The Carphone Warehouse has today announced the much anticipated launch of the HTC Desire. The new handset, available now, is just £30 on contract and £399.95 on Pay as You Go.
The HTC Desire promises to be everything a smartphone should be – sleek, fast and powerful. The striking handset, functioning with an Android 2.1 mobile operating system, is packed with innovations, blending cutting-edge design with state-of-the-art mobile technology. Its new, faster 1GHz Snapdragon processor also allows for a powerful and streamlined internet experience whilst the ‘leap’ thumbnail view allows for easy jumping between over 100 pre installed apps.
Catering to individual need, and featuring HTC”s popular user experience, HTC Sense, the handset’s multipurpose functionality moves seamlessly from work to play. New features include Friend Stream: the social network aggregator that delivers updates from a range of social networking sites to one place, and Newsstand - a helpful tool which manages RSS news feeds by filtering unwanted information. There are also additional touches including a quick way to cancel the ringer at unwanted times. Just flip the handset face down to mute the phone without cancelling the call.
