HTC's new Desire S was expected to be released on Apr. 18 in Europe, but now it seems that some retailers may be stocking the device a little earlier. On its blog the UK-based Clove Technology says that it'll be receiving Desire S stock "a little earlier than initially expected", during the last week of March.
The Desire S will be the first of HTC's Gingerbread phones to launch. Like the Wildfire S, which will arrive sometime during the second quarter, it runs HTC Sense 2.1 on top of Android 2.3. Clove is currently listing the Desire S for pre-order with a price of £406.80 (~$650). [Clove Technology Blog]
