The HTC Desire S, which will be the third in line to the Incredible S and the Sensation, has dropped in price at Amazon where it is on sale for only £330 including VAT and delivery.
The handset which is an updated version of the popular HTC Desire carries a suggested retail price of nearly £400, which means that Amazon and HTC must have agreed to some serious price cuts.
As expected, the Desire S is just like the HTC Desire; it has a 3.7-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen with a new Qualcomm Snapdragon system on chip clocked at 1GHz, 512MB RAM, a five-megapixel camera with AF and LED flash, 720p HD video recording, Gingerbread with HTC sense and a number of sensors as well.
As expected you do get Wi-Fi, a microSD card and a number of other add-ons as well. The smartphone is currently the second most popular handset on Amazon which is a credit to the work carried out by HTC.
That said, the HTC Desire HD and the HTC Desire can be had for either much less than that (in the case of the Desire) or for not much more than that (when it comes to the Desire HD).
The Desire has almost the same configuration, missing out only on the front facing camera, Gingerbread, the new Qualcomm system on chip and the new design.
