Taiwan mobile phone maker HTC Corporation is reportedly getting ready to make its high-end HTC Desire available in more markets, as it plans bringing the goodness of its HTC Sense solution to TELUS' customers in Canada. The Android 2.1-based mobile phone is reportedly heading over to the Canadian wireless carrier, though it seems that the branding of the device has been changed, and that users in the country will soon enjoy an HTC Triumph.
According to a photo that emerged recently over at mobilesyrup
, the HTC Triumph that emerged in TELUS inventory a few weeks ago is none other than the HTC Desire
, currently one of the most popular phones in a series of markets around the world, such as UK. The handset runs under Google's Android 2.1 operating system, on top of which HTC has put its HTC Sense user experience, and is expected to become available for purchase in Canada sometime in July or August.
For the time being, no other details on the mobile phone's launch on TELUS' airwaves in Canada are known, nor on the price tag it might be put on sale with. However, the good news is that Canadians will soon be able to purchase a new high-end Android-based device
, which expands the series of devices launched in the country with Google's OS on board (which includes phones like the HTC Hero, the Motorola Milestone, Motorola Backflip or Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, just to name a few).
In case there are some who are not yet familiar with the specifications list of the high-end HTC Triumph (Desire), we should mention that the device
sports a 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen display capable of delivering a 480 x 800 pixel resolution, that it is powered by a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm, or that it packs a 5-megapixel photo snapper on the back. A nice range of connectivity options are also included in the package, such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3G, or GPS, as well as enhanced functionalities, powered both by the Android OS, and by HTC's Sense UI.
