TELUS HTC Desire to be priced at $79.99 on 3-year

The Android-powered HTC desire will be hitting TELUS soon. Yesterday we found hidden prices in the source code of the TELUS Desire web page… but today we’ve got a retail inventory screenshot of the 3-year contract price. How does $79.99 sound to you?

If this is the actual price that TELUS will be releasing the Desire at it’ll do incredibly well. The Desire runs on Android 2.1 with talk of being upgraded to 2.2, has a 3.7 inch LCD display, 1GHz Snapdragon processor and a 5 megapixel camera. We also hear that the no-contract price is going to be around the $449.99 mark (not confirmed).

Good work TELUS!
