Meet the HTC Desire. This is another Android device, again with 2.1 (Eclair) and the excellent HTC Sense interface. It’s got a large 3.7″ 480×800 WVGA AMOLED screen and .. wait, isn’t that the Bravo we spotted before? Indeed it is. The name has changed but the specs remain the same. This is the phone that was pretty much separated at birth from the Nexus One.
It has (are you ready for this?) a 1Ghz CPU, 1400 mAh battery, microSD storage, 512MB ROM, 576MB RAM and quad-band GSM / dual-band HSPA / WCDMA. That not enough for you ? Try a 5 megapixel auto-focus camera with face detection, flash and geo-tagging, internet tethering through the USB, WiFi, 3.5mm audio jack, Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR, G-Sensor, digital compass, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, and FM radio. It also has those special features that the Legend has – it’ll automatically backup your texts, MMS, bookmarks and WiFi plus it’ll lower the ringer volume as soon as you pick the phone up etc.
HTC have added the Sense interface along with HTC Peep for Twitter connectivity, HTC Footprints, Facebook integration plus photo sharing on Flickr, Twitter and video sharing on YouTube.
Imagine the HD2 with Android and you’re nearly there with this one :)
We’ve just come out of a meeting with Yves Maitre, Senior Vice President, Mobile Multimedia and Devices at Orange, and he’s confirmed that this will be coming to Orange. More as we get it..
