HTC Desire C Goes On Preorder For £10.38 Per Month

HTC's newest handset, the entry level Desire C, has gone on preorder at BuyMobilePhones.net on O2 for a mere £10.38 per month (£13.50 on a two year contract with an automatic £75 cash back); that's a total cost of ownership of just under £250 (compared to £190 on PAYG).

The device, which is expected to be released on the 28th of May, is essentially the follow up to the HTC Wildfire S. It comes with a 600MHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM7225A processor, a 3.5in HVGA capacitive display, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, Beats Audio technology, a five-megapixel camera with flash (but no front facing cameras), 512MB RAM, 4GB onboard storage, Wi-Fi and a microSD card slot, Bluetooth 4.0 plus 25GB free Dropbox storage.

The contract (O2 50 Internet Basics) includes 50 minutes, unlimited texts, 100MB data allowance and priority moments. The Desire C is the first handset (and device) to launch with Android 4.0 ICS and may pave the way for even more. Crucially, it gives existing Desire owners a glimpse of hope as to a future ICS roll out.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
