HTC Desire Available Today From US Cellular for $199.95


The HTC Desire is finally officially available in the United States through regional carrier US Cellular. You can walk into a store and grab it up for $199.95 after a $70 mail-in rebate and a new two-year contract – a fitting price for a phone that still sits among some of the best HTC has to offer. This version of the HTC Desire doesn’t come with the 3.7-inch AMOLED display it originally debuted with – HTC’s been switching over to Super LCD due to shortages – but the differences are said to be nearly indistinguishable.


It also has a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a 5-megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash, GPS, WiFi, and it comes pre-installed with Android 2.1 (no word on if it’ll be jumped up to Android 2.2 in the near or distant future). Be sure to drop a line over at the HTC Desire section of our forumsAndroidForums.com – to get more acquainted with the device before and/or after you’ve gotten it in your hands.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. I am so glad that USCC is finally getting some real phones. Now I can finally ditch my v710 :-P

  2. all regional carriers are getting in on Android, great news.

  3. this phone should be getting froyo in september or october from what i know working for the company enjoy the desire

  4. Sprint needs to release this phone to replace the Hero

  5. Um why U.S. Cellular. I would love to have this on AT&T but their too damn thick headed on their shitty iPhone. and all the smaller carriers around the u.s. gets the Desire but have weak ass signal.

  6. Sprint needs to get the next best again like the HTC Scorpion. Retire the Hero and as for the Desire, it’s a great phone but it came out 6 months ago, which is starting to become ancient in the Android world.


    just because they’re regional doesn’t mean they get “weak ass signal”. at&t has some of the worst service of all. i have never met a truly satisfied at&t customer. regional carriers still cover large cities, like us cellular in chicago and they provide better service and coverage in those areas than any of the major 4. you can’t say regional carriers suck because they’re regional, nationwide carriers have huge disadvantages over regional carriers in most cases too.

  8. guys just dimiss all the new android phones coming out or arrive soon. Just keep your eyes and ears in sight (plus your sixth sense) to the Dell Streak. This low-pressed low profile phone nobody has will top any smartphone to date….ok stop rambling im going to bed…with my streak

  9. Did anyone know that the Samsung Acclaim is also for U.S. Cellular?

  10. @JJFNIGHT,
    If you ever leave town I would think the advantages of a nationwide carrier would more than offset their less than perfect coverage everywhere.

  11. Umm, why not U.S. Cellular JJ? In my area (Mendocino County, Northwestern California) USCC has the best coverage of the 5 providers (AT&T, Verizon, USCC, T-Mobile, Metro PCS).

  12. overall us cellular has the best coverage and service period no roaming charges free incoming calls text and pix just great coverage and not to mention the customer service is great far better than any other phone company i have came in contact with if jj doesnt like it he can stay unhappy with his service
