HTC Desire S unboxing video

DesireS Announced just last month at MWC in Barcelona, the HTC Desire S is a continuation of the Desire bloodline that started just last year. During that year we’ve seen the Desire Z and Desire HD join the ranks and each has seen a fair degree of interest.

So what’s different about the Desire S? Well it’s pretty similar to the Desire, similar size and same 3.7″ screen. However the Desire S has a forward facing camera and better main camera and more memory. The main difference though is the aluminium unibody design. This is something we first saw on the HTC Legend last year. The whole of the Desire S body, excluding the screen and battery door, is made from a single machined piece of aluminium.

You can see the unboxing video below followed by the full specification. One thing to note though, the at MWC the Desire S was said to be coming with Android 2.4 gingerbread, however, our review sample has 2.3. Not it could be that the final retail will have 2.4 but we’ll be reviewing on 2.3
