HTC Desire 500 might become available in the UK on September 6
The HTC Desire 500 first went up for pre-order in the UK a couple of weeks ago. The handset was re-announced by HTC for Europe shortly before that. Thanks to the pre-order listings from back then, we already know that the Desire 500 should cost around £230. But what we haven’t had so far was an actual release date for the rather affordable smartphone.
The HTC Desire 500 could become available in the UK on September 6. This is according to Unlocked Mobiles, a well known online retailer of SIM-free devices. It has also started taking pre-orders for the Desire 500, but unlike other companies it was kind enough to provide a shipping date as well, tentative as it may be.
The Desire 500 is a little more expensive at Unlocked Mobiles than it is at Mobile Fun, which is the first retailer we know of to have started taking pre-orders for this handset. You’ll need to pay £234.98 if you get it from Unlocked Mobiles, but at least you have a rough idea of when it will arrive at your doorstep.
Elsewhere, Clove is offering the phone for £226.80, which so far is the best price, but this particular retailer only expects to have the Desire 500 in stock in “late September”.
