Description

The HTC Desire is a touchscreen mobile phone released by T-Mobile in March 2010 and described as a clone to Google’s notorious Nexus One. It maintains its competitor’s ultra-slim design, Qualcomm 1-GHz Snapdragon processor, and Google Android 2.1 operating system. However, the Desire hosts HTC’s improved Sense user interface with Friend Stream, which aggregates all a user’s social-networking data into one place. Plus, the Desire traded in the Nexus’s trackball in favor of an optical joystick that critics haul as “a much more efficient way of navigating.” Included also is Flash 10.1 compatibility for watching flash videos, a 3.7” touchscreen display with multi-touch capabilities, 3G connectivity, wireless networking, and built-in GPS with free turn-by-turn directions.
