HTC Desire S coming in at Php25,990

I’ve been told by one of the local HTC retailers that the HTC Desire S will be available in stores this Monday with an indicative SRP of about Php25,990. Not bad for an HTC Desire re-fresh.

If you are in a hurry to get first dibs on the unit, you can pre-order at Top Electronics (see posted below) and get it at only Php23,500 (see poster for details).

Yugatech 728x90 Reno7 Series

HTC Desire S specs:
3.7 inches S-LCD touchscreen @ 480 x 800 pixels
1GHz Scorpion processor (Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon)
Adreno 205 GPU
768MB RAM, 512 MB ROM
1.1GB internal storage
up to 32GB on microSD
HSDPA 7.2 Mbps, HSUPA 2 Mbps
Bluetooth 2.1 w/ A2DP
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
5MP autofocus camera w/ LED flash
720p video recording
Front-facing VGA camera
Stereo FM Radio w/ RDS

The HTC Desire S is like a carbon-copy of the original Desire with a few minor improvements. It’s possible the original Desire is already at EOL (end-of-life) and the Desire S will eventually replace it inside store shelves.

    pag sa quality mas maganda ang HTC kasi metal hindi katulad ng samsung na plastic aside from that hindi sila ganun kasipag mag-update. hindi katulad ng HTC na simula lumabas hanggang sa ma-phase out alaga nila. Desire will have an upgrade by this month or by May diba?

    Amoled over SLCD? I dont think so. I prefer AMOLED still. Gorilla Glass Display pa din ba to?

    I’m gonna wait for EVO 3D. Sobrang dami ng developments recently sa mga smartphones. I think at some point they will be sacrificing battery life for performance na. And yeah.. 3D without glasses is awesome. :))
