Orange has announced the availability of Android smartphone HTC Desire C after fellow UK mobile network Three.
The offering at Orange has the Desire C on a free two-year £15.50 contract, a package that comes with 50 minutes worth of calls, 500 texts and Internet browsing. Consumers who plan to grab the handset may opt to upgrade on a 24-month £26 monthly plan, which comes with 200 minutes, unlimited texts and 750MB of data per month.
However, Three is offering the same smartphone on a low-cost £13 a month tariff, alongside 100 minutes, 5,000 texts and 250MB of monthly data.
Orange, while it has yet to offer the Desire C on pay as you go, has disclosed that it will set back £169.99 when bought with a £10 top up.
The HTC Desire C is latest Android handset from the Taiwanese smartphone maker that features a 600MHz single-core processor and a 3.5-inch HVGA (320 x 480 pixels) resolution display. The best part is that it will come with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) and Beats Audio technology out of the box, both of which are regulars on high-end devices.
