VIDEO: HTC Desires official first look

Video number two of the day from HTC official library. This video features the hot hot HTC Desire. This is essentially a Nexus One with Sense UI slapped on. This phone is rumored to be offered by multiple carriers around the world so hopefully no matter who your carrier is you can get your hands on one. As mentioned before this phone is very similar to the Nexus One except it features an optical trackball and well as HTC's custom interface, Sense UI. In this video you get a look at the slight chin which is paying homage to the original Android device(HTC Dream/G1) and it is also dubbed a "superphone". Sense UI looks great on the large AMOLED screen. The only thing I wonder about is the support for accessories. If this phone will have its on desk and car dock, my Nexus may be up for sale.

HTC Dev Phone gets Android 1.6 firmware

Android OS 1.6 for developers has been released, though frustratingly you'll need an Android Developer Phone - aka one of HTC's patterned, unlocked Dreams - in order to install it.  The release gives developers an opportunity to get to grips with the latest build of Android, prior to OS 1.6 being pushed to consumer devices. Android 1.6 brings with it support for alternative screen sizes, CDMA support and a new text-to-speech engine.  There's also a new scaling algorithm, which means that developers may not have to rework their core software in order to suit different sized displays. Even if you have a standard, unlocked Dream it will need to have the original factory bootloader (hboot 0.95.3000) or a development bootloader that supports fastboot in order to install the new build.  We're expecting to see hacks putting 1.6 onto regular devices soon, but for most users you're probably better off waiting until an official OS release.
