One of the cheapest Android phone launched by HTC, the Desire C has just reached Canadian carriers Rogers and Fido. The device is now available for purchase for prices ranging between $0.01 CAD and $200 CAD.
Rogers offers the best deal for customers who are willing to commit to a long term contract. The Desire C is available for only $0.01 CAD with a new three-year agreement, whereas Fido sells the smartphone for as low as $30 CAD on a two-year term.
Those who want to avoid being tied by a long term contract can buy the HTC Desire C for only $200 CAD outright via Rogers and Fido
On a side note, SaskTel and Virgin Mobile already introduced the Desire C and are both offering better deals for the smartphone.
For example, Virgin Mobile Canada sells the HTD Desire C for only $150 CAD outright, whereas SaskTel customers can grab the phone for just $100 CAD on no term.
Although it's one of the most affordable HTC smartphone available on the market, the Desire C is powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system integrated with HTC Sense 4.0 UI.
The only downside is the fact the Desire C
is equipped with a low-performance 600 MHz single core processor, but it's understandable for such a cheap device.
There's also only 512MB of RAM inside, along with 4GB of internal memory, which can be further expanded up to 32GB via microSD memory card.
The phone sports a 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen display that supports 320 x 480 pixels resolution and 16 million colors. On the back, the phone packs a 5-megapixel photo snapper with video recording.
Other highlights of the HTC Desire C include: HSDPA and HSUPA support, Beats Audio technology, GPS with A-GPS, Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP and 1230 mAh Li-Ion battery.
