Bravo has been made official, and the HTC Desire is enough to put any Nexus One envy out of your mind. The Desire has the same 3.7-inch AMOLED multitouch display as the Nexus One, but throws in HTC's coveted Sense user interface complete with Exposé-style "helicopter view" for homescreen thumbnails. There's also European UMTS/HSPA 900/2100, an optical joystick, 5-megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash, WiFi, Bluetooth and a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU. In fact the only real feature that the Desire lacks and the Nexus One has, is active noise cancellation; that's apparently a cost-saving measure, to keep the Desire relatively affordable. Unfortunately HTC have told us in a pre-brief that there are currently no plans to make a US-version, so Nexus One owners will have to wait for the inevitable hacked ROM. More details over at SlashGear, and we’ll have hands-on video and photos with the new smartphones after the press conference ends.
another leaked image of the HTC Bravo, and happily that's just what's arrived from Poland. It's not entirely clear how it happened, but HTC apparently showed off a Bravo and a Legend there. As we knew before, the Bravo has a 3.7-inch WVGA AMOLED touchscreen, Snapdragon 1GHz processor, 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording, and HTC's Sense interface. In fact it's basically the HTC-branded version of the Nexus One, though you do get an optical trackpad rather than a trackball. Unfortunately, they didn't let the tipster grab a photo of the Legend, though he did describe it. Apparently it's smaller than the Hero (which it's tipped to replace), has a full aluminum body and an AMOLED display (believed to be running at 800 x 480, though that's not confirmed), together with a 5-megapixel camera with flash. It's expected to launch in March 2010. [via Android.com.pl]
HTC Bravo that we've seen has emerged, showing the upcoming 1GHz Snapdragon Android smartphone running the HTC Sense UI. Discovered over at Omio, the word over there is that the Bravo will hit T-Mobile. That's interesting, because the Bravo - which may not be the final production name - has largely the same specifications as the Google Nexus One, also available on T-Mobile in the USA: a 3.7-inch capacitive touchscreen, HSDPA/HSUPA, WiFi and a 5-megapixel autofocus camera. The biggest difference looks set to be the GUI - Sense on the Bravo versus pure Android on the Nexus One - and the newer handset's optical trackpad that replaces the older phone's trackball.
