HTC have unveiled the HTC Desire U which is an affordable Android smartphone that will initially launch in China and Taiwan.
Back at the start of 2010 when the original HTC Desire made it's debut it was a cutting-edge device. However, since then the Desire range has gradually moved further down HTC's pecking-order and the new Desire U is the most affordable model yet.
What is the specification of HTC Desire U ?
HTC's Desire U runs on the Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system , which highlights the affordable nature of the smartphone. While, the touch-screen comes in at 4 inches and runs at a resolution of 800 * 480 pixels which is the same resolution as the original HTC Desire.
The Desire U is powered by a single-core 1 GHz processor and has 512MB of RAM which is enough power for web-browsing and general usage. The on-board memory comes in at 4GB which can be expanded using microSD cards.
One of the main stengths of the HTC Desire U compared to other affordable smartphones is that it comes with Beats Audio technology. This will make it a much better music device than other mobiles in its price range.
A 5 mega-pixel camera is also featured on the HTC Desire U, while the smartphone supports 3G , WiFi, and Bluetooth. It'll be available in a choice of either Black or White and will initially be available in China and Taiwan.
Currently, 3G arn't sure whether the Desire U will launch in the UK , but as soon as we get more information you'll be the first to know.
