Mid-ranger available in Carphone Warehouse stores starting today
Originally announced for the UK market back in August, HTC today sends word that its mid-range Desire 500 handset launches today at the Carphone Warehouse. CPW has exclusivity over the white version, and will also sell the Desire 500 in the standard black, seen above.
The Desire 500 packs a quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 CPU, 1GB of RAM and an 8-megapixel rear camera with HTC's ImageChip tech. On the front is an 800x480-resolution 4.3-inch display, and there's 4GB of internal stroage, expandable via microSD by up to 64GB. As you might expect, the Desire 500 runs HTC's Sense UI, with the same BlinkFeed home screen reader found on high-end HTC phones.
A quick glance over the Carphone Warehouse's online store reveals on-contract prices starting at £15 per month, and a very reasonable SIM-free price of £199.99. More details at the link below, and in the press release after the break.
