As expected, HTC this morning announced three new smartphones at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Featuring Android and Windows Mobile, the devices vary a bit in size and specifications. Let's get into them.
At the core, the Desire is HTC's version of the Nexus One. Featuring specs that are nearly identical to the popular Google device (which just so happens to be manufactured by HTC), the Desire will offer:
As I said, nearly identical to the Nexus One, but with more HTC flair, the introduction of physical buttons, an optical trackpad, and the inclusion of Sense. If one of your primary complaints about the Nexus One was the lack of HTC's Sense UI, this is the device that you want to get your hands on.
There's no confirmation to go along witht this, but I see a design like this replacing Verizon's HTC Droid Eris at some point in the future (we already know it's going to replace the Hero, so it makes sense). For now, it looks like it's on the GSM side (and European GSM, at that). More on that below.
Think HTC Touch here, but with an improved design and specifications list. We were also told that the internals of the phone (under the back screws) are "fiery yellow" (check it out at your own risk).
All of the devices discussed above will launch with GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, and HSPA/WCDMA 900/2100 MHz connectivity. Available in Europe and Asia Pacific at launch, I'm sure they'll move to the United States. Wireless bands aside, do any of these devices tickle your fancy?
