Indeed it’s not a part of the new HTC One line, but nevertheless, it’s following in the same footsteps as other budget oriented smartphones from HTC – like the Wildfire and Wildfire S, which were relatively popular across of Europe thanks to their value. So yes, the HTC Desire C will no doubt live up to the expectations based on its hardware specs.
Right now, the HTC Desire C is selling for as low as free on contracts that start as low as $20 (£13) per month through Three UK. With the plan, it provides customers with the base essentials like 100 minutes, 5,000 text messages, and 250MB of data. Furthermore, if buying it outright is more your kind of thing, it can be purchased for a mere $228 (£149) no-contract, which actually one-ups the £169 price point being offered by the competition in T-Mobile UK and Orange UK.
Just to jolt your memory if you’ve forgotten about this one, the HTC Desire C features a 3.5” HVGA display, 600MHz Qualcomm processor, 512MB RAM, 4GB internal storage, 5-megapixel camera, Beats Audio support, 1,230 mAh battery, microSD card slot, HTC Sense 4.0, and Android 4.0 ICS. Currently, it seems that the version being sold right now is the standard model, however, another one with NFC will be made available soon for a bit more money.
