It’s been a while since the last time HTC officially tackled the “Jelly Bean situation”, and, with only one phone being currently upgraded (and rather slowly), you can say things aren’t looking good for people still on ICS.
With most people talking about which high-end Android phone to get for the holidays, let’s break the mold for a bit and expand our options. There, in fact, are affordable Android phones... also worthy to be scribbled onto our holiday lists, one of which is HTC’s newest in its mid-range line — the HTC Desire X.
The previous earlier HTC Desire and HTC Wildfire series has...
If the HTC Desire X ticks all the right boxes, you probably knew that the handset was already up for sale on Phones4U in the UK for a couple of days now. It looks like more retailers in the country are stocking the mid-range phone.
HTC’s latest mid-range budget offering, the Desire X, didn’t exactly look like a phone to make the crowds very excited, so it didn’t come as a big surprise when the weeks passed and we didn’t hear a thing about its release. However, exciting things are finally happening to the Desire X, at least in the UK.
While HTC continues to flail and fumble its way into a competitive market position with the One series and an alleged tablet, the facts are clear: the company is seriously hurting. Today the company formally announced a lost revenue between July and August 2012. Those numbers? $804M in August, down from $835M in July.
Wondering when the HTC Desire X will become available? Wonder no more, we have the first indication of when and for how much you will be able to get the new Desire X. A listing went up on the Clove.co.uk online shop, revealing the Desire X’ price and approximate availability date.
We haven’t had the chance to compile a thorough review of the Desire X or even get some one-on-one time with it at the IFA 2012, but HTC has done us a favor and has put an official “first look” video of the phone up on YouTube.
The first gadget to be unveiled by HTC at the IFA is a far from impressive budget-friendly phone which might get lost in the crowd if it won’t be priced correctly. The Desire X has been leaked for a while, has starred in a bunch of unofficial photos and has had an almost complete spec sheet since a couple of days ago. Here are press photos and confirmed specs.
Boy, that escalated quickly! 48 hours ago nobody even knew about the existence of a soon to be released HTC Desire X phone, and now we’ve seen the new handheld in all its splendor and we also know (or think we know) pretty much all of its tech specs.
The recently surfaced HTC Proto is the latest budget offering from the Taiwanese. While it has been rumored to become the successor to the HTC One V, the phone may be joining HTC’s Desire lineup instead, and it will reportedly be known as the HTC Desire X.
