HTC e1 is a dual SIM Android smartphone for China
The HTC 603e, which leaked last month, is now official and it's a mid-range smartphone tailored for the Chinese market, as we expected. It will be known officially as the HTC e1 and anyone who wants to pre-order one can do so starting today. Pricing is set at 1799 yuan, which equals to about $290.

What you get in exchange is a dual-SIM handset running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with HTC's very own Sense custom interface layered on top of it. The processor is clocked at 1.15GHz and is of the dual-core kind, while the 4.3-inch LCD2 display has a resolution of 480 by 800 pixels. Further specs include a 5-megapixel main camera with f/2.0 aperture and HTC ImageChip, 8GB of storage, Beats Audio enhancements, and a 2,100mAh battery. Judging by the press shots, the HTC e1 will come in a variety of pastel colors, including pink, blue, mint, and brown.

And that's the HTC e1 in a nutshell – not too bad of a package, yet nothing that other mid-range devices can't beat. But for users who absolutely must have dual-SIM functionality on their smartphone, the HTC e1 is shaping up as an excellent choice. Currently there is no word on whether the smartphone will ever be available outside of China.

As much as I like HTC, this look is getting old. I guess it's irrelevant as I'll never see this phone.

Good price tag considering they'll have to fight with Lenovo,Huawei and other manufacturers in china
