Rogers offers HTC Desire C for free, goes for $30 on Fido
As previously hinted, HTC’s latest entry-level phone, the Desire C, has finally landed in Canada on several wireless carriers. The first is Rogers, which will practically give away the phone to willing customers. The second carrier that will sell the fiery-looking phone is Fido.
If you don’t mind being stuck with Rogers for the next three years, you can get the HTC Desire C for as little as $0.01. Considering they’ll also throw in a free Bluetooth headset as a bonus, it’s not at all a bad proposition. Alternatively, you can purchase the phone outright for $200 with no strings attached.
Over at Fido, the phone is being offered for $30 – but you’ll only have to sign a two-year contract. Plus, we believe the required monthly plan is slightly lower than that of Rogers. Similarly, purchasing the phone without a plan will only set you back $200.
The HTC Desire C comes in two colors: white and red. It may look like your ordinary HTC phone from the outside, but pry open the back panel and you’ll see some dope transparent red plastic innards. If you’re into smaller sized Android phone, the Desire C’s 3.5-inch HVGA display should be a right fit. It certainly helps that the phone comes with Beats Audio enhancement, Sense 4, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
