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).
HTC Desire S specs:
3.7 inches S-LCD touchscreen @ 480 x 800 pixels

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.
