HTC Desire V & C Launched in Malaysia

Following the recent launch to their high end HTC One series Android smartphones (HTC One X in April and HTC One S just last week), they followed up with the successors to the mid range HTC Desire series with HTC Desire V and HTC Desire C.

I had the original HTC Desire, which was my primary phone for the longest time of almost 1.5 years. No other Android phones at that moment swayed me away from my trusty HTC Desire. Not even the multiple reiterations of the Desire.

Now, with the latest HTC Desire V and C, although no longer in the high end space (taken over by the HTC One series instead), they’re both still awesome Android smartphones to own. Some of the features highlighted includes :-

  • Beats by Dr Dre integration for exceptional sound quality
  • Premium HTC designs (HTC said that they will not make low-end entry level phones anymore)
  • Powered by Android OS 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (with HTC Sense 4)
  • FREE 25GB Dropbox online storage space

Let’s get straight to the details of these phones.
