HTC Desire S at a Glance
Last April 28, 2011, I got hold of one of the latest smart phones from HTC Corporation – “HTC Desire S” at the Icon Resto Bar at Intercontinental Hotel in Makati. It was a night of good food, drinks and pretty ladies all-in-one place. HTC promised its a whole new experience for HTC Desire users. As a successor to the popular and award-winning HTC Desire, the new HTC Desire S blends stunning design with power and speed.
The first thing you’ll notice is the sleek new design. A subtle curve at the bottom with HTC’s trademark aluminum unibody makes it feel solid and natural to hold in your hand. With Qualcomm’s new 1GHz Snapdragon™ MSM8255 processor, the HTC Desire S offers snappy performance and power. With dual front and back cameras, High-Definition video recording and a 3.7-inch WVGA display, the HTC Desire S presents multimedia content brilliantly, hitting the sweet spot for people who want a premium smartphone experience that is personal, fun and does it all.
