by: Derek ScottMarch 14, 2011

[Update Dec 1st: We’ve got a more up to date version of the Best Android Phones in Canada here!]

To show some love for our friends north of the border, we decided to compile a list of the best upcoming  and available Android phones that Canadian carriers offer.

There’s some good news for Canadians though, in [...]

by: Darcy LaCouveeFebruary 28, 2011

A new post from the well informed guys at The Next Web argues that a new report from uSwitch is demonstrating that interest in the iPhone is finally waning. HTC Android Smartphones, in particular, appear to be extremely popular with consumers these days. With more and more consumers looking for “better bang for buck” deals, HTC has effectively marketed different Android phones, at varying price points, in a bid to win the hearts and minds of customers worldwide.

 

uSwitch ranked the UK’s most favorite mobile handsets, and discovered that the HTC Desire, Desire HD, and HTC Wildfire currently occupy the top three spots. Of the top ten selling smartphones [...]

by: Derek ScottJuly 15, 2010

HTC Desire

Telus has announced it will soon be offering HTC’s Desire Android smartphone – but with one big change.  It will have a Sony LCD, not a Samsung AMOLED display. This is due to the shortage of AMOLED displays that have caused delays for other devices like HTC’s DROID Incredible.

The HTC Desire runs Android 2.1, and has a 3.7-inch 800 x 480 pixel touchscreen display, as well as a 5 megapixel camera. Telus did not say when it would offer the phone or for how much it would sell the Desire.
