Simply Stunning

The HTC Desire delivers intense brilliance, sharp contrast, and true colours on the expansive 3.7-inch AMOLED display. The 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor makes the phone incredibly responsive as you multitask from app to app without skipping a beat, while the instinctive Sense experience lets you wield the power with the greatest of ease

Make It Mine

It's all about your information, your entertainment, your multimedia your way. A multitude of Sense widgets makes it easy to transform your Home screen with rich content that personalises your phone experience.

If you're a sports junkie or simply love to keep up to date with the latest news, it keeps you in the know with the News application. News makes it easier than ever to collect all your favorite articles from across the web. Choose from a selection of channels that cover top blogs, news sites or sports pages, or get news updates based on the keywords you select.

Stay Close

It excels at helping you stay in touch with the different circles of friends or colleagues in your life. The new People widget lets you bring any group you create on your phone right to the surface for easy access to calling, messaging, emailing or simply checking up on social networking updates.

The HTC Desire simplifies the way that you tend to all of your social networks. With Friend Stream, your interaction with friends across multiple social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr are brought into a single easy to follow stream of updates, photo posts, and shared links. Friend Stream also lets you shout out your thoughts or feelings to all your online friends with a single comment that gets broadcast to both Facebook and Twitter.

Discover The Unexpected

This HTC offers an expansive display, a blazing-fast processor, and a great interface. On top of that, it has a lot of little design touches that make a big impact on your overall phone experience: like quick and easy access to any panel of your Home screen with the new seven-panel 'helicopter' thumbnail view, or the polite ringer that lowers the ringer volume when you pick up the phone.

Your work email, calendar appointments, and contacts, are right there on your phone - you can even look up any company contact in the global address book. The Desire also has enhanced support for Exchange security features such as password protection and remote data wipe. And, if you forget to tell your colleagues that you are taking the much needed day off, you can set the 'Out of Office' status right from your phone.

Designed to thrive on the web. The screen size is perfect for mobile browsing, with the high resolution AMOLED display making everything you view ultra crisp. The pinch to zoom feature makes zipping around websites intuitive - the text even automatically reflows when you take a closer look so you don't have to pan left or right, and the Adobe Flash support opens up the vast video and gaming resources of the Internet.

The browser is designed to do more than simply browse. With just a press and hold you can select text on a page and look it up in Wikipedia or have it converted into your native tongue via Google
