Google's Nexus One made waves in the smartphone industry. Big waves. Everyone knew that the phone was constructed by HTC but labeled by Google, and now it looks like HTC has revealed their own version of the Nexus One: the Desire.

Launched at Mobile World Congress, this ultra-sleek smartphone is basically a modified Nexus One, complete with a sensor key instead of a trackball and HTC's own "Sense" overlay atop Android 2.1. Most of the specifications remain in tact, as this one features a 3.7" AMOLED WVGA display, Flash 10.1 support, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, a rear camera with flash and a Home, Menu, Back and Search hard key below the screen.

The biggest reason to choose this over Google's Nexus One is Sense. Sense is a navigational user interface made by HTC, and if you're bored with the stock Android interface, this is definitely worth checking out. It's focused on social networking, with the HTC Friend Stream that seamlessly aggregates all of your social communication including Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr into one organised flow of updates. Price and release date are yet to be revealed, but given just how gorgeous this phone is, we're sure HTC will try to get it out on the double.

Well i've read pretty good reviews on the Nexus One, so i'd imagine this would should be equally good. :-)
