HTC's highest-specification mobile phone is now available as Pay As You Go, HTC Desire is an Android powered device with a huge 3.7-inch AMOLED touch screen that is very similar to the Google Nexus One manufactured by HTC Google.
The manufacturer has some nice extras in its Desire model, which is not included in the previous Nexus One and is the most noticeable HTC Sense user interface. This is found on most of the older models, and users find it to be a smooth experience when navigating the menus and using their favorite widgets to personalize home screens.
As an Android phone, HTC Desire offers access to the ever-growing Android Market, users can download new information, entertainments, and business applications to download their phone.
In addition to the large touch screen, HTC opted for a new optical track, compared to the Nexus One physical trackball. The same feature can be found in the recently launched HTC Legend and deny wear, as it allows you to finger your finger over the top of the track and click on the outer ring to select features.
On the back of the handset, a 5.0-megapixel camera capable of recording HD in HD, the same technology is available in very few phones and the latest in the latest Sony Ericsson Vivaz. Other features include WiFi, HSDPA, 3.5G support for fast download speeds and a very important addition that Nexus One does not include; Flash 10.1 support.
HTC Desire is competing for a couple of Android mobile devices currently on the market, not least from Nexus One, but also from the newly introduced Sony Ericsson Xperia X10. It offers an even larger touch screen 4 inches along a huge 8-megapixel camera.
This latest Pay As You Go launch on the Desire handset means that the phone is now available for greater market share, and many people are struggling to pass on the credit checks provided by the networks to deal with the deal. The prepaid system does not require the consumer to pass these checks, and the system is also ideal for those who do not want to conclude a long-term contract.
HTC Desire is now available on Orange, T-Mobile and Vodafone networks, and further networking is expected soon, and O2 has confirmed that it will set up the new HTC device for their full tariff.
