HTC Desire review: A desire come true

The Google Nexus One was given the grace of a market head start but its no longer standing lonely at the top. And even if it looks like a brotherly reunion, the HTC Desire is in fact a formidable rival. Thats between HTC and Google though. Users have hardly reasons to complain.



As to the differences, the HTC Desire seems to get the upper hand but its not just quite as capable as promised.read more →

  • Android OS v2.1 with kinetic scrolling and pinch zooming
