HTC Desire 500 goes on sale at Carphone
Carphone Warehouse has bagged exclusivity on the HTC Desire 500, the latest mid-range handset from the Taiwanese phone maker.
The retailer has the exclusive on the 'Shimmer White' handset and will also stock the black version. The handset has a 4.3 inch screen, 8MP camera and 1.2GHz quad-core processor. The device also has the Blinkfeed display feature that is on the flagship HTC One.
Peter Frolund, general manager UK for HTC, said: 'The HTC Desire 500 packs all you would expect from HTC into a great mid-range package. It boasts leading audio thanks to HTC BoomSound, an 8MP camera with features like Video Highlights and our Sense user interface with BlinkFeed, which we’ve brought to the Desire range for the first time in this model. We wanted to change what people expect from a mid-range smartphone and deliver a highly competitive device that didn’t compromise on the features that make our handsets world-class. The Desire 500 achieves that.'
