Cricket Wireless has announced that it is now selling the HTC Desire C, an entry-level smartphone that offers Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and Beats Audio, for the retail price of $179.99. The Desire C has a 3.5-inch HVGA display and a 5 megapixel camera capable of capturing photos and videos. Along with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich software, the phone features the HTC Sense 4.0 software that adds many customizations for user interface, apps, and features.
The HTC Desire C was first announced by HTC in May for European markets, but this marks the phone's debut on Cricket. The phone comes with a few benefits for music lovers. The phone ships with Beats Audio technology, which provides equalizer settings to personalize the sound quality of the music app. Cricket also includes its Muve music streaming and download service as part of its monthly smartphone calling and data plans. The HTC Desire C comes with 25GB of online storage on Dropbox, so buyers can backup their songs, photos, videos, documents, and other files to have added cloud storage that they can access on the web or on their mobile devices.
The HTC Desire C is now on sale at Cricket retail stores and at mycricket.com. The phone can be paired with no contract plans starting at $50 per month.
