The HTC Desire U (T327W), a 1GHz single core powered smartphone is now available on the Flipkart website for a price tag of Rs. 13,499.  The handset sports a 4 inch screen and 5MP rear camera.

Flipkart is also offering 8GB memory card free and EMI options, plus an additional 5% discount for a limited period only. Though the specifications look quite outdated, it is from a well known brand for brand conscious users, still the price is just too high.

This handset supports dual SIM running the Android 4.0 OS over a 4 inch super LCD screen with WVGA resolution. The HTC Desire U is 9.3mm thick and weight is 114 grams. It comes loaded with 512MB RAM and 4GB internal storage.

Other features included are Wi-Fi, 3G, 2G, Bluetooth and beats audio. There is micro USB port and 3.5mm audio jack. There is a 5MP rear camera with LED flash and there is no front camera.

The handset gets powered from a 1650 mAh Li-ion battery. The price of Rs. 13,499 is definitely too high and there is nothing unique on this handset that will encourage the consumers. A better bet would be to buy the Galaxy Grand or the Galaxy Quattro.
