Along with the launch of the dual-SIM Desire V, HTC also outs their most affordable Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich phone in the market, the HTC Desire C. This little phone doesn’t have the specs to amaze you but HTC made this for those who wants to get their toes wet with Android without over committing on the budget.
The HTC Desire C, as the name implies, stems from the Desire line with that familiar curves and design. It looks like a shrunken HTC Desire V that should fit comfortably in your pocket.
It will effectively replace last year’s HTC Wildfire S with both having a lowly 600MHz processor and a 512MB RAM. However, the HTC Desire C gets Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with HTC Sense 4.0 UI on top of it. It also has a bigger 3.5-inch screen with 16million colors, a more spacious 4GB internal storage, and a 5-megapixel camera. Not to mention you will also be getting Beats Audio enhancement on this phone if that’s your thing.
Being an entry-level phone from HTC, you will be getting more colors to choose from with the Desire C — Polar White, Stealth Black, and Flamenco Red. It is now available in HTC shops and authorized resellers with an SRP of Php10,990, which I personally think is just right for its specs.
