The HTC Desire S is available now on 3 on monthly contracts, as the release schedule for the year’s crop of Android phones begins to gather pace.
After some five years of waiting, last week, saw the launch of the fabled PlayStation phone, AKA the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play. On some networks, anyway.
Joining it on shoppers’ wishlists from today is the latest in the Desire range from HTC, which retains the HTC Desire HD’s 3.7-inch panel but adds some other specs that place it firmly in the class of 2011.
Not least of these is a front-facing VGA camera for video calling, the latest, greatest 2.4 version of Android out of the box – with a new take on HTC’s Sense social networking focussed custom skin slathered over the top.
It’s also home to a rear-mounted five-megapixel snapper with face detection, geo tagging and LED flash and expandable storage of up to 32GB via microSD card support.
3 is offering the Desire on a selection of 24-month contract options, including the rather winning all-you-can-eat One Plan that gives you unlimited data to allow you to make the most of your smartie.
