HTC Desire steals a bit of the spotlight from the Nexus One(Read article summary)
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.
