After announcing the Desire P just 2-3 days back in Taiwan, HTC has announced the launch of another smartphone under its Desire line up in the home land. Dubbed as HTC Desire Q, the smartphone features 4-inch WVGA display and is priced at NT$6,990 ($234 or €182).

HTC Desire Q

In terms of specifications, HTC Desire Q comes powered with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich along with 1GHz processor, 512MB RAM and 4GB internal memory. It also packs 5MP camera on the back, microSD card slot and a powerful 1650 mAh battery.

Looking at the specs, we can easily say that the HTC Desire Q boasts almost the same specs and features as existing Desire U. We are surprised to see Android Ice cream sandwich OS instead of Android Jelly Bean powering the smartphone. The device was speculated to come powered with Android Jelly Bean. The existence of Android 4.0 in the Desire Q was not expected at least from the company like HTC.

Connectivity features of the smartphone include Bletooth, Wi-Fi and GPS.

HTC Desire Q is now available in Taiwan via telecom operator FarEasTone. There is still no word regarding its global launch outside Taiwan.
