HTC Desire for 3UK available for pre-order, ships April 23

The HTC Desire is the class of Android phones available in the UK, and 3UK is getting in on the action. Androinica reader Daz just pointed out that the Desire is now up for pre-order at ThreeStore, 3′s official online store.

The Desire’s cost depends on the tariff selected. The phone is free to anyone who signs-up for the £35 Internet Texter program (2-year tariff for 750 minutes, unlimited text, web, 3-to-3 calls, and Skype-to-Skype). The Desire will cost anywhere from £99.99 to £199.99 for an 18-month tariff. No off-contract price is listed, but it was previously reported to cost £349.99 for PAYG users.

The HTC Desire Graphite will ship to customers beginning Friday April 23. When first announced at Mobile World Congress, the Nexus One relative instantly became one of the most coveted phones on the market. Click here for more information on the Desire.
