The mega-popular Desire handset from HTC also gets a revamp this year, as revealed this morning in Barcelona at MWC 2011. The sequel to the award winning handset has been given the Desire S moniker, and it again is looking mighty fine.

Android 2.3 is the OS of choice, with a 1GHz processor powering the 3.7 inch touchscreen. This time round you’ll also get 1.1GB of built in storage space as well as microSD expandable space, with 768MB of RAM.

3G, GPS, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity options sit next to a 5 MP camera in the spec stakes, while the phone overall is a touch smaller without cutting back on the screen size. Overall it feels a little tidier in the hand, thanks in part to a new single-body build.

Check out of first impressions in the video above.
