I just upgrade to one. Couldn't decide between that or the BlackBerry Bold 9700 but went for the HTC as it has a lot of great reviews including this one beats the iPhone! Well i'm liking it so far! :up:
I'll be getting one either tomorrow if I can wangle carphone warehouse down by 10-20 quid or waiting til the 24th as I'm buying sim free.
Was waiting on a nexus one being released properly in the UK sim free (didn't want to import) but it's not happening so going for the next best option lol. Just got to rip off the sense ui as that is god damned ugly in my opinion.
And lastly - thank god someone else doesn't want an iPhone lol
Ha yeah i'm bored of the iPhone, I mean I can't knock it, the iPhone is fantastic but I have the iPod touch and my bf got an iPhone, so I definitely wanted something different! The desire is meant to be better than the nexus one...
I'd argue the other way on the nexus one, it's a 'google' phone so will be updated first, it has 2 mics, it hasn't got sense, there's a cyanogen mod (faster os etc) for it, it's got the car dock and desk dock.
It also has the standard google home screens, speech to text, voice search, google 3d gallery which have all been removed in htc's wisdom on the desire although luckily they can all be added after installing a decent file manager
Picked up my desire today, strongly considered the iPhone, however, the desire pipped it for me, with what I require from it and also its slightly more open sourced then say the iPhone. Other plus point was its a free upgrade and didn't need a cash upfront and larger monthly tariff with my provider that I would have had with the iPhone.
same here! I'm eligible for an iphone upgrade now (as Orange keeps reminding me) but I think I'm going to wait a couple of months. I reeeeeeally like the look of the htc desire, but I've been lusting over an iphone. Choices, choices!
mrDerek, I'm in no rush, could have bought it from expansys but as I'm in no rush intend to save some money lol. One benefit of waiting is theres a google/andoid show on wed/thursday of this week so there may be new phone options etc
