Your HTC Desire is a stunning Android smartphone packed with innovations.

Easily one of the best mobile phones on the market, your HTC Desire has a super-fast 1 GHz processor with enough power for every application you choose to run.

The crystal-clear AMOLED touchscreen is ideal for web browsing and movie watching.

The intuitive HTC Sense interface lets you easily navigate menus, select applications, and write messages.

You can customise each of the 7 home screens with your choice of over 100 pre-installed widgets, and assign a home screen for each of your favourite things from friends to applications, music, movies, and web browsing.

If you want to save yourself a bit of scrolling - press the home button or pinch the screen to see all seven screens in a simple thumbnail view.

Tap the shopping basket icon on your home screen to visit Android Market where over 80,000 applications, games, and services are waiting to be discovered.

You can download content straight to your smartphone, so invest in a MicroSD card (up to 32GB), which will give you tons more storage space for all of your favourite music, photos, movies, and applications.

Your HTC Desire has an innovative Friend Stream widget, which lets you quickly connect and communicate with all of your contacts, and see every update from all your social networks in one clear view.

Email is just as easy too, as you can receive all of your work and personal messages, from Microsoft® Outlook to Hotmail and Yahoo! on your mobile phone.

The pre-installed Gtalk application is great for a quick natter.

While away from the office you can switch on ‘Out of Office’ and if the phone rings while you are in a meeting just flip it face down to mute the ringer.

You can comfortably browse the web on your mobile phone thanks to its large, bright screen and speedy internet connection.

HTC Desire has an advanced web browser that lets you zoom in on detail just by pinching the screen, and you can also tab or bookmark websites just as you would on your PC or laptop.

If you want to browse for longer consider purchasing a battery extender pack (sold separately) and enjoy hours more browsing, chatting, and gaming time.

With a screen that is ‘brighter and crisper than that of the best PCs’ (Wall Street Journal), and powerful built-in speakers, HTC Desire is great for movie watching and music playback on the move.

You can purchase a pair of headphones or portable speakers and turn your mobile phone into a mini entertainment centre.

The integrated 5 Megapixel camera captures high quality photos, and it is really easy to make your own videos too, which you can upload straight to your YouTube account and share with friends.

Each picture you take is automatically tagged with a GPS location by HTC Footprints, so you can put your snapshots into categories, like shops or restaurants, and always find your way back to a favourite place.

Whether you are new to smartphones or a seasoned pro, you will find HTC Desire a joy to use.

This powerful, user-friendly phone is packed with coveted mobile phone features, from Google Maps with voice navigation to Quick Office for editing documents.

Your HTC Desire is so impressive that it is being called a Super-phone.
