HTC Desire U headed to Taiwan
Usually the budget devices don’t get the fancy “extravagant” treatment the expensive ones do. As is the case with HTC Desire U, recently HTC has released a spec sheet for the new smartphone which is being targeted towards Taiwanese market. The cleverly named HTC Desire U (HTC Desire YOU), might be a medium range phone, but it does not look the part.
HTC Desire U is potentially a very elegant cross between HTC’s top tier “One” series and the “desire” series. The smartphone features a rather bold back design too, it’s kind of the love it or hate it one. As for me the rippling circles are doing a fine job. The plastic smooth body with the strategically placed circles do look hypnotizing and. The front of the HTC Desire U is the same ol same ol one, with HTC’s staple on screen buttons. That may be a problem as the HTC Desire U has an already smaller screen, the screen space hogging buttons may be a turn off for many.
Even though the HTC Desire U looks like a top end smartphone, the internals are a stark contrast. A 1 GHz single core processor, 512 MB RAM and 4 GB of internal storage memory makes it rather less desirable for those who were looking for a small beast. The 4 inch WVGA screen supports a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. HTC Desire U also houses a respectable 1650 mAh battery which will be able to provide a nice run time, especially with the low end specs.
Not many will be looking forward to import the HTC Desire U, even if it desires you. But we are certain that the smartphone will serve well in the intended market, especially with a price tag of around $275. We will update if HTC decides to release this on other regions as well.
