HTC brings 4-inch Desire P to Taiwan's budget Android set


HTC's One may take the world by storm if it ever gets around to selling it, but meanwhile the company has to pay the bills. It's been doing that very well lately with more budget-oriented models that it sells mostly in Asia, and it looks to continue in that vein with the Taiwan-bound Desire P. It's a 4.3-inch WVGA device with unspecified Android and Sense versions, dual 1Ghz CPUs, 768MB RAM, 4GB storage, a microSD expansion slot, Beats audio and an 8-megapixel rear camera. It'll be up for grabs in "pretty" red or "sparkling" white exclusively at Taiwan's Chunghwa Telecom for a rather steep sounding $360 or so -- whether the market will bear that considering the glut of similar phones remains to be seen.

Update: Our mob savants noticed that the Desire P is the same as, or very similar to HTC's One SV, a model for the UK and US that we recently reviewed.
