RadioShack Wireless today added another Android-based handset to its burgeoning roster of no-contract smartphones. Available just in time for the holiday shopping season, the HTC Desire C can now be yours for a cool $119.99.

While it's certainly not going to replace your existing Android experience, it's plenty for a first-time smartphone adopter. Those who want to dip their toes in the Android waters without breaking the bank will likely appreciate the device.

Powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the Desire C features a 3.5-inch display, a 5-megapixel camera, a 600MHz processor, 512MB RAM, and 4GB internal storage. Additional details include HTC Sense 4, microSD expansion card slot, a 1,230mAh battery, NFC, and Beats Audio sound enhancement.

As is the case with other handsets offered under the RadioShack umbrella, the Desire C runs on Cricket Wireless' network and features Muve Music; it comes with an 8GB microSD card. Service plans start at $50 per month for unlimited voice and data.

For a limited time, RadioShack is offering $10 off for every $50 spent through January 5. At $119.99, the Desire C would net buyers two $10 off coupons to use on qualifying purchases.
