As an iPhone 32G 3GS owner, I got to play with a Desire Thursday for about 20 minutes. Blown away! Very nice phone! Fast, awesome screen, nice interface, excellent on screen keyboard (no typos, I still make typos on my iPhone months after getting it), great slim design. Only negative, the speaker(s) was a bit tinny, but that's about it. May well be using eBay soon! :) (Going to wait until June to see what iPhone 4G/HD is like, but if the screen is not as large as the Desire, I'm defecting to Android.)
1. what about support for bluetooth handsets ?
2. can we have videos as ringtones ?
3. is 720p recording available?
4. If 720p recording is not available, can that be added as a part of android update.?
5. any protective sheilds / layers / cases available ?
6. Any free apps available or all apps to be bought ?
apps like fullscreen caller, blacklist, best profiles, etc, etc.....
7. when will it be available in india ?
8. Full screen picture calling ? or any apps
RonniejWales, 13 May 2010I am thinking of getting the Desire. I belive it doesn't have xcel on it or word. I am a healt... moreHi Ron,
in the review they say something like this:
"Organizer and Quick Office as usual
The HTC Desire comes with the usual set of organizing apps. It has a preinstalled document viewer (not all droids do), which handles office files just fine.
We are talking about the Quickoffice app, which has support for viewing Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, including the Office 2007 versions.
For editing, you will need to get the paid app though. There is also a PDF viewer."
And, I can't belive I'm saying this, if you need the cammera for you wirk then the x10 has a better cammera.
But just go to a local store and try the devices. Take a picture (as you would for your job) and ask them to show it to you on the monitor.
