Now wifi is fast enough to make video call and apple picked up and make it big when everyone forgot about it. It is not necessary?? What if ur girlfriend goes different college and u want to videocall her when u using toilet (nothing dirty lol)?? u wanna hold laptop or iphone? What if u want to show ur kid playing?? moving laptop to his motion or iphone?
When is it going to be sold in Malaysia???! Can't wait! Thank god i didnt buy th Desire yet.. fuhh.. :)

with regards to 2.2 and moving apps to sd card. Not all apps can be moved it is up to the developer of the app. I have a desire with 2.2 and it is very frustrating when i still run out of memory
Anonymous, 22 Sep 2010HTc evo $g has 1500 mAh and this phone has 1230mAh battery?????That's because this phone has the upgraded cpu and gpu which have a lower power consumption, HTC are claiming that this phone will have 20% more battery life than the original Desire.
Jonathan, 23 Sep 2010Agreed 110% agreed!!!I agree my past 6 Phones have had front cameras and i never used them i curently have the dell streak and the only reason why my front camera gets used is because my Grilfriend uses it as a mirror thats it but its prety pointless in my eyes i dont think video calls will take off any time in the neer feuture
Khalil, 23 Sep 2010thats because the app ittself has to also support the "move to sd card" option. so i... morei know !! but with cooked rom like xda or modaco you can move all app to sd card ... by the way i love my desire and i love desire hd too ...cant wait too buy it

We have had two cameras on phones since the mid 1990's and video calling never really took off. Just because Apple are trying to raise a dead dinosaur now doesn't necessarily mean it is needed. Good luck to Apple but I don't think there is much appetite for 'facetime'.
this is like the baddest phone the only fault i find is there aint no web cam im a big fan of htc but every time i fall 4 a phone there is at least 1 fault
Slave of Allah, 23 Sep 2010Hi Rezmo, That issue of yours is fixed in Android v2.2. So if you upgrade your device wit... moreyeah i know ,my device is 2.2 but i still cant move my app to sd card .. the move to sd card button for most of the app is dark
the handset looks flashy and it runs android to which is a great bonus and probably the best thing about all the hts phones these days. but for such a high tech phone it is one of the only phones coming out these days that doesn't have a secondary camera which means no video calling. that would be the only thing holding me back from getting this phone along with my previous experience of having a touch diamond. i hope that HTC have taken a leaf out of apple's book and made their screens as touch sensetive. the touch diamond was unresponsive and inacurate no matter how much i calibrated it.
