The HTC Desire P is real: Released into Taiwan!

   HTC might be going with a single flagship device this year through the HTC One, but that doesn't mean that they aren't going to give the mid and lower range markets something to chew on too! If you're after 4G on a budget, there's already the HTC One SV and naturally there's the Desire C and phones like that if you want something a lot cheaper.

   We saw it leaked a little while back, but we can now add the HTC Desire P to that list too. The only thing is that the phone is an exclusive to Chunghwa Telecom, Taiwan’s biggest telecommunications company and we're not sure if the phone will leave HTC's homeland.

   So what's on the inside? Well the screen you'll be look at is a 4.3-inch 480×800p Super LCD2 touchscreen, which basically puts this in the same ball park as the Samsung Galaxy S2 in terms of resolution, so not bad, but not the best by today's standards. There's also  an 8 MP autofocus camera with LED flash, although there won't be any selfies taken with this phone, because there's no camera on the front. Other than that a 1 GHz dual-core processor, 768 MB of RAM and at the moment there's no official word on the version of Android this is all running, but it's expected to be Android 4.0.4 with Sense 4.1 over the top. The package is rounded out by 4 GB of built-in storage space, a microSD card slot, HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, Beats Audio, and a decent 1,620 mAh battery.

    For somewhere in the region of $364, £239 or €285 you could probably do worse than this phone, and it's definitely a good contender to the HTC Desire X, if you were interested in that!
