Martin had a seriously good moan about the lackluster HTC Desire X (nee Proto) a few hours ago. Sadly, it’s the Taiwanese manufacturer’s only offering at this year’s IFA over in Berlin. Sob.
However, if Martin hasn’t put you off entirely, you might be interested in a cheeky HTC Desire X deal – exclusive to Phones 4u.
Firstly, Phones 4u will debut the HTC Desire X in white, with "a significant lead to market". If history has taught us anything, it’s that people like a white smartphone.
Better still, on tariffs above £26, Phones 4u will offer the HTC Desire X with a free pair of Beats Solo over-ear headphones “worth £150”. A quick google search shows them going for £105.59 at Handtec. Just saying.
Interested? You can pre-register your interest in the HTC Desire X (and Samsung Galaxy Note 2, incidentally) over at Phones 4u, right here.
HTC Desire X specs include a 4in display (480 x 800), 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 768 MB of RAM, 5MP rear camera, 4GB internal storage (augmentable via microSD), and Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0).
It’s hardly going to turn HTC’s ailing fortunes around, but it doesn’t sound too bad. Having said that, we can’t wait for the HTC Incredible Sensation X – essentially the same phone with 1GB of RAM.
