HTC Desire: Finally here…

[NEW GADGET] The wait for HTC Desire is probably as long as the queues at Singapore Pools now. But the wait is over. SingTel finally send out the email blast to inform all its customers that it is time to embrace the most powerful Android phone available on SingTel.

Well the specifications say a lot about the phone; screen as big as iPhone, and over 500MB of RAM and ROM. On top of that, you get the 1 GHz snapdragon.

Google Nexus One is very similiar to the HTC Desire, but there is no operator in Singapore offering that phone on contract. Meaning to own a Nexus One, you have to pay the full amount of about S$800 I think. SingTel is offering the Desire at a very competitive price in my opinion.

S$448 for a basic plan w/o data and S$348 for a basic plan with data. Neat. (Of course, its only S$148 for a FLEXI Plus Plan.) Compare that against the recently released HTC Legend and its a pretty good deal, considering that Desire is much more powerful.

Finally check out the GSM Arena review of HTC Desire and you might just find the phone that can persuade you to drop your iPhone.
