HTC Desire C lands in the UK Europe to follow
HTC has been busy recently launching its new One range of smartphones but the company has been known to offer cheaper handsets like the Wildfire, and today we have news of the HTC Desire C that has now landed in the UK with Europe to follow.
The HTC Desire C was first spotted earlier this month and it is now available in the UK before it makes its way to the rest of Europe, and according to Android and Me the budget friendly device comes running the Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. The handset will be available free starting at Â£13 per month on carrier Three, and for this you also get 100 minutes of talk time, 5,000 SMS messages, and 250MB of data each month.
If you prefer to have the handset without a contract Orange and T-Mobile have the device for Â£169, which compares to Three who will sell the Desire C to you for Â£149. Besides Android ICS the handset features a 3.5-inch HVGA display at 320 x 480 resolution, a single core 600 MHz Qualcomm processor, 4GB of on board storage, 512MB of RAM, five megapixel camera, microSD card port, 1,230 mAh battery, Beats Audio technology, and the HTC Sense 4.0 android overlay.
The version available from Three, T-Mobile, and Orange is the standard model, but soon there will be a version with NFC connectivity that will cost slightly more. While the handset may not match some of the company’s more powerful devices, HTC saw a big demand for its Wildfire and Wildfire S across Europe, so the Desire C could prove just as successful for the company.
We have seen quite a few lower priced smartphones being released recently and earlier today we told you about the Smart II handset available from Vodafone. Do you like the look of the HTC Desire C?
