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.
The HTC Desire is an Android-based smartphone that offers a 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen display, a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash, Wi-Fi, GPS, and runs a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The Desire landed overseas first and U.S. Cellular (a CDMA carrier) announced that it would carry the smartphone this summer, but it has not been announced for any other U.S. carriers to date. However, FCC documents suggest that a version of the device with support for AT&T’s 3G network could be on the way.

But you never heard this from me…. A new update is coming the 23rd of Juneand you will be able to put some apps on to the micro sd card.
There is not much more to add to the mix other than a healthy dose of scepticism. However, something tells ma that this could be one to watch. After all, HTC are looking to bring all their Android based devices [...]
