HTC Desire Z Gets Priced on Amazon and Play

During the HTC unveiling event yesterday in London HTC made a big splash with the HTC Desire HD and Desire Z smartphones being officially announced, but HTC didn’t go as far as letting anyone know what the devices would cost.

However we now have an idea as according to an article over on Engadget by Vlad Savov, the HTC Desire Z has gained its first pricing from Amazon.de who offer the smartphone for €549 although there is currently no option to pre-order or purchase the handset.

The article also has some news from other online retailers such as Amazon UK who have posted a teaser page for the HTC Desire Z showing a price tag of £499 with a suggested 18th of Oct release date.

However, not to be outdone, Play.com has gone a step further and shows the HTC Desire Z for £430 and the HTC Desire HD for £470 and both available for pre-order with an expected release date of the 11th of Oct.
