UK: HTC Desire S, ChaCha and Wildfire S headed to Vodafone, Orange and Three
Three of HTC’s new Android smartphones – the Desire S, Wildfire S, and ChaCha – are headed to three mobile operators in the UK: Vodafone, Orange, and Three. And yes, I know I’ve used the word three three times in a (let’s call it) sentence.
The HTC Desire S is an Android 2.3 Gingerbread refresh of the Desire launched one year ago. The main improvements over the previous model are in the memory compartment (1.1 GB ROM, 768 MB RAM), and the video recording capabilities (the Desire S does 720p@30fps). The new Desire also comes with a VGA front-facing camera for video calling.
The HTC Wildfire S is, of course, the successor of the first Wildfire. It features Android Gingerbread, a 3.2 inch HVGA display, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, 600Mhz processor, and a 5MP camera.
As for the HTC ChaCha, this has a dedicated Facebook button, a full QWERTY keyboard, a 2.6 inch HVGA touchscreen display, Wi-Fi, HSDPA, GPS, 800MHz processor, and a 5MP camera.
For the moment, there’s no word on when exactly these three smartphones will be available to UK customers.
