HTC 'Golf' pictured again, will it launch as the Desire C?It seems like we've been hearing about HTC's entry-level Golf for ages now, and it's just popped up again in another couple of images, this time through the unflattering eyes of Mr Blurrycam.

The pics come our way via ITProPortal, and to be honest don't tell us very much. However, more interesting is the claim that the handset won't be launched as the Wildfire C as we were previously led to believe, but rather the HTC Desire C.

If so, it's an interesting departure, not just from what we assumed to be true but also from HTC's own naming convention, with the name Wildfire having now established itself firmly as the standard for entry-level Android value for money.

On that last point, it seems, there's no argument. The Golf is expected to arrive with a single-core processor clocked at under 1GHz, a 3.2in display running at 480 x 320 screen, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage.

But what budget-conscious mobile users will be particularly looking forward to is some cut-price Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich action, with HTC's own Sense 4.0 expected to be layered on top.

As for the final name, we're not sure whether we buy into the Desire C theory. It's certainly possible, if for no other reason than the Desire name carrying a more premium connotation than the Wildfire label. And with HTC's higher-end Android phones now carrying the One name, it does leave the Desire label free.

If only HTC could just come out and announce the thing, we might finally know for sure...

hahaha good one.. I just realise: with a bit of an accent the One X is pronounced "wonks".. at least in my head; and somehow that is fitting.
