    Well, color us surprised! We know that HTC is releasing the entry-level Desire C soon. It turns out there are two more Desire models that the Taiwanese phone maker is preparing to push into the market. Seemingly coming out of nowhere, the Desire C is set to receive the company of the HTC Desire V and Desire VC. What of their specs?

    There’s definitely some good surprises waiting for those who lament HTC’s decision to pack the Desire C with a 600MHz processor (in 2012, really?). Both the HTC Desire V and Desire VC will ship with a single-core 1GHz processor, which puts it nearer to the One V’s territory in terms of performance. The two mid-range phones will come with a 4-inch screen of 800 x 480 resolution, 512MB RAM, 4GB internal memory, a 5MP rear camera, 1,650mAh battery, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

    And yes, the headline is true. The HTC Desire V and Desire VC are dual-SIM phones. The Desire V allows you to use two GSM numbers on the phone, while the Desire VC comes with a hybrid GSM-CDMA dual-SIM capability. Speaking to DetikInet, HTC Indonesia head of product marketing Samudera Seto said that the Desire V will be priced at 3.25 million Rupiah (US$340), while the Desire VC will go for 3 million Rupiah ($317). Expect both phones to hit the market this month.

    Given how popular the mid-range HTC One V is, we’re sure HTC will have no problem finding buyers for the Desire V and Desire VC. What do you think of the two phones?  Is the GSM-CDMA combo a first for a major manufacturer?

      Great mid-range phone… But I’m still waiting for the GSM/HSPA+ version of the Droid Incredible 4G LTE here in Indonesia. It’s qHD 4″ screen is the way to go for future mid-range phones.

      Its not the first GSM-CDMA combo device. Samsung is already selling Galaxy Ace Duos (i589) in India with GSM+CDMA support.

      Htc is the worst phone I ever had. It cannot get GPS Lock on to use navigation software. I have a HTC HD DESIRE.

      Got the HTC Desire V mentioned above and using it here in Australia. Absolutely brilliant phone.

      It Supports GSM and 3G 900/2100 in sim slot one and GSM in slot 2. Great phone for the money. Unfortunately lacks a few of the advanced sensors such as compass/magnetometer but it does have the common accelerometer and GPS. I use Amaysim (Optus) in slot 1 and Lycamobile (Telstra GSM pay as you go) in slot 2. These phones are sold here in Australia on the gray market.

      On the down side, app writers have not yet embraced the dual-sim capability so dialer/contact and sms apps etc. don’t look past the first sim. Hopefully these will become popular enough to encourage some app updates.
