Canadian mobile phone carrier TELUS is reportedly gearing up for the release of a new Android-based device on its airwaves, the HTC Desire. Officially launched this year, the new mobile phone was brought to the market in various countries around the world since about four months ago, and should soon make an appearance on the airwaves of TELUS in Canada.
There are no specific details available on when does the wireless carrier plan on making the phone available, but that shouldn't be too far into the future, especially since HTC Desire
dummy units are already showing up. Since TELUS' retail locations are receiving these devices, one should expect for the actual phone to follow shortly.
According to a recent article
on mobilesyrup, specific info on the actual release date for the new Android-based mobile phone is missing at the moment, and the same applies to the price tag the HTC Desire
might arrive at TELUS with. Hopefully, the wireless carrier or the Taiwan-based handset vendor won't make us wait too long before announcing some solid info on their plans for this device.
As stated above, the Desire was launched earlier this year with Google's Android 2.1
operating system on board. The phone was unveiled as the twin brother of Nexus One. Unlike the latter, Desire came with HTC's own user interface thrown on top of Google mobile operating system, but featured the same hardware specs as the Google phone.
With TELUS set to bring the HTC Desire
to the Canadian market in the near future, HTC can say that it managed to conquer a new continent with this high-end device. Mobile phone users in Europe, Asia or Australia can already benefit from its features, and the handset's launch in Canada should be followed pretty soon by a launch in the United States, on the airwaves of Cellular South, and by a possible release at AT&T
