As expected, the HTC Desire 601 is making its way to more than one Canadian carrier. Following Rogers’ announcement that it would launch it on November 4, both Fido and Koodo have announced to carry the mid-range device as well. Fido made its announcement via Twitter while Koodo did so via Facebook.
Great news! The powerful HTC Desire, superfast and with a 5 MP camera, will soon be available at Fido.
