RIDGELAND, Miss.--()--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.
“We’re excited about adding the HTC Desire to our expanding line-up of Android-powered advanced touchscreen smartphones”
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.
“We’re excited about adding the HTC Desire to our expanding line-up of Android-powered advanced touchscreen smartphones,” said Kevin Hankins, chief operating officer of Cellular South. “This device takes Android to a whole new level with HTC Sense and a platform that optimizes the rich media experience for news, the mobile web, music and video applications.”
Following on the heels of Cellular South’s record-breaking introduction of its first Android-powered touchscreen smartphone and its recent announcement of plans to offer the Motorola Milestone this summer, the company is poised to become one of the leading providers of Android-powered smartphone devices to consumers and businesses.
