Fresh after the showing of the new HTC Legend, HTC has also given us an official announcement on the Desire – a handset which has been touted as the ‘Google Nexus Two’.
As reported from Pocket-Lint, the Desire (previously known as the HTC Bravo) comes equipped with Android 2.1 and packs almost identical specs and features seen in the Nexus One.
The only differences are that the Desire will not feature active noise cancellation or voice-to-text entry capabilities. What that does mean though, is that you’ll get a 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen, 5 megapixel camera with flash, multitouch features, Flash Lite 4 and all the usual integration with the likes of Twitter and Facebook.
If you are thinking of picking this up, it will be available in the UK first around Q2, possibly on Vodafone. No word on a US release yet, but we’ll keep you posted.
