Well lookie, lookie, lookie. Rogers is poised to release a few more handsets soon. We already new that the LTE-enabled Sony Xperia ION is heading towards their stores (see here), but the HTC Desire C is a new one. This screenshot shows that cases are on the way… and where there’s cases there’s handsets. No indication of the price or when the device will be available – probably will target the back-to-school crowd.

Specs of the entry-level Desire C: Android OS 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich with Sense 4 UI and Beats Audio, a 3.5-inch HVGA display (320 x 480 resolution), 5MP camera, 600MHz CPU, 512MB of RAM, NFC, and a 1230 mAh battery.

More info on this release soon…
(Thanks tipster!)

    new wildfire?

    Other than the fact that this runs ICS natively as well as NFC, the specs for the Desire C is inferior to the original HTC Desire.

    This would have to retail for less than $200 outright to make this a worthwhile purchase. Otherwise, I’d suggest to grab a used Desire for less than $200.

    looks like rogers and telus both had 90 day exclusive rights on the X and C

  • Theywillbepissed

    Better be priced at about 100$ to be worth the money, especially considering the one v is priced at 175

  • Tom

    Also beats audio means nothing what a waste of money for htc to license that “technology”

  • Ron Mexico

    Desire C, C for Crap

  • Sean

    Actually the original Desire had a 1 ghz processor, a 3.7′ screen with a 480 x800 display which pretty mich sums uo the One V

  • Crunch204

    600 mhz?? They couldnt get it over a ghz? Whats the point then, the one V is way better

    a piece of crab, price better lower than 200

  • neo

    article is great but, the first sentence should be ‘we already knew’ new with a k common guys geez

  • Pari

    Nice phone just bought case from Cyber World UK.

  • captain67

    A processor clocked at 600mhz? What are they thinking? The only way that would be feasible for ICS is if it was a severely underclocked Krait, and even then..
