as for x10 vs desire, it rly depends on personal taste.

- screen:
desire has a smaller screen but more dpi and amoled so its a better quality screen, just smaller. also currently the x10 is limited to 65k. updating from android 1.6 to 2.1 shud solve this problem, but y w8 for the update to bcom available?

- input methods:
desire has multitouch (which se x10 shud also get wen its updated to android 2.1, but y w8?) desire also has an optical trackball which can be useful if u dont want ur screen to hv several fingerprints and its probably more precise than ur fingers alone. desire also has a proximity sensor which is gr8 but rly not all that important. the x10 is scratch resistant which is always a good thing.

- performance and os/ui:
depends on taste. i find xperia ui v beautiful but too blue at times. htc ui is in my opinion simpler and less demanding on the phone so it might perform slightly better. also the htc has much more ram and this shud gr8ly improve performance. desire comes with android 2.1 out of the box. with the x10 ull hv to w8 for se to make that update available and that might take some time.

- media:
in terms of cam quality and features, x10 wins. it records better video as well. the desire is hardware capable of recording video at the same resolution and quality (technically) but its limited to d1 by software which is a shame. however, sound quality shud be better on the desire since it has dolby sound enhancement.

- battery life:
x10 wins, but both shud last u a full day of heavy use.

- extras:
desire comes with a digital compass for better navigation as well as a lot of widgets designed specifically by htc for the ui, such as facebook, twitter, flickr... apps. also going back to what i mentioned about hving more buttons: its got a dedicated search key. definitly useful. the desire also has radio. in my opinion, its not a v useful feature but some ppl rly want it. also for some reason it says x10 is expandable up to 16gb (this might be a gsmarena mistake) but the desire is expandable up to 32gb. the more the better here as u dont wna end up with several microsd cards. the x10 also has a few extras. it comes with an 8gb microsd card while u will need to buy 1 for the desire. also its got trackid (as far as im aware of) which helps identify tracks of songs u might not know the name of. a cool feature but not v useful.

- price:
according to some preorders, the htc desire is €200 cheaper than the x10. and so far i hvnt found a single preorder (where i live) where the x10 is cheaper than the desire. both these phones r similar so i dont c the point in paying that much more for the x10 especially wen it will come with out of the box in need of updates.

personally id choose the x10. but thats just me. id also understand y ppl wud choose the x10. cheaper alternatives of both r x10 mini, x10 mini pro (which comes with a qwerty keyboard), and htc legend (which i think is the best looking android phone currently available)

And for all the people who still don't believe that samsung has the slowest devices ever, and HTC handsets are way faster than them, pls take a look on these videos, before gsmarena removes them :)

They finally added a radio, one of the most common features and HTC always forgets, I will be getting this one.
I don't get why so many top of the line phones omit this simple feature.

The HTC Desire like it's name suggests is a truly desirable handset but it has a major drawback,it doesn't have a secondary camera so you can't make video calls (just like on the iPhone) even though it's not that much used it is always good to have it on board,when you want to show something quickly it's a superb tool,that's why i'm gonna give it a miss, sooner or later Nokia or Samsung going to bring something betta on the market with videocall function !%90 of Nokia & Samsung handsets have have sec. cams on board. I don't understand why they make 3.5G handsets without a secondary cam?

Do we have some information on the "Dolby Mobile sound enhancement" supposedly onboard the Desire? What is that exactly and does that really mean improved music and video play? Is the standard delivered headphone also pretty good?

This is much the Nexus + radio FM. HTC are outdoing themselves!
