In pictures: HTC's new handset range

HTC Legend, Desire and HD Mini showcased

HTC Desire


There's good reason why HTC is spitting superlatives at the moment. The aptly named HTC Desire boasts a massive 3.7-inch OLED screen and an ultra-powerful 1GHz Snapdragon chip from Qualcomm.


HTC's sense UI has also had an update, adding a more detailed calendar widget and tabbed emails which means better navigation. The weather widget still leaves a lot to be desired, however.


Facebook and Twitter integration will be welcomed by some who can't be bothered to check two social-networking feeds. There's also Exchange support, webmail and threaded text messaging.


The HTC Desire is a bit of a speed demon. Even when we tried the device over an EDGE connection, it was much faster than most phones in its field. Even websites with a stupid amount going on loaded up with ease.
