The HTC Desire is still one of the most wanted Android devices available. Many of thought this device will not see the light of day here in the US. Luckily we were all wrong. US Cellar will be releasing the HTC Desire this July.
How is this possible? Looks like they’ve learned nothing from the recent Desire debacle where the phone keeps getting delayed due to them not having enough in stock. The Nexus One for Vodafone UK just got a release date of April 30th and it seems those devices are already gone.
Vodafone have come clean with their latest Android handset, the super-small Vodafone 845 first spotted in the wild a couple of weeks back. Measuring a scant 100 x 55 x 13 mm, the 845 has a 2.8-inch touchscreen, Android 2.1 Eclair and a 3.2-megapixel camera.
A new version of the Mozilla Firefox browser for Android has been released, under the company's "Fennec" codename. As well as browsing, Mozilla have also whipped up a version of Weave to synchronize bookmarks, history, passwords and tabs between the desktop and mobile versions.
Garmin-Asus' latest Android smartphone has been outed, the 3.2-inch HVGA nuvifone A10.

Some of you may have heard of this name before. HTC had a vote recently which allowed users to pick the name of their next device. Wildfire was the winner with the most votes. Today the FCC had some hands on time with a new Android device that has a full QWERTY slide out keyboard.
This was a short but very interesting interview with Andy Rubin, vice president for engineering at Google, shots was dished out and a few things were kind of confirmed. Android is a well known open mobile OS and the most versatile OS of any kind. This openness is the key to Androids success, many manufacturers have adopted the platform and it is really taking off.
The LG Optimus formerly know around the web as the LG GT540, will be headed to the UK this May. LG is a late entry into the Android game but they are making a valiant effort to pump out quality Android devices. To bad there isn't a price tag on this one but expect it to be affordable.
Hope you haven’t forgot about Samsung, they continue to release very good Android devices all around the world (we just hope some of them make their way here). Samsung has released the Galaxy A for South Korea. This device has similar specs to the original Galaxy but has a few new ones as well.
