Dual-sim HTC Desire V now available in India

    Unlike the US, India is a country where national roaming isn’t free, and can, in fact, get quite expensive if you aren’t paying attention. As such, dual-sim mobile phones have become very popular, especially for those who travel across state borders often. Unfortunately, there aren’t many mid-to-high end devices in the dual-sim category. It looks like with the release of the HTC Desire V, the Taiwanese company is aiming to change that.

    The specifications of the HTC Desire V dual-sim phone are:

    • 4″ WVGA display
    • 480×800 resolution
    • 1Ghz ARM Cortex – A5 processor
    • 4GB internal storage, expandable via microSD card
    • 5MP rear camera with LED flash
    • Android 4.0 with HTC Sense 4.0 out of the box
    • 1650 mAH battery

    Apart from the decidedly mid-range specifications, the device comes with HTC “regulars” that include Beats Audio integration and 25GB of free Dropbox storage space.

    The HTC Desire V dual-sim smartphone is currently available in India from online shopping site FlipKart and is listed at a whopping Rs 21,999 (~$390).

    HTC has recently become prominent in the Indian market, with the release of the low-end HTC Desire C, the high-end HTC One S,  and now the the mid-range HTC Desire V, apart from the HTC One X, which has already been available for a while now. Unfortunately, HTC hasn’t been helping itself as far as the price point of these devices is concerned – even the low-end Desire C is priced at Rs 14,299 (~$253).

    In the case of the Desire V, I think the device is a little overpriced, and the only reason to consider buying the HTC Desire V would be if you require dual-sim capability.

    What are your thoughts? How important is a dual-sim capable phone for you? Will you consider buying the HTC Desire V? Let us know in the comments section below.

      i would buy but if its dual sim active, for dual stand by there are more option available , don’t want to spend higher price.

      This phone isn’t dual sim active unfortunately and I really don’t understand why such phones aren’t manufactured anymore. Maybe because of the production price but if I decide to spend a little more money for such a phone the dual sim active is a must.

      I will not buy this phone for two reasons. One, that it is not a Dual Sim active phone, & the Second that it doesn’t have secondary Camera. Otherwise I would love to go for this Mobile, and will not change over in the next 2-3 yrs unless for a reasonable better technology.
