HTC phones @ Chinese New Year prices

February 1st, 2010 | by Chan Chi-Loong

The folks at HTC just sent out a press release today on lower revised prices for their HTC smart phones in Singapore, starting from 1st Feb 2010.

All of this in a bid to entice customers for the upcoming Chinese New Year season. The Nexus One might also be a cause. In any case, that’s good news for consumers.

For those who are interested in shopping for HTC phones, here’s a list below, with prices and links to TechGoondu reviews for phones we’ve played with. All prices are in Singapore dollars.

Android phones

Phone Pix Price
HTC Magic (hands-on) $648
HTC Hero (review) $698
HTC Tattoo $468

What’s notably missing is the Nexus One, which is not available in Singapore yet unless you buy direct from Google. Which means no subsidized telco plan as yet, but some of the Techgoondu folks are such techheads they bought the phone already.

Both Alf and Gin wrote stories on getting the Nexus One to work, Alf on MMS, and Gin on the 3G issues.

Windows Mobile phones

Phone Pix Price
HTC Touch Diamond 2 (price and specs, first looks) $678
HTC Touch Pro 2 (price and specs) $788
HTC Touch HD2 (Christmas wishlist) $918
HTC Snap (first looks) $498 (camera version), $418 (non-camera version)

Of the HTC phones I’ve played with, I really fell in love with the form factor of the HTC HD2. Unfortunately it’s Windows Mobile based. Would have loved it to be an Android phone.

    Yes, these listed prices are for those without a telco plan.

    Need to know whether the price SGD 678 for Touch Diamond 2 is the non-sign plan price?
