Red HTC Desire 601 now available exclusively at O2 UK
In the UK, O2 has started selling the new red version of the HTC Desire 601. This color variation is exclusive to this particular operator in the UK, so if you’re over there and want your midrange HTC device to come in red, O2 is pretty much your only choice.
The HTC Desire 601 was announced in September and it comes with a 4.5-inch 540×960 touchscreen, a 5 MP rear camera, a VGA front camera, a 1.4 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, microSD card support, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 2,100 mAh battery. It runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
The Desire 601 is being offered by O2 for £239.99 on Pay&Go, or starting at free with two-year Pay Monthly contracts. The cheapest deal that nets you the handset for free costs £17 per month. For that amount of cash you get 300 minutes, unlimited texts, and 500 MB of data each month.
There are a couple of cheaper plans, but those do require paying something for the device upfront. Alternatively, you can choose the O2 Refresh thingie, which comes with unlimited voice and text and 1 GB, 5 GB, or 8 GB of 4G data, respectively for £17, £22, or £27. Everything is nicely detailed on O2′s website, which is where you should be headed if you want to pick up the red HTC Desire 601.
