The latest HTC Desire member, the S, has appeared on O2’s coming soon site, stating a not-so vague April 2011 release.
The Desire S looks to be the only phone O2 have chosen to stock from HTC’s newest range of phones. You’ll have to look elsewhere for HTC’s ChaCha, Incredible S or Wildfire S- or fork out the money upfront for a SIM-free model.
The Desire S will have the latest version of Google’s Android, Gingerbread (2.3) inside an aluminium unibody frame, with rear and front-facing cameras, the latter making video-calls very much possible.
There are other more complicated processor and memory tweaks to improve app loading and web browsing speed. (We’re keeping a beady eye on battery-life.)
Looks like we’ll be waiting until midway through March for a review model. More on the Desire S when we do.
