HTC has officially launched one of its most awaited smartphones – HTC Desire C in India. The handset sports a 3.5 HVGA touchscreen display and is equipped with a 5 Mega Pixel rear camera.

It runs on Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) Operating System and has a resolution of 320×480 pixel. The company will launch the model with HTC Sense User Interface 4.0.
