The hugely successful HTC Desire mobile phone has now been upgraded with the launch of the HTC Desire S model which further improves on both design and features.
The HTC Desire was a massive success for the manufacturer winning the coveted ‘Phones of the Year’ award in 2010, HTC will no doubt be hoping that their new Desire S model can achieve the same stardom with its new improvements.
Phones Limited has now added both pay monthly contract and pay as you go deals to its price comparison database for the recently released HTC Desire S with a current total of 129 different ‘Best Buy’ deals available.
First released on March 10th as a SIM free and unlocked mobile phone the HTC Desire S has now been allocated deals on Vodafone, T-Mobile and Orange as well as a recent release on the Pay As You Go prepay system.
This new model may look very similar to the original HTC Desire but there are a number of improvements on offer.
Firstly, the outer casing of the phone has now been manufactured from a single piece of aluminium proving greater strength from a slimmer handset and the physical buttons that used to sit below the main touch screen have now been removed including the optical track pad.
The result is a lighter, thinner and more expensive feeling handset with no buttons to catch in your pocket, the removal of the buttons seemed a natural choice as more consumers become accustomed with touch screen technology.
Further enhancements include a second, front facing video camera for video calling, a longer lasting battery that adds over 190 minutes of talk-time and a faster user experience thanks to a larger RAM and storage plus a speedier GPU.
Upload and download speeds have also greatly improved with further Wi-Fi support.
The new HTC Desire S is offered at a very similar price point to that of the original Desire model on release, the phone is available free of charge on network tariffs of £25 or above and there is a large selection of free gifts accompanying deals on the higher value packages.
Although strong competition will inevitably come from new models such as the Samsung Galaxy S2, Motorola Atrix and Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc this new HTC phone looks to be able to easily hold its own in a crowded market place.
