The HTC Desire is already scooping up the buzz. But is it better than Google's Nexus One?
In January, Google rolled out the Nexus One, a smartphone powered by Android and built by the Taiwan-based HTC. Although sales haven't yet hit iPhone volume, the Nexus One was generally admired by critics for its power and speed. Now, about a month after the Nexus One hit shelves, HTC has taken the wraps off the Desire, essentially a Nexus One with the HTC Sense interface and a track-pad subbed in for the roll-ball.
The HTC Desire was one of three phones unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The HTC Legend, which is essentially an upgrade of the HTC Hero, has received a good deal of attention, as has the high-powered HTC HD Mini. But most of the buzz at the Mobile World Congress centers around the HTC Desire, and especially the phone's Sense capabilities.
