HTC Desire unboxing video

desiregrab Well to be honest the title of the post may not be doing justice to the video, it’s a bit more than just an unboxing video!

I’ve been waiting patiently to get my hands on the HTC Desire since I saw it just before its launch at MWC last month. I previously had the Goolge Nexus One which I loved but the HTC Desire seemed to want to take Android to a whole new level with the customisation and Sense UI that HTC added on to it.

The HTC Desire is the second of the four handsets announced by HTC at MWC to actually go on sale. The Desire not far behind it’s smaller brother, the HTC Legend.

There is perhaps a lot of hype around the HTC Desire so I’m sure we are all hoping that it will live up to our expectations. I’m going to spend the next week using the HTC Desire as my main phone and I will be putting together the full review along the way.

For now have a look at my rather lengthy introduction to the HTC Desire in the video below. Hopefully I’ve covered enough in there to whet your appetite for more so please do make use of the forum to post your comments or questions and let me know what you would like me to cover in more detail.


By they way, the video is almost 30 minutes long so make sure your comfortable first!
