An all-white remix of HTC’s best-selling Desire Android smartphone is on the way to Carphone Warehouse outlets.
The phone features the same winning spec sheet and Sense custom skin that helped make the Desire one of the year’s most-wanted mobiles, but replaces the AMOLED display of the current edition with a Super LED screen.
The retail giant has yet to confirm a concrete release date for the handset, but it is expected to go on sale in time for the end of year seasonal rush.
Features of the Desire include a five megapixel camera, 1GHz and a 3.7-inch touchscreen, as well as a choice of thousands of apps from the Android Market and expandable memory up to 32GB.
The mobile is also home to HTC’s Sense user interface, which offers an impressively seamless social networking experience and plenty of scope for customisation.
A sequel to the Desire, dubbed the Desire HD, is expected to be unveiled this week at a mystery HTC event in London.
As its name suggests, the handset features high definition video recording, plus an eight megapixel camera, but is otherwise largely unchanged from the Desire.
