HTC Desire Android Phone Specs, Price and Features are Better Than Google Nexus One Version

My next tip is for you to consider purchasing the HTC Desire (formerly known as HTC Bravo) if you want a cheap android phone. HTC Desire is being sold unlocked for $550 by some online retailers. Some Ebay sellers are even selling it for $450 only. I am totally infatuated with the HTC Desire android handset. The name itself is already awesome. It is truly a very desirable gadget to have. Come to think of it, the HTC Desire is the more beautiful twin of the Google Nexus One which HTC also made for Google. Although they look the same, the HTC Desire is superior considering its specs and features. The HTC Desire price is even lower than most new android phones coming out this 2010.

The HTC Desire is the Twin of the Google Nexus One but Offers More Bang for Your Money

Just like its twin, the Desire also boasts a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and 576 MB of built-in RAM. They also share the same 3.7-inch AMOLED multi-touch display but the Desire seems to be more brilliant and crisp to the eyes. Although the Nexus One has received Android OS 2.2 Froyo update, the HTC Desire’s 2.1 OS can also be upgraded by rooting your phone and using custom ROMs. If you are allergic to doing technical things then the Desire’s default OS will do just fine.

The outstanding advantage of the HTC Desire over the Nexus One is in user experience. HTC has again used their custom Sense UI on this model. The TouchFLO 3D-based user interface is clearly more user-friendly than the Nexus One’s Android UI. One more thing, the trackball in Google’s phone was replaced by an optical trackpad in the Desire which people are finding easier and more fluid to navigate their phone with.

Too bad only European carriers supported this model. It was rumored before that either T-Mobile or AT&T will bring the HTC desire to the U.S. shores but the deal didn’t push through. The only way to get this remarkable phone will be through online shops and auction sites.
