HTC Desire 200 officially unveiled, no launch date or price given
The idea behind the Desire 200 is that “you don’t have to pay premium prices to get an incredible HTC smartphone.” So it’s going to be a cheap device, although HTC has yet to provide specific pricing details.
The Desire 200 is quite small (108 mm tall), as it only sports a 3.5 inch HVGA (480 x 320) display. According to HTC, this is an “intelligent display” that automatically adjusts text size, and removes unwanted ads from websites.
It’s not clear what version of Android the Desire 200 runs. The video seen yesterday showed Ice Cream Sandwich, but we’d better wait for an official conformation on this. In any case, the new Desire features HSDPA, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, 5MP rear camera with F2.8 aperture and 34mm lens, an older generation Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 processor clocked at 1GHz, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 1,230 mAh battery.
The Desire 200 will be available in two color versions: black and white. It remains to be seen which markets will get it – I assume many European and Asian countries will be among them. The new handset is HTC’s second to use this naming scheme, after the Desire 600.
