HTC Desire S available for pre-order through Vodafone

Desire S to touch down in the UK April 8th

HTC handset to hit with dual cameras and 1GHz processor

Vodafone has announced it is to offer the hotly anticipated HTC Desire S with the Android 2.4 device now available for pre-order ahead of a April 8th UK release date.

Set to touch down in the UK next week, the follow up to the phenomenally successful HTC Desire handset will be available on the red-hued network free of charge when wannabe owners sign up to a two year £30 per month contract that comes equipped with 600 inclusive monthly minutes, half a gig of data and unlimited text messages.

Officially unveiled at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona last month the HTC Desire S is to run version 2.4 of Google’s Android mobile OS, Gingerbread, with a 3.7-inch touchscreen display to be joined by 768MB of RAM and a nippy 1GHz Snapdragon processor.

A rear-mounted 5-megapixel camera with auto focus, LED flash and 720p HD video recording capabilities alongside a front facing VGA camera complete the Desire S’ impressive spec sheet.

Will you be picking up the HTC Desire S next week or holding out for one of the upcoming dual-core handsets such as the Samsung Galaxy S II or the mooted Apple iPhone 5? Let us know via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
