HTC Desire sees a price drop, now only for INR 15K?

The original HTC Desire seems have seen a big price drop in the Indian market and is now selling for just 15,000. But this pricing seems to be only limited to Saholic.com, which a recent Spice group venture. We are expecting other retailers to follow suit.

If you were looking to go for this, then it is the right time for you. To remind you of the specs, HTC Desire comes with Android 2.2, 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, HTC Sense, 5MP camera and 3.7 inch display.

Thanks Rajesh for the tip

  1. It is original product, seal and with full manufacturer warranty, as is also clearly mentioned on the site. I searched for Saholic on the net and there are news stories where their management has clearly mentioned that they sell only trusted branded products with full manufacturer’s warranty. Besides a brand like spice, which owns saholic will never risk its image by selling second hand stuff. I also talked to help line in saholic and they confirmed that it is new and original product with full warranty.

  2. Well original wildfire s is at 13500 so this has got to be some scam. I just don’t get the logic of dropping the price of a set bcoz its going out of production bcoz it still has the upper hand as far as specs are concerned.

    Prices of lower end HTC sets will also fall like this bfore it comes to this price.

    Anyone thinking of buying this.. think twice… bcoz if the peice is second hand or with some defect you will regret not buying an original wildfire s.

  3. Yes this may be a scam but the price of Nexus S also fell down to 20k, so there may be some other logic. Spice MI 410 with same specs is launched for 14k so they may fear that their single core 1Ghz sets will no be sold on such a high price.

  4. The ones being sold on Saholic are new and sealed. Not second hand or defective. I have confirmed this as a friend of mine ordered one on Friday and got it on Saturday. I think it is perhaps more of price rationalization by HTC than price drop – the market is getting flooded with more android phones, and manufaturers cannot over-charge, esp because with android they save a lot on software development.

  5. woooohoooo…. i got one ๐Ÿ˜› they are going out of stock soon! its like i won a lottery! wow am a owner of a HTC Desire ๐Ÿ˜›

    PS: I bought it from Spice Hotspot in gurgaon, few shops still selling it at 22k ๐Ÿ˜›

  6. Why they are selling at such a cheap price…

    Because the version on Saholic is S-LCD version. Its not the same as the original Desire AMOLED display. Therefore by compromising on screen they are able to bring down the price. Its the same as in the case of Original Samsung Galaxy S and Galaxy S-LCD.

  7. Hi from Saholic.com.
