India Gets HTC Desire, Galaxy 3, Galaxy 5


Whether you’re seeking a high -end Android or a run of the mill Android, folks in India should be happy to hear they’ve got some new versions of each coming to their market.

While in some countries the Desire comes loaded up with the most recently yummy Android 2.2 Froyo, the Indian flavor consists of only 2.1. With a 3.7-inch screen, 1GHz processor, 5MP and “the works” in terms of connectivity, the HTC Desire should please the high-end tech craving Indian. [Via Cell Passion]

The budget conscious Android shopper might prefer the Samsung Galaxy 3 (I5801) or Samsung Galaxy 5 (I5503). They’ll cost 12,300 Rs ($265) and 10,200 Rs ($222) respectively and of course come with a more modest feature set. If smaller screens, smaller processors, but more money in your pocket excites you – head over to TechTree for the details.
