Same price gonna cost much better smart phone - Samsung Galaxy S II.
Also do something with HTC crappy photo camera. If phone camera installed into phone, then must be useful but unfortunately with HTC crappy photo camera impossible to make good quality pics.
Look example for Nokia N8 and even Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc, XPERIA X10 many times better pics quality!
So get a life HTC!

These phones don't even have Gingerbread. It was a lot cheaper to buy a new battery for my HD2 and have Froyo and Gingerbread on it :)

The product designers in HTC need to be fired. I won't get a new phone unless it is clearly superior to the HD2. See below as a starting point.

4.5" and at least 1200x800, Gorilla Glass or equivalent, S-AMOLED PLUS/NOVA type screen. Drop in a big battery, dual/tri/quad core w/Icecream OS onboard [min 1GB RAM], 1080p playback and recording, min 8MP stills, 2MP front camera, dual band Wifi N, BT 3.0+HS, and we're talking.

No one's come with the screen specs yet. Samsung and LG on the way with the rest. Come on HTC!

Whats the point of having two soo similiarly spec'd phones! I wouldn't even bother looking at the desire S! But then again I wouldn't bother looking at HTC either

This will only function if some carriers will be offering the Desire S with some contract plans and actions...500 is really overpriced for something that is still on the market...

The only reason I'm waiting for the Desire S is because it's a bit smaller than the original Desire, plus it has 1.1 GB of ROM. And that's it. But I won't pay an additional 130 EUR for these "upgrades."

If 500 EUR will be the final launching price for Desire S, I might as well buy the original Desire instead.

The Motorola Defy once had a starting price of 350.

The Desire S is slightly thinner than the Defy, has Super-LCD instead of TFT, with 200MHz more and uses Android v2.3 but it's not IP67 certified.

Are the 150 more really worth it?! I don't know.

520 euro for incredible S is not incredible at all

My desire for HTC's incredible phones is worth 100 less. So overpriced!
