For far too long I’ve been using simple phones with no complex functions which I so hunger for in mobile devices. I’ve been opting for another phone and I eyed the Google Nexus One. I was wondering how I can get Google Nexus One in the Philippines and I realized it had to involve a lot of processes such as getting an IP address which is U.S. based and also having an address from Singapore and HK. I realized I just couldn’t do something like that because it was too much of a hassle.
That was until I heard about HTC Desire. The HTC Desire OS is the well desired Android 2.1 OS. HTC Desire sports a nice sleek look, optical trackpad and a huge screen among its many lovely characteristics.
But why should I buy an HTC Desire?
Here are the list of things I badly need for a phone:
- Lots of memory for storing messages
- Email management
- Mobile GPS
- Mobile Maps
- Mobile browsing
- Mobile Browsing (I repeated it twice to emphasize it’s importance)
Those are basically the important things I need and with our Mobile Network service providers I can finally come up with a monthly plan that will satisfy my desires.
Top 10 Reasons to desire the Desire
- It’s got a huge screen
- It’s got easy data transfer from PC to mobile
- It’s gotten really close to web browsing in PC
- It’s damn powerful
- There’s an App store from Google’s developers. (heck, it’s Google, need I say more?)
- Email Management is super easy with Email App
- You’ll never get lost with its GPS system, Google maps and other direction giving apps
- It’s well within the 27K php (600$) budget (just my guess, hopefully it’ll come cheaper)
- The Google Nexus phone was awesome, this is “awesomer”.
- You can develop your own apps by following the Google Android Developers instructions (perfect for developers)
Wait, Android Browser Supports Flash?!
According to some people who have already tried the device, yes it does. BUT it will slow down the loading of page, I’m still curious though on how FB apps will work with this.
So when can I buy This?!
Unfortunately it’s still somewhere mid this year, but I’m willing to wait for such a damn good phone.
