As expected, HTC has unleashed a slew of Android smartphones here at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, and I have to admit they’re looking really good.
While not exactly groundbreaking, HTC Desire is the top notch phone that competes primarily with Google’s Nexus One (also made by HTC), as it has similar looks and pretty much the same specifications.
Here’s a quick overview: it’s an Android 2.1 phone with a 1 GHz Snapdragon CPU, 512MB or ROM and 576 MB of RAM memory, a 5 megapixel camera (with flash and autofocus), GPS, and the usual connectivity options: WiFi, Bluetooth, 3G. It also has a beautiful AMOLED 3.7 inch screen (multitouch is supported) with 480×800 pixel resolution.
What makes it different from the Nexus One is the lack of trackball, and HTC’s Sense UI, so the choice between the two will be strictly matter of personal preference. I will update this post with some hands-on experiences as soon as I lay my hands on it.
