Virgin Mobile calls on HTC Desire for latest smartphone

Virgin Mobile on Monday announced the immediate availability of the HTC Desire. Not to be mistaken for the 2010 smartphone of the same name, this is a no-contract version of the Desire 601 introduced only this fall.

Powered by Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, the 4G LTE handset is more likely to be confused with the HTC One. Specifications are more mid-range, of course, which should be expected considering the $279.99 price tag.

Hardware includes a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage (microSD expansion), and a 5-megapixel rear camera. Featuring the same HTC enhancements that come with the 2013 line of smartphones, the Desire includes BoomSound, Zoe, and BlinkFeed. The standard fare of connectivities are also present including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, and GPS.
