HTC Desire X available on preorder for £228

The HTC Desire X, which was announced last week during IFA, is available for preorder from online retailer Clove for £228.

The Desire X comes after the original Desire, the Desire C, Desire S, Desire HD and Desire Z, a clear indication that HTC is trying to milk that label as much as possible.

The handset’s features are resolutely mainstream. It runs a Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8225 dual core system-on-chip clocked at 1GHz.

There’s also 512MB of RAM, 4GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, a 4in 800 x 480 LCD display, Wi-Fi, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a 5-megapixel camera, a 1650mAh battery, Beats Audio technology and 25GB of cloud storage from Dropbox for two years.

Our current entry-level favourite, the Xperia U, offers a similar configuration for almost half the price. Plus we prefer the smaller form factor of the Sony Mobile handset. Expect the first stocks of the Desire X to be delivered towards the end of September.

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.
