The HTC Desire has been so successful in Europe that carriers have trouble keeping it in stores. U.S. Cellular and Cellular South may have that problem soon as both regional carriers are expected to offer the phone this summer.

HTC posted on Twitter this morning that the Desire would arrive at regional U.S. carriers, and Cellular South confirmed that it will offer the Desire, a device with a 3.7 inch screen, Android 2.1, HTC Sense, and a 1GHz Snapdragon processor. (U.S. Cellular already confirmed in April that it would offer the device).

Neither carrier has offered information on pricing, but the HTC Twitter account stated that the Desire would arrive in the U.S. this August. It’s still unclear if HTC will deliver a CDMA version of its popular device or if they will create a version that shares nothing with that device other than name and operating system, as it did with the Sprint/Cellular South Hero.
