Vodafone Portugal blows the HTC Desire C's cover

Vodafone Portugal blows the HTC Desire C's coverWe've seen a fair bit of this little fella of late, but nothing official just yet. We originally got to know him as the HTC Golf before being led to believe his full name would be the Wildfire C, only to find he'd finally settled on being known as the Desire C instead.

Although HTC hasn't confirmed details officially, we've now had the next best thing: it's now appeared in a Vodafone catalogue (albeit Vodafone Portugal) for this month with a photo and its full specs. Oops.

So, without further ado, allow us to furnish you with them:

We're talking Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (that goes without saying, really) plus a display measuring some 3.5-inches of HVGA resolution. Plus all the other bits and bobs you would naturally expect these days including HSDPA, Wi-Fi, Assisted GPS, a not-so-shabby 5MP camera and HTC's Beats Audio.

We'd be surprised if Beats Audio weren't on the list, to be honest. Yes, it was a bit of a premium only product a few months back, but HTC has invested so heavily in the technology, it is now pushing it as much as it can.

Although you'll no longer get a free pair of posh Beats Audio 'phones in the box because they're too expensive for a company that didn't post the best results recently.

Internal memory is set to be capped at 4GB but hopefully, you'll be able to expand that (we say hopefully as once upon a time, we'd have assumed that was a given whereas now, Android manufacturers bizarrely are increasingly leaving out the SD card slots.

This baby probably won't be too capable of taxing work since it will come with a meagre single core 600MHz processor - but what do you expect from something around about the £200 mark sim-free?

All we need now is for HTC to acknowledge it actually exists!

If they charge £200 for that they'll need a lot of mugs to buy them as that's ludicrous for that spec unless they can release it in 2009.

If they do release it in 2009 it should have dropped in price by now. Probably pick one up on ebay for under £100. Not bad for a £200 phone... :p
