HTC Desire to be available in two colors?
One of the two new high-end Android phones coming from HTC, the Desire has yet to be officially introduced by a carrier in the U.S. although most expect AT&T to be the network operator for the device. Originally offered in Urban Brown, HTC has just added a silver version of the phone. A gentleman by the name of Robert Webbe posted on the xda-developer's forum, pictures of the Desire in both colors. The Urban Brown version that was the original shade of the casing, just might not appeal to everyone which it seems the Taiwanese manufacturer realized. Thus, the silver variant of the Desire was born. Which of the two colors strikes your fancy?

The HTC Desire shares many of its specs and features with the Nexus One such as the 3.7 inch AMOLED WVGA display, the 1GHz Snapdragon processor under the hood, the 5MP camera and the Android 2.1 OS powering the device. As we've reported, the launch of the HTC Desire-expected through AT&T-could take place in May/June.

This is what I have been waiting for! I like the iphone but not Apple themselves so this is a Great alternative. Is anyone else as excited as I am for this phone to released? My entire family has iphones, can't wait to show them there is life without the iphone.

Just get the Nexus one. Same phone for the most part and you have your open source. And even better you dont have to wait you can order it today and most likely have it by tomorrow...

I think this is going to be a cool phone for AT&T. It's good they are going to put this phone out there. I like the design too. I'd consider it, but I bought the BackFlip, specifically because it has a keyboard and just it's unique itself. But this is a great alternative to the iPhone. I'm just getting used to Android. I'm having a bit of a hard time getting to the lack of apps on it. I feel the Apple apps are much more powerful, useful, and more fun in general.

Just because they blocked the features on the Backflip does not mean they will do the same for the Desire. Besides isn't that what Apple is doing? They are threating to block your itunes account if they find you have your phone unlocked. I would unlock it anyways. Are you one of those iphone supporters? Because it sure sounds like it!

It would be nice if t-mobile decided to pick this badboy up without all the restrictions. Or atleast sell the Nexus One in stores!

Oh? They don't sell it the Nexus one in stores, even though you can sign a two year agreement? That's stupid...I think there would be more attention to it if it was in the stores.
