HTC Desire U announced for Taiwan
Check out the specs on HTC's latest mid-range device
HTC has a brand new mid-range device called the Desire U. Yes, another Desire. But stay calm, this one's not for us; rather, the budget-friendly, mid-range device is intended for the Taiwan market.
Externally, it looks quite similar to its counterparts from both the One and Desire lineups. In fact, it looks like it could be twins with HTC's 4-inch Desire X (actually, the two devices share similar internals, too). But back to the hardware for a minute: You'll notice that same smooth, plastic look and sleek, rounded edges.
Just like the aforementioned Desire X, the Desire U's announcement page notes that it sports a smaller, 4-inch screen. It also has 1GHz processor, 4GB of storage, 512 of RAM and a 1650 mAh battery (that should produce a fair amount of juice for what it has to work with).
While the Desire U is poised for competition in the respective market, you may be able to score one unlocked. According to the folks over at Android Central, unlocked versions of the device are currently going for about $275.
As far as HTC gear goes, we're particularly pumped for the M7 we keep hearing so much about. The highly rumored device is now expected to launch a full week ahead of Mobile World Congress 2013, with a suspected date of Feb. 19.
