I can't comment on the AT&T or Verizon issues but just from an Android and
hardware perspective, I have found the HTC Desire an excellent choice.

I don't know if you get the same hardware models in the US but I would
expect something similar if not the same.

I originally had a HTC Diamond and was far from impressed and vowed I would
never have another HTC, however, my sons talked my wife and I into 'just
having a look' at the HTC Desire.
My wife was suitably impressed so we opted to get one for her to trial and
after using it, I also found it quite comfortable to use and found the
functionality extremely good.
I bought one for myself and use a significant amount of the functionality,
aside from phone and text messaging, I have linked my home email account and
activated my gmail account and use internet banking and other web browsing
through it.
I also downloaded a couple of freeby games to play just to see how well it

It is excellent but like everything it isn't perfect.

The Android software seems to very good.
The HTC Desire seems to be very good.

One pitfall I encountered was with the plan I was on.
I found that with the size of downloads, I needed a more expensive plan to
cover the downloads as well.

Hope this helps.

Have a good weekend.

Subject: [PCTECH] Recommendations for Android based AT&T phone


I'm phone shopping and would like to get an android based smart phone on

Any specific recommendations?

I'd prefer it to be running the most current version of the OS possible and
have some memory expandability.



p.s. Please don't suggest I switch to Verizon. That's just not an option at
the moment.
