HTC Desire to head for U.S. regional carriers this August
Some more high end Android action is heading to the U.S. this summer when HTC launches the Desire through certain regional carriers. For the manufacturer, it is a good move because it allows a high end model that might find too much competition at the top four U.S. operators, to grab a niche with smaller carriers. And for the latter group, it is a big win because they get to offer their customers a smartphone with specs similar to other HTC high end Android models. While the list of regional carriers who will get the Desire was not released, we earlier reported that U.S. Cellular will be offering the handset to its subscribers. There is precedent for this action as Cellular South has launched the HTC Hero and announced that they will carry the Motorola Milestone. The Desire has a 1GHz Snapdragon processor under the hood, is powered by Android 2.1 and is equipped with a 3.7 inch AMOLED WVGA display. The device offers a 5MP camera with flash and AF, and is well endowed with 576MB of RAM and 512MB of ROM. Hey, customers of regional carriers need some high end loving, too.
