This isn't our first time we have spent with the HTC Desire X, however we do now have in our possession a review unit that HTC kindly sent me today.

Although in comparison to some of the more recent HTC Android devices released the Desire X is pretty low down the line in terms of being near the top of the range - but that is where it is designed to sit. It is a low cost, mid range handset but still packs a pretty mean punch.

Powered by a 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 768MB of RAM and a 4-inch WVGA SuperLCD display the Desire X will suit many people down to the ground. With the familiar Sense UI present (now version 4.1), customers upgrading from an older HTC device will still find the Desire X familiar yet refreshing. Running Android Ice Cream Sandwich the Desire X may not be as up to date as some 'top of the range' phones but the general public probably won't know the difference and ICS runs smoothly and seamlessly on the handset.

Combined with a 5MP camera and the ability to capture photos while using the video camera, the Desire X will more than likely be one of those devices where a consumer walks into a phone shop and spots it on the shelf and automatically thinks how nice it both looks and feels.

We will of course have a full review of the HTC Desire X coming soon but in the meantime I hope the above video will keep you going if you are looking to purchase the device.
