I have heard that the HTC Desire

has been named as the best mobile phone in the world, and as it's available from my network provider (T-Mobile), and as I'm going to be entering a new contract in 8 weeks time I wondered if I should forget about a new Blackberry and go for the HTC.

Does anyone have any opinions on the subject?

Am in very similar position to FE so would also be glad of opinions. Especially, has anyone got any experience of it's Bluetooth performance and, specifically, pairing it (successfully or otherwise) with the new Honda Accord hands-free systems?

Thanks

I say 'interestingly', because that usually means (a) it's rubbish or (b) it's so popular that the PR teams can't get hold of stock. Speaking to a chap I know at the BBC it is definitely the latter, and after I was having a play with one at the weekend, I can see why. It really is a nice piece of kit. Even better - we got it in the UK before they did in the States! Hence our sister title PC World calling it 'the best technology you can't buy'.

We're hoping to get a review sample soon. You can find a decent deal on the Desire via PC Advisor's Mobile Phone store:

It would be good to have a comparison with the Desire and the iPhone 4g allegedly due this month.

Having had HTC phones in the past their biggest problem was they were quite flimsy and prone to breaking. I hope this is not the case with the Desire because the review I read gave it a huge thumbs up.

Actually the HTC Desire I saw had a cracked camera, 48 hours after purchase! We're on the case to get a review, still having to wait...

price aside id still go for the desire over the iphone cause of its customisation.
