The new HTC Sense experience is also found on the HTC Desire, which features a 5 megapixel camera and a large 3.7 inch AMOLED WVGA display for maximum enjoyment of pictures, videos, and Web browsing on a mobile device. Powered by a 1 gigahertz Snapdragon processor, the HTC Desire includes Adobe Flash 10.1, and HTC put an optical joystick on this model as well.  Expect the HTC Desire to be available across major European and Asian markets in early Q2.
The new HTC Desire is the phone that’s got many an Android fan hot under the collar – packing top end hardware into a thin chassis.
Those that watched the Nexus One announcement unfold but wished that HTC had plugged its cool Sense overlay onto the phone will be pleased, as this is what the Desire is all about.
Essentially it’s the same phone as the Google Nexus One, with the slim 11.9 depth chassis and smooth exterior making it a real joy to hold in the hand
It’s a little on the large side thanks to packing a 3.7-inch OLED screen, but HTC has had a look at the few foibles the Nexus One has and sorted them out on the Desire.
The main difference lives on the front of the phone – the trackball has been replaced with an optical option instead, meaning a less tactile feel when trying to navigate through menus.
It’s not a real negative point though – it’s just that some people might have to take a while to get used to not actually scrolling anything physical.
The touch sensitive buttons on the front of the HTC Desire, which our review pointed out were a little bit fiddly, have been replaced by physical keys, which respond nicely to the touch and allow easier access through the phone.
The only other differences between the HTC Desire and the Google Nexus One are the former lacks the dock ports needed for the stand, and also dispenses with active noise cancellation, which HTC says brings the cost right down


The large hi-resolution display on the HTC Desire makes it perfect for watching movies. Support for popular movie formats and the brilliant 3.7″ display utilizing the the latest AMOLED (Active Matrix Organic LED) technology to produce sharp vibrant colours and deep blacks.
Not only watch movies, but make them also with the HTC Desire. HD (High Definition) video capture lets you capture special moments as they happen in brilliant high definition.
Design around you with a full suite of Google mobile services. Find your way or discover new and interesting places with Google Maps. Keep in touch with Google Mail and Google Talk, or just relax and watch video clips from YouTube.
Utilizing the latest Qualcomm SnapDragon processor and chipset the HTC Desire offers blistering performance. Watch HD movies with no slowdown, flick through hundreds of photographs or browse through the internet with no slowdown, thanks to the SnapDragon processor.
The whole Sense UI has been optimised for the HTC Desire, and this means that it excels in two key areas beyond the Legend: multimedia and internet.
The screen is 4x the resolution of the Legend, which means a high-res display and a terrific device to watch video and view photos on.
There’s an 8GB memory card in the box too in order to help you start stuffing content onto the device, and while it doesn’t have the same standby time as the Legend, it does have a larger battery to help cope.
And the internet experience on the HTC Desire is phenomenal (we might have to rethink the battery claim, as we’ll probably be on the internet all the time when using this device).
Somehow HTC appears to have optimised the browser in such a way that even over EDGE connectivity, heavy web pages load in seconds. The text reflow (which admittedly is the Legend as well) is a dream, allowing users to zoom into text as and when they like at the size they want.
In short, if you’ve got deep pockets or carry a bag with space for a phone with a 3.7-inch screen, there’s very little reason not to pick up the HTC Desire

  1. I was told by a HTC showroom staff at KLCC (3rd Floor) that HTC Desire will not be coming to Malaysia at all. He said since we are offered HTC Legend so no official Desire from HTC Malaysia just like Nexus One. Can anyone confirm that? Chances are the guy was bluffing as he wanted me to buy Legend from him.
