HTC Desire 816 And The Desire 610 Available For Pre Order In Europe

Desire 816

The only two HTC smartphones to break cover at the MWC, the Desire 816 and the Desire 610, have now gone up for pre order in Germany. And contrary to previous reports, it seems like the two devices won’t go easy on customers’ wallets after all.

Amazon Germany has the Desire 816 listed for €379 ($525) while the slightly smaller Desire 610 will cost €299 ($414). The prices in China were reported to be much low, but HTC probably doesn’t see it feasible to match that pricing with these regions. However, this is only a pre-order listing as of now, so it would be unwise to read too much into it before we have confirmation coming directly from HTC.

The retailer hasn’t given out a shipping date yet, so it’s hard to ascertain when the device will arrive at your doorsteps, but we could have a word on that soon as HTC announces global availability dates. Make sure you give these listings a brief look if you live in Germany, although waiting until the official prices are unveiled seems like the logical thing to do at this point.
