HTC Desire: Black Edition Headed to Orange UK

A few weeks back we uncovered the existence of the highly anticipated HTC Desire in an all black color scheme. Before then this phone was only seen in gray and even white. Now it has been confirmed via twitter, by Conor Maples who happens to be the PR man at Orange, that it will be available in April.

HTC Desire gets reviewed at SlashGear

The second part of HTC's Android attack, the HTC Desire, certainly has the heritage and hype, but is it actually a decent phone?  That's just the question we've been grappling with over at SlashGear, where our full HTC Desire review has just gone live.  We've made plenty of comparison against the Desire's effective sibling, the Google Nexus One, too.

SlashGear Reviews The X10

Another Android best has been handled by our friends from Slashgear. Earlier today they brought us one of the first unboxing of the highly anticipated HTC Desire. This time around, they are one of the first to review of the equally anticipated Sony Xperia X10. We’ve known, and wanted, this phone since around last October. Since then there has been multiple powerful Android handsets announced for release this year. So is it too little to for Sony or will this be their knight in shining armor.

HTC Desire arrives & gets video unboxing

It feels like we've been waiting ages since Mobile World Congress and the launch of the HTC Desire, but the Android 2.1 smartphone is finally in our hands. Packing the same 1GHz Snapdragon processor as the Google Nexus One, but bearing the latest version of HTC's alluring Sense UI, the Desire has a 3.7-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, Flash Lite support and a 5-megapixel camera. The Desire is set to go on sale through UK carriers T-Mobile and Vodafone over the next few days - in fact T-Mobile are already shipping handsets out this weekend, with deliveries expected to begin on Monday - and with the Nexus One still not officially available in Europe there's a lot resting on this new device.  First impressions are certainly positive; the display is just as bright and eye-catching as we know from the Nexus One, and Sense whips along on the 1GHz CPU. We'll be putting the HTC Desire through its paces over the weekend and expect to have the full review up next week.  More photos plus first-impressions and a demo video (including Flash in the browser) over at SlashGear!

HTC Desire Confirmed for March 29th Delivery in the UK

This little tidbit of information was brought to our attention not too long ago. A user in the T-Mobile's discussion forum has received a confirmation email from T-Mobile that said his phone was in their stock and will be delivered on March 29th. Some of you lucky enough to have ordered this, only have four days until it’s in your sweaty palms. Looks like it’s time to start stalking the delivery guy again. Let the countdown begin. This was undoubtedly the hottest Android phone around the web until the recent announcement by Sprint introducing the HTC EVO 4G. Nonetheless, this is still the most “Desired” phone among fans of Android. And if you choose the right plan, it can be yours for free. These next few months we are going to see a few powerful Android devices enter into the market from various manufacturers’. I can’t wait to see what’s next; I’m still waiting on a good physical keyboard “Superphone” to be caught in some spy pictures. [via t-mobile]

Nexus One “doing pretty well” says HTC CEO

HTC CEO Peter Chou has spoken out in defence of the Google Nexus One, dismissing the recent speculation regarding poor sales figures for the smartphone.  Speaking at CTIA Wireless this week, Chou described the Nexus One as a halo device for HTC and suggested that Google's intent with the smartphone was more to show what Android is capable of rather than to dominate the market in terms of sheer sales. Analysts Flurry caught headlines earlier this month by suggesting Nexus One sales severely lagged behind both the first-gen iPhone and the Motorola DROID in their first weeks of availability.  In defence, while Chou wouldn't reveal specific sales figures, he did say that "considering Google didn't do [standard] retail or marketing for it, the Nexus One is doing pretty well." "We can quickly leverage that [Nexus One] credit to show that we are the top Android brand" Chou explained.  The company have used pretty much the same hardware as is found in the Google-branded device for their own HTC Desire, set to go on sale in Europe imminently.

A Black HTC Desire?

So far we have seen this device in two flavors, the gray one that we all know and love and in white. Now a black Desire has been spotted. Not only has it been spotted but it’s on sale for preorder right now at Amazon.

Silver HTC Desire caught in the Netherlands [Video]

While the HTC Desire's display may be a rich, color-saturated AMOLED, the smartphone's casing is pretty mundane; HTC don't seem to have strayed far from the Nexus One with their color palette.  Happily it seems murky-grey isn't the only color HTC plan to offer, with a brighter silver Desire already being caught in the wild in the Netherlands. The images of the two devices were spotted by xda-developers forum member irkan and come from the Flickr gallery of Robert Webbe.  No telling where he actually encountered the device - it seems to have been recorded at some sort of press event, judging by the video below - but it's available for pre-order exclusively from PDAshop.nl. They're asking €449 ($620) for the silver HTC Desire, and reckon shipments will begin on April 9th.  Anyone tempted by this over and above the more common brown version of the phone?
