As expected, the HTC Desire C is now available in the UK and will soon make its way to other countries across Europe. The HTC Desire C is the latest budget-friendly Android 4.0 handset from HTC. When you say budget-friendly, we’re talking about a free phone paired with a £13 (roughly $20) monthly contract which gives you 100 minutes, 5,000 texts and 250MB of monthly data. Anyone looking to buy the HTC Desire C off-contract can find it at T-Mobile and Orange for £169 while Three is looking to beat its competition by offing the handset for £149.

The HTC Desire C runs on Android 4.0 with HTC Sense 4.0 and features a 3.5-inch HVGA (320 x 480) display, 600 MHz Qualcomm processor, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of internal storage, microSD card slot, 5 megapixel camera, Beats Audio, and a 1,230 mAh battery. From what we can tell, the handset available from Orange, T-Mobile and Three is the standard model, but you will soon be able to purchase an NFC-enabled version of the Desire C for a slight premium.

Besides its looks, the HTC Desire C does not have anything in common with HTC’s flagship devices, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The HTC Wildfire and Wildfire S were very popular phones in Europe because of the value they offered and we’d expect the Desire C to at least live up to its predecessors’ successes.

Would you ever consider buying a device like the HTC Desire C as a starter phone for a family member or would you rather get them a used flagship phone from a year ago for around the same price?
