HTC has launched a new entry level smartphone in its home country Taiwan, the HTC Desire U. The smartphone is aimed at students and first time smartphone users so we can rest our expectations of big apps or any jazz technological features. The HTC Desire U is constructed with the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. The Desire U has a 4 inch touchscreen with WVGA display with resolution of 800×480. It is built with a 1GHz single core processor and comes with 512MB of RAM. The smartphone has a 5MP rear camera with LED flash and autofocus. Connectivity options for this phone include 3G, WiFi b/g/n, GSM/GPRS/EDGE 900/1800/1900 MHz and HSPA/WCDMA 900/2100 MHz and Bluetooth 4.0. The Desire U comes with an internal memory of 4GB is expandable via Micro SD card. The phone comes with a 1650 mAh removable battery which is not a very powerful battery pack for a phone with such limited features. The phone will be available in Black and white colours. For a budget the phone has interesting set of features, even looks wise the phone appears trendy and will appeal to the targeted audience. The phone will be initially launched in the Chinese and Taiwanese markets. the release date has not been confirmed yet. The phone might be later released in Asian markets and we can expect it on the Indian shores where there is a huge market for budget phones, but we cannot give any confirmed views on this yet.
