Whatever...you see one HTC phone, you've seen them all.

True, but they seem to outshine the competition.

Now that's just dumb. How do they have any less diversity than any other brand? They have WinMo and Android, keyboard, no keyboard, big, small. Tell us who is more diverse and how. Not Blackberry. Not Palm. Some brands might have more models, but it's usually just more crap.

They all look the same, open your eyes. I don't question processor speeds or operating systems. But they all have the same cheap plastic casing with buttons and trackballs in the same place. Try for a little diversity. Now you're just dumb.

Really? The Imagio, Nexus One, Touch Pro, Eris/Hero, Ozone/Dash, HD2, Legend and Touch Pro all look the same? They all have trackballs? They all have the same construction? If by "same" you mean "significantly different" then, yeah, you're right, they're all the same. Again, what manufacturer do you think has more diversity other than the low-end crap phones. You're stupid.

Well since the Legend uses an aluminum unibody they don't all have the same cheap casing. Also it uses a new optical trackball instead. And here is how they are made... http://www.intomobile.com/2010

so is this phone(htc desire) better than the nexus one??? I like the fact that it comes with an FM radio built in, thats gotta be a first for an android phone, and for someone like me who actually listens to fm radio on a phone whilst working this is a deffinate plus. I will be very interested in the reviews of this phone

technically the Moto Cliq has an FM radio chip, but for some reason its not activated. Modders have been trying to get it to work for some time :)

However....the one thing that puts me off buying HTC phones is that in 6 months time they bring out a new version of the phone you paid a whole load of money for, and everything about it is better. my current phone is the HTC Touch HD. I wanted that phone so bad I went on a 2 year contract with orange as soon as it came out, and what happened in 6 months? they brought out the HD2, which left my phone dead in the water. Which is one of the reasons why the iphone is so appealing, because although they have brought out new versions of the iphone, its still basically the same, and they bring out updates for it which works on all models.

So you are upset that they keep improving their products? Or you think they are intentionally conspiring to gradually release available technology so as to generate designed obsolesence? Why is your HD dead in the water? It's no more dead in the water than the iPhone. Or would you rather have a phone that has barely improved, just because there is mothing markedly better by the same manufacturer?

Yeah, you gotta be happy with what you got, or pay more for annual upgrades and save up. Theres no way you're gonna keep up with the technology in this market.
16. remixfa (Posts: 13902; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)
the reason why the iphone is so UNappealing to me is that its barely changed in 3 years, which means its 3 years behind the curve LOL. Just get the best for your needs and dont worry about the 6 month cycle of phones. Geesh, you will never keep up unless you like to blow like 600 every 6 months just to say you have the "top phone" at the moment.. LOL.

Does anyone know if i purchase the Desire from Expansys will it work in the US (ATT or Tmobile?), and if so will it be edge only or 3G/HSPA?

nice story about spring and warm weather. how much more fluff can you add to a "story?" This article could have been written in one sentence.

Why is it that every mobile company has to outdo the next, we are never going to settle with these phones, we are always going to be one step behind our own hopes for technology. Although I think we have plateaued with the blackberry playbook in all its glory.
