This year's 15 most anticipated mobile technologies

From smartphones to mobile operating systems


We've rounded up the 15 most highly anticipated mobile technologies set to appear later this year.

HTC Desire

Almost identical to the Google Nexus One, the HTC Desire boasts a 3.7in AMOLED display, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, and a slim, full-touchscreen design.

The hardware has a few key differences, however. Like another HTC phone, the Legend, the Desire trades the trackball for an optical trackpad.

The HTC Desire also has an FM radio, which the Nexus One lacks.

In terms of software, the Desire - like the Legend and the HD2 - will run the updated HTC Sense interface, rather than the out-of-the-box Android 2.1 interface that the Nexus One sports.
