailer Clove announced on its blog the coming availability of this device, only calling it the HTCMini+. This tiny device seems to have some additional features as well.

As you may have noticed, the HTCMini+ is a very simple phone. It’s an NFC equipped device and resembles one of those cordless phones that would hang on the wall, before smartphones took over.

The HTCMini+ is basically an extension of the Butterfly, and unlike a cordless wall phone, it can make or receive phone calls and text messages, in addition to acting as a remote when connected to your TV, thanks to its infrared functionality and the HTCMedia Link HD.

For now, it seems that this device will only work with the Butterfly and DNA, however, it’d be awesome if it could be used as a universal phone extension, not just a select few HTCdevices.

Either way, we still don’t know when the Mini+ will be available, but Clove is already taking preorders, listing the device for £64.99GBP, including VAT, which adds up to around $100USD.

Are you looking forward to the Mini+?
