HTC Desire launch in UK on March 26 [Video]

February 17th, 2010

Smartphone specialists HTC have unveiled three new phones at the Mobile World Congress – Super-fast HTC Desire, The HTC Legend and The HD Mini.

The HTC Desire – The Desire will have one thing the Google’s Nexus One lacked – HTC’s Sense interface, the Taiwanese manufacturer’s intuitive and widely-praised skin for Android. Desire boasts 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, a 3.7 inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, and a 5 megapixel camera with an LED flash.The Desire will support Flash 10.1. Sense allows users to pull information from web services like Twitter and Facebook and display them in widgets on a variety of customisable home pages. Desire will have a miniature optical track pad to give users greater control of where they’re pointing. The Desire will be available in Britain from March 26th on T-Mobile, with Orange saying they will offer it in April and other networks also expected to join them.

The HTC Legend – Similar in design to the much-loved Hero, it has a stylish joinless aluminium case, much like Apple’s MacBook laptops. Gizmodo described it as ‘the best-looking Android phone period’. It also has a 3.2 inch AMOLED screen, runs off a 600 MHz Qualcomm processor and like the Desire, features a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash, runs Android 2.1, and has an optical trackpad. The HTC Legend will have a UK launch date in April with Vodafone.

HTC HD Mini – A pint-sized Windows phone that runs off Windows Mobile 6.5, rather than the new Windows Phone 7 Series that Microsoft unveiled.

The Nexus One does not yet have a confirmed UK release date, although Vodafone are expected to bring it to market soon – meaning Android fans keen to get their hands on a Nexus One may well skip it and go straight to the HTC Desire.
