Ok, it's not a contract deal, expect fuill price details of those to be along in the coming weeks. But if you want the forthcoming HTC Desire S on a sim-free deal, Amazon is the place to look.The online retailer has opened up pre-orders for the phone we featured last week at launch, an updated version of the big-selling Desire with an aluminium casing and offering the HTC Sense interface, with access to the Sense.com network too. The price of that is £419.99 without the contract, with a launch date estimated to be 18th April. Which is probably a good guide as to when the contract deals will land too, should you be running down a contract right now. Orange, Three and Vodafone have all publicly stated they will be selling the HTC Desire S when it hits the UK.Aside from Sense and the aluminium body, the Desire S features Qualcomm’s new 1GHz Snapdragon MSM8255 processor, with dual front and back cameras (5-megapixel for the former), high-definition video recording and a 3.7-inch WVGA display and Android 2.4 is said to be the operating system, which is the upgraded version of Gingerbread. It's an impressive smartphone, that's for sure.If you want one, you know where to go.
