HTC Desire with Sense UI and Android 2.1

February 17, 2010

    The HTC Desire, codenamed Bravo, has been let loose officially. The HTC Desire is a effectively a Google Nexus One. However, the Desire has HTC’s famous Sense UI paved over the most recently available build of Android, called Eclair. It’s a very attractive piece of kit that has even grown a ever-so-small chin reminiscent of the HTC Magic. It’s almost unnoticeable, though.

    Instead of the Nexus One’s trackball, there is a an optical trackpad. This part of the phone has clearly undergone some serious thought. The actual trackpad – which is effectively just a small black dot, is surrounded by a physical button.
