HTC Desire, is it desirable?

Earlier today, U.S. Cellular announced its newest phone to be released on the market, the HTC Desire. After a $70 mail-in-rebate and a two year contract, the phone will be sold for $199.95.

The phone has a 3.7 inch touchscreen with 480 x 800 pixel resolution and runs on Android 2.1 with a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The phone will have GPS and Wi-Fi capability and will also have the ability to download additional apps from the Android market like other Android devices.

As for the “build” of the phone, it is pretty similar to the Google Nexus One phone. There are small differences such as the track ball being replaced with a optical d-pad. There is a slight “chin” at the bottom of the phone and the entire back of the phone has a soft paint on it making the phone less prone to smudges and scratches. It also gives the user a better grip on the phone. The Desire is also very sensitive to touch which many people will enjoy. The phone also supports multi-touch on the browser, email reader, photo viewer, and Google maps.

I believe that this phone will be a good competition in the smartphone market. Although we have pretty much seen this before when the Nexus One came out, I think many people will still find it to be better than other Android devices out there.

So. Is the HTC Desire desirable to you?
