Must be entry-level Friday release date. First we saw Bell release the LG Optimus L5, then the Nokia Lumia 610 hit TELUS and now both Virgin Mobile and SaskTel have started selling the HTC Desire C. This Android will also be making its way to both Fido and Rogers sometime, the press release stated it’s “coming soon.”

As for the price, a measly $150 on a no-term for Virgin. SaskTel’s pricing is not live yet. The specs have it with OS 4.0 (probably staying there), 3.5-inch HVGA display, 5MP camera, 600Mhz processor, Wi-Fi and can create a mobile hotspot.

Update: Well this is amazing. SaskTel has just posted their pricing and the Desire C can be yours for a low $99.99 outright. They have also priced it for $0 on a 3-year, $79.99 on a 2-year and $99.99 on a 1-year.

We’ll have our full review up shortly.

      No, it’s the closest iPhone competitor, 2008 specs and a 3.5″ screen! :P

    • YouSuck

      Yes, it is BB10. And at that price it is a steal. You should buy a bunch and give them to all your friends. Perhaps then you’ll stop asking in every MS post if it is BB10.

  • Duw

    Holy crap, 600GHz processor! :D

    • All I do is Wind

      600Mhz is pretty weak… I guess it fits the price… if it wasn’t for that it would be an ok phone…

  • nrj4life

    Way to go with the pricing SaskTel. Just what it’s worth. Now should one get it at $99 on a 1-year or $99 outright? Decisions decisions.

    • HwyXingFrog

      I see $75 on a 1 year, but since I’m on Telus I would have to get a friend on Sasktel to pick this one up for me, then get it unlocked for use with my Telus SIM card.

  • HwyXingFrog

    Sasktel is the main Cellular/Phone/Internet/TV/Security provider in Saskatchewan (Canada).

    Once they have complete root/unlock/custom bootloader/ROMs for this phone I won’t hesitate to get one from Sasktel at $99.

    That price is crazy, especially since I know Telus charges $150 for a cheap beater used loaner if you have to send yours away for warranty.

    And, then you can use it as a $100 network camera with the IP Webcam app.
