  1. HTC Desire is a nice mobile model. I am using this mobile and i recently unlocked the mobile using the unlock code purchased.

  2. This is a very impressive phone! I’m really considering pre-ordering is, especially after the 5 star review @ Techradar.

  3. I’ve got my HTC Desire recently, I used to using the Nokia X5800. Moving from Symbian to the Android platform is day and night difference. That shows how far behind Nokia is in this game!

    I’m very happy getting the Desire machine but the battery power is something a pain, since I’m using the machine all the time for E-Mail and surfing the Net. Single Battery can’t last more then 6 hrs. I believe this is something that HTC need to improve on the battery consumption!

    I just can’t wait to get upgraded to the new 2.2 FroYo hopefully in the next few weeks!

  4. A very nice mobile phone from HTC. every mobile users is like this mobile buy this is not a chep mobile the mango people can’t afford price.
