HTC Desire 500 ready to be pre-ordered in the U.K.
Earlier Wednesday morning, we told you that the HTC Desire 500 had just become official with the handset expected to reach Western markets by the end of this month. Now, U.K. retailer MobileFun is taking pre-orders for the SIM free, unlocked version of the phone. Supporting the Jelly Bean build of the Android OS, the HTC Desire 500 offers the BlinkFeed page which aggregates all of your news and social media into live, streaming video feeds. Also, the Sense 5.0 UI is running over Android on the handset.

MobileFun will reserve your HTC Desire 500 for $347.99 which includes taxes. No delivery date is listed on the site. Beats Audio is found on the phone, and if you are looking to purchase the model, we'd strongly suggest investing in a microSD card. Ony 4GB of native storage comes with the device out of the box, but a 64GB capacity microSD slot will help you save more files, videos, pictures and tunes. And of course, some apps can be stored on a microSD card.

With all of the Sense 5.0 features on board along with Beats Audio and BlinkFeed, the HTC Desire 500 looks to be an affordable mid-range handset that is chock full of features.
