HTC brings the Desire X to Australia, exclusive to Optus for $299
HTC and Optus have today unveiled their latest offering, the HTC Desire X. Seeing as though Telstra have an exclusive deal with the Desire C, this gives Optus a phone that is that little bit more powerful.
For the price of $299 outright, the Desire X is a really great phone and will provide some direct competition for the likes of the LG Optimus L7. If you want a big screen, go for the L7. If you want a well-rounded and mature UI overlay with a decent (supposedly) camera, then go for the Desire X – simple.
Ben Hodgson, HTC Country Manager Australia and New Zealand said:
The HTC Desire X is a powerful all-round performer, with dual-core power, a brilliant four-inch, crisp display and a class-leading camera that gets great results every time … We are committed to offering strong alternatives to Australian consumers looking for a smartphone to suit their individual lifestyles and the HTC Desire X not only looks and sounds great, but is a premium, compact device that provides a super-fast, highly personal mobile experience at a great price.
The press release says that the Desire X is running Sense 4.0a, which I have double checked to make sure. I’ll update the article when I hear back from HTC.
|Operating System||Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.x|
|Processor||Dual-core 1 GHz|
|Screen||4.0″ (480 x 800 pixels)|
|Storage||4GB Internal memory with an expandable micro SD card slot|
If you’re interested in grabbing the Desire X then it’ll be available from Optus shortly for $0 upfront on the $35 plan (over 24 months) or for $299 outright.
