And just as soon as HTC announces that the HTC Desire is coming to the United States in August, regional carrier Cellular South puts out a release of its own saying that it's getting the Android 2.1 device "soon." That gives Cell South its third Android phone, including the HTC Hero and the upcoming Motorola Milestone.
No exact date or pricing yet, so stay tuned. Full presser after the break.
RIDGELAND, Miss.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cellular South, the nation’s largest privately held wireless communications provider, announced plans today to offer the HTC Desire™, one of the most advanced Android™-powered touchscreen smartphones in the world. The HTC Desire is one of several new Android-based smartphones the carrier plans to launch this year.
Featuring a superfast, 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor that encourages easy and seamless multi-tasking, the latest Android™ 2.1 platform and access to more than 70,000 applications on Android Market™, the Desire features the latest HTC Sense™ experience.
The device, which the company expects to bring to market this summer, will feature built-in Google mobile services, including Google Search™, Google Maps™, Gmail™, YouTube™ and Google Maps Navigation™ BETA with voice-aided, turn-by-turn directions. More details will be available soon on other features of the popular smartphone.
