HTC Desire official launch Thursday

The Malaysian Android invation is not letting up. The latest Android device to enter the market will be the HTC Desire and its happening this Thursday, May 27. We’ll be there to get you the latest so stay tune.

No word on pricing yet but we’ll do some educated guessing here. The Desire’s close relative the Google Nexus One is going for about SG$800 or around RM1900 official price. Grey imports in Malaysia are around RM2500. The HTC Legend retails for about RM2000.

Looking at this, its a safe bet that the desire will be priced above RM2000 probably very close to iPhone 3GS 16GB teritory. We expect to see subsidised plans for the phone at launch as well. More details on launch day.

By the way, Maxis is looking for 10 reviewers for the HTC Desire and is running a survey to find them. You can take the survey here.
