HTC Desire C
The HTC Desire C is a low-cost Android 4.0 smartphone that should be hitting retailers from June onwards.
Don't get too excited by the name - the Desire C is not a replacement for the Desire S but it can perhaps be considered to be an upgrade of the Wildfire S instead, and it sits a little below the HTC One V in HTC's product range.
HTC Desire C The main features are a 3.5" 320 x 480 pixel (HVGA) display, a 5 megapixel camera plus all the usual Android features such as 3.5G support, WiFi and Bluetooth. An NFC version of the Desire C will also be available.
Inside is a pretty modest 600 MHz processor coupled with 512MB of RAM, which is enough for an entry-level phone but a bit puny for something bearing the "Desire" name. The Desire C has a 1230 mAh battery, measures 107 x 61 x 12mm and weighs just 98 grams
The Desire C will be widely available on several different mobile networks. T-Mobile in the UK say that the phone should be available from June onwards for £169.99 on prepay or free on a 24-month £15.50 contract, so expect competitors to be broadly the same.
