Desire smartphone line. The latest comes by way of a recent leak and is showing details on two yet to be announced handsets -- the Desire P and the Desire Q. The Desire P carries the model number of T326h and the Desire Q carries the model number of T328h.
recently announced HTC Desire X. It's more compact than the larger HTC One X and One S, while having a bump in size and specs over the budget-aimed One V. HTC is aiming for the middle of the road mass market with this device so lets take a peek.
recently leaked HTC Desire X budget smartphone for the European and international markets. Have a look below.
HTC One series in styling and featureset, but are technically members of the Desire family. The HTC Desire VT T328t, VC T328d, and V T328w (catchy, huh?) all have similar specs and features, but will be launched seperately on China's three largest cellular providers. Refreshingly, all three will run Android Ice Cream Sandwich and HTC Sense 4.0 at launch.
LG THRILL 4G was officially reviewed by Chris Burns. We were also informed that the device would indeed be delayed until the end of August.
has released the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the HTC Desire, though because of limitations of the ROM thanks to HTC's efforts to squeeze it down to suit the storage space the smartphone has, it's being released via the company's developer site rather than as an OTA upgrade. Various HTC apps have been removed - though will be available to download separately - and the official Facebook app has been stripped out and must be re-installed via the Android Market. In addition, all customizations to the ROM - including anything carriers may have installed or mandated - have been removed, and in fact even the wallpapers (bar the default) have been taken out to save space. HTC warns that some people may lose SMS/MMS functionality after upgrading too, though it sounds like that's because this is a generic ROM and may not have the carrier settings required; those should be readily added back in afterwards. Still, unlike the streamlined OTA process, installing Gingerbread on the Desire will wipe out all of your existing customizations, messages, emails, apps and other content, so HTC is recommending it for "expert users" and development purposes only. You're also out of luck if you have a Desire from Germany (Deutsch Telekom), North America, South America, South Korea, and Japan, where "concerns raised from our partners" have led to HTC not allowing the update in those regions. If you're feeling brave, you can download the HTC Desire Android Gingerbread 2.3 ROM from http://developer.htc.com/ [Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]
would not get the update, saying they couldn't fit their Sense UI and Gingerbread both on the internal storage of the device. They later changed that tune after a huge outcry from the public. Newest reports on Facebook indicate all you Desire users will see Gingerbread roll out this month.
