    HTC DESIRE with 2.1 and Flash 10.1 with Amoled and Snapdragon

    Def diggin this phone.





    HTC Desire: your Nexus One with Sense and Flash has arrived (video)

    The one thing you'll never see on a stock Nexus One is a skinned interface like Sense or TouchWiz -- they're just not Google enough for a phone commissioned and sold directly by Mountain View. Thing is, Sense on Android has plenty of fans, and the mere thought of running it on something with as much oomph as a 1GHz Snapdragon brings tears to our eyes. The solution? The Desire, of course, featuring virtually all of the original Nexus One's mojo with a little less direct Google support, a little more Sense, and a trackpad in place of the old trackball. The 3.7-inch AMOLED display carries over, but things get interesting on the software side: not only do you get HTC's freshly-updated Sense with Friend Stream, you also get Flash 10.1 compatibility, which means you need every clock cycle of that 1GHz more than you ever thought you would. Unfortunately, North Americans, you're getting screwed on this one for the time being -- HTC is only announcing that it'll be "broadly available" throughout Europe and Asia in the early part of the second quarter, while it'll come to Australia via Telstra. Supersonic, care to save us?

    Update: Promo video is now after the break (thanks, O'Neill!), and our hands-on with the device at MWC can be found here.

    HTC Desire first hands-on (updated with video)

    Hands-On





    Well, we just got a little up close and personal with HTC's "superphone," the Desire. What you're looking at is basically the Nexus One, sans trackball (though plus an optical touch area). Certainly the specs are the same, though you've got the new Sense UI on board for good measure. At a glance the phone actually doesn't seem as snappy as we were expecting, and there are obviously a few kinks to work out with some of the new Sense concepts (Leap for instance -- the pinch-to-card view -- was giving our demo person some trouble). Still, the Desire is definitely high on our gadget lust list right now. We're obviously reserving final judgment for a later date, but until we get some more time with this guy, feast your eyes on the gallery below.

    Update: Added a quick video after the break showing the Sense UI... not behaving.

    Update 2: We've been told by an HTC rep that the Sense build on the Desire unit we played with is actually quite early, so it's probably not indicative of the actual performance of the pinch-to-card view. We played with a Legend that had a later, nearly final build of the UI and it was definitely snappier and more responsive.

    Anyone can correct me if I am wrong, but I think the Droid is running 600mhz while the Snapdragon starts you off at 1ghz.

    Spaziba, JhankG.
    On that note, i am glad to at least see the Flash on a phone now with 2.1.
    Thas good to see and I hope that the Droid will receive the same treatment soon.

    Too bad it's going to Tmobile, that abomination of a cell phone provider (imo).

    If you're on TMobile in the UK you can get the phone March 26th.
