The HTC’s Desire handset will be hitting US Cellular on August 27. US Cellular has made the official announcement in this regard.

The slim, stylish design of the HTC Desire has everything in it to allure customers. It comes equipped with a 3.7 inch AMOLED touchscreen that supports streaming video and graphics in vivid detail. The phone features a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU and also delivers a 5 megapixel, autofocus camera with LED flash and integrated GPS. It also comes with WiFi capabilities which will allow you to stay connected to the internet via wireless hotspots. The phone runs Android 2.1 which offers many of the familiar Google services found on the desktop. HTC Desire will deliver a fast wireless experience on U.S. Cellular’s 3G network, allowing customers to download content, browse the Internet and share pictures and videos at greater speeds.

Starting August 27, customers will be able to order the HTC Desire at local stores or online. There is no news available form US Cellular on the cost of the smartphone, but it is expected to fall somewhere between $99 and $199 with a contract.
