The HTC Desire (codenamed Bravo), is a smartphone developed by the HTC Corporation, that was announced on 16 February 2010 and released in Europe and Australia in the second quarter of the same year. It is powered by a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor and runs the Android operating system, version 2.1. It includes an active-matrix OLED (AMOLED) screen and a 5-megapixel camera. Internally it bears a strong resemblance to the Nexus One, but differs in some features. It was announced the Desire would get the Android 2.2 (Froyo) update in the first weeks of July 2010.
The HTC Desire has received extremely positive reviews. CNET UK reviewed the phone on March 29 and awarded the phone 9.2/10. TechRadar awarded the phone 5 out of 5 stars and stated "In short, this is a phenomenal phone one of the best we've ever had on TechRadar . If you're looking for comparisons between this and the Nexus One, the first is highly obvious: the trackball is gone. HTC has given the phone the Terminator eye once more which is basically an optical trackpad that registers finger motion over the sensor.
The phone is very slim indeed, with dimensions of 119 x 60 x 11.9 mm, and weighs in at just 133g. If you're counting, that's 2g heavier than the iPhone 3G and the exact same weight as the iPhone 3G- and that makes it very pocket friendly indeed. The design is sleek, and the Desire certainly looks the business - sleek and compact, while still showing off the power of the OLED screen.
