HTC Desire V is the company's first dual-SIM smartphone for Europe
Dual-SIM smartphones are a rarity here in the US, but overseas in markets like Europe and Asia, there’s a big business surrounding them. Well, it looks like HTC is in the game with its very first dual-SIM offering for the European market.

The veteran smartphone maker recently announced the availability of its first dual-SIM Android smartphone for Europe – the HTC Desire V. Actually, the smartphone is bound for the Ukraine, where it’ll be available for purchase for a modest $470 (3,800 grivnas). Underneath it all, the HTC Desire V seems to be a slightly amped version of the also recently available HTC Desire C.

In terms of specs, the Desire V features a 4” WVGA (480 x 800) display, 1GHz single-core Qualcomm processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB if internal storage, 25GB of Dropbox storage, Beats Audio support, 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, 3.5mm headset jack, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, and HSDPA with one of the SIM card slots. Software-wise, it’s running HTC’s latest Sense 4.0 interface on top of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Far from being a pencil pusher much like HTC’s One series smartphones, the main attraction of the Desire V is its dual-SIM aspect, which enables users to throw in two SIM cards for convenience. Although it’s  mentioned to launch in the Ukraine, there’s no word yet on its availability in other markets.

Dual-sim is very useful in China and Asian countries, but Europe...
