Overview of HTC Desire - Graphite

THIS HANDSET HAS NOW BEEN DISCONTINUED. THE LATEST HANDSET IN THE DESIRE RANGE IS THE HTC DESIRE C.

THE HTC DESIRE WHILST SHIPPING WTH ANDROID 2.1 CAN BE UPDATED TO ANDROID 2.2 FOR FREE VIA AN OVER THE AIR UPDATE

You desire to own the best, and you can with the HTC Desire.

The equivalent to the Google Nexus One, but incorporating additional Ram and a optical trackball, the HTC Desire has everything to make this device the best in the market and a smartphone you will find indispensable.

Powered by Google Android 2.1 with HTC Sense, the HTC Desire has an operating system and user interface that knocks other smartphones by the wayside, enabling you to function like never before. Whether for business use or pleasure the Desire has the facilities to respond and work in every situation. The rich feature set keeps you connected and in touch with the world.

Direct from the home screen, check your email, calendar, tasks or the latest RSS feeds from your favourite website.

Personalise your device to work for you. With over 15,000 applications in the Google Marketplace there are bound to be applications that enhance your user experience, willing you to take the HTC Desire wherever you go.

A 1GHz processor will make light work of running applications, ensuring a very fast, trouble free and responsive interaction with the device.

A 3.7 inch SLCD display means that all content appears on screen in richer deeper colours without sacrifice to battery life or the device's size. Drawing up to 10 times less power than a VGA display, meaning you can work for longer with the 1400mAh battery without the need tocharge the device.

3G/HSDPA support is standard on the HTC Desire, as is Bluetooth, WiFi, a MicroSDHC memory card slot, a 5 megapixel camera with flash and an internal GPS antenna.

Gone is the roller trackball to be replaced with a clickable optical trackball for increased accuracy and reliability.

A proximity, ambient light and G-Sensor are also included to enhance the user experience you enjoy with the Desire, and ensure energy is conserved where possible to ensure you don't run out of power.

The HTC Desire is very responsive, and with the Friend Stream application pre-installed , this HTC exclusive feature allows you to be the fastest to respond to the latest Facebook, Twitter and other social network feeds all from one screen. Just input your social network logins once and Friend Stream will pull all the latest stat updates direct to your phone, and you can reply and update your status here to each of the different social networking sites.

So how much better can it get?

Well the HTC Desire also allows you to sync with iTunes and can record video in HD resolution (720p via an over the air update after launch) through the 5 megapixel camera.

All of this in a device that weighs just 135g (including the battery) and is no more that 11.9 mm thick?! No wonder it is named the Desire, who wouldn't desire to own one?

The unit colour is Graphite - The colour is that shown in the images, it has grey/gunmetal/brown hue to it.

Alan 29th July 2010

"I thought this was agreat phone - until it started dropping 3G connections. The I googled and found there is a worldwide problem of lost 3G connections that has been around for over 12 months. I am sending my phone back under warranty and may get another once the problem is sorted...unless something better and more reliable comes along beforehand. Come on Google/HTC sort this out or lose market share see: http://code.Google/9/Android/issues/detail?id=2207 "

Richie 8th May 2010

"Excellent phone and features, perfect for those who don't want to succumb to the big apple. Be aware though that it is picky with bluetooth. An Android OS bug prevents you from dialling numbers from your BT headset/carkit, regardless of what dialler app you use. Google have accepted this as a problem report."

Mark Anthony 28th April 2010

"This phone is simply amazing. The battery time could be better but I sort of understand that such a powerful smartphone drains the battery. I'd also like to say something about Clove.co.uk. The prices are the lowest I could find on the net and delivery/communication/quality of products are excellent. I'll definitely keep an eye on your store for other interesting products."

Thanks Clove for delivering it fast and to your excellent customer service who were always there to answer my queries!"
