Carphone Warehouse to stock HTC Desire 500

Bringing the best bits of HTC at an affordable price, it’s the Desire 500 and it’s now available at Carphone Warehouse. They have become the first UK retailer to start this device and you can hook it into all the major mobile networks.

If you enjoy HTC BoomSound or the Sense interface with HTC BlinkFeed and don’t want to spend too much, you’re in luck.

The Desire 500 will also pack an 8-megapixel camera with dedicated HTC ImageChip processor for full HD video also. There’s a 1.6-megapixel camera for video calls and selfies too, all with face and smile recognition plus a selection of filters.

The device is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and sports a 4.3-inch screen. It also supports up to 64GB microSD cards and is powered by a 1800mAh battery for 401 hours of standby time.

Pricing has not been announced at this time but this is a mid-range handset so it shouldn’t sting too badly for that pretty capable spec list.
