We have some good news for those of you who were impressed with the HTC Desire S unveiling at MWC 2011, as just a few days after it’s reveal we already have a release date and price for those who reside in the UK.

As reported from Phandroid, Amazon has once again dished the dirt on the release date and price for the device, with the online retailer becoming rather infamous for spilling the details weeks before HTC or it’s relevant carrier manage to do so.

If Amazon’s listing turns out to be legit, the HTC Desire S will be available to buy on April 18th, and will be priced at £420 – a price which obviously relates to the unlocked version of the device.

The question is though, will you be picking up the upgraded version of the HTC Desire? We say ‘upgraded’ but the list of new specs are not all that impressive. The only key factors in the HTC Desire S that stick out for us, is the addition of a front facing camera, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Other than that, we have to say that we’re a little bit disappointed that HTC didn’t beef up the device a little more.

Once we receive information regarding a US release and pricing, we’ll be sure to let you know. You can check out a full recap of the Desire S specs over on the official product listing here.
