HTC Desire review
HTC Desire quick review : Also named the Google Nexus One look-a-like, the new HTC Desire Smartphone was presented during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. HTC Mobile is a Taiwanese cell phone manufacturer that has been making a lot of noise with the introduction of interesting new Smartphones in the last few years, and HTC is always good for its remarkable technical specifications such as the case of the HTC Desire. The new, slim-line designed HTC Desire is equipped with a fast 1Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and a large, 3.7-inch format display. The display is not only remarkable in terms of format; the screen is a multi-touch AMOLED-type screen, so that the color saturation and contrast are immediately noticeable.|

The HTC Desire mobile phone uses AMOLED and this is certainly a specification that will be valued by the end-user. The display is quite a bit higher in terms of quality than that of the previous ‘standard’ displays. In terms of operating system, the HTC Desire runs on Google Android OS version 2.1 and is therefore an up-to-date smartphone. Of course the Desire smartphone also uses the HTC Sense technology.
