Earlier we have mentioned that HTC is focusing on India mobile handset market with a sense of enormous potential and a wide range on smartphones, be it Android or Windows Phone 7, has been introduced by HTC in December last year. Interestingly HTC is cautious to introduce only those smartphones which are running on updated platform like Froyo( Android 2.2) or Windows Phone 7 OS.

After Desire HD and HD7, another latest Android platform based smartphone “HTC Desire Z” has been up for pre-booking at various online mobile shopping portals like Infibeam and Flipkart. Though both the web properties are claiming to get the phone pretty soon with similar specifications, a countable difference has been noticed in the price offered by Flipkart and Infibeam.

While FliPKart is committing to accept the pre-booking of HTC Desire Z with the price tag of Rs.25,799/-, Infibeam is offering the same at just Rs. 17,000/-. The only difference, we have noticed, is the clearly quoted release date as 3rd January on FlipKart.com.

At this point of time we have no idea about sales or marketing strategy of both the companies but close analysis of the mobile offerings by both the companies signs a stiff marketing competition from last couple of months. Almost same handset range, very competitive price tag and similar release or pre-order dates are clear indications that both the companies are ready for head-to-head antagonism.

We have tried to have clarification from both the companies on such valuable price difference but there is no response from both the companies till now.

HTC Desire Z is a legendary Android 2.2 ( Froyo) based Smartphone with Wi-Fi tethering, Adobe flash and Google account support. Though, the 3.7 inch capacitive display is relatively smaller but multi-touch feature and 5 megapixel autofocus camera with 720p HD video recording provide an extra edge to HTC Desire Z users. Running on 800 Mhz processor with 1.5 GB internal memory provide a comfortable environment for future scalability.

The biggest charm comes with slide-out QWERTY keyboard, like upcoming Nokia E7, which allows users to have enhanced control over text activities. Here we get a visual analysis of HTC Desire Z to our users which will surely help you to rate this against value-for-money.

We will shortly update on exact price tag of HTC Desire Z once we receive an update from Infibeam or Flipkart. At this point of time we can only guess that probably one may be getting confused with HTC HD Desire Z, another revolutionary smartphone, yet to debut in India.
