HTC Desire (original model) to be discontinued soon -Last stock selling through–pick up a piece of history

imageThe HTC Desire has just essentially been replaced with the all new and updated HTC Desire S

However the HTC Desire has without doubt been one of the most popular smartphones of the last 12 months with thousands adopting the handset each month.  It is one of the smartphones that has been responsible for the boom in Android and smartphone ownership.

Here at Clove, 3 staff members, including myself have owned and loved it.

It just works fantastically.  It is a great size in screen and thickness, powerful and capable of a days work.

However as with all smartphones there is a time when they are no longer made or sold, and now is that time for the Desire to be laid to rest in the history books and in our opinion be awarded a honorary title of one of the most popular smartphones of all time.

imageWhilst HTC have not just yet given notice of ceasing production, we have been informed that no more will be coming into the UK.

There are just a few handsets still available in the UK channel in varying colour variants.


In stock at Clove we have the HTC Desire Graphite and the HTC Desire in White.

To top this off both units have recently been reduced in price, with the White coming in at just £219 + VAT.

If you have yet to invest in a smartphone, want a backup, think a family member could do with one, then you can not go wrong with the HTC Desire; just look at the features:

  • Google Android 2.2 with HTC Sense interface
  • 1GHz Processor
  • 3.7 inch SLCD display for better quality image resolution whilst using less power
