HTC Desire coming to O2

HTC Desire coming to O2

Official correspondence from O2 has confirmed that it will be launching the HTC Desire when it arrives in the UK, although T-Mobile will be the first network to offer it in March.

An O2 representative confirmed the announcement this week, making it the fourth UK network to jump on the Desire bandwagon alongside Vodafone, Orange and T-Mobile.

O2 would not confirm as to whether or not it had also got its hands on the retail rights for the HTC Legend, although O2 is clearly keen on pushing its expansive smartphone range even further after it lost out on iPhone exclusivity last year.

A third HTC smartphone, the Smart has also been confirmed for an O2 release, according to TechRadar. This addition is part of O2's drive to bring entry level smartphones to more of its customers in the future.

The HTC Desire was originally codenamed the Bravo during development and it is essentially the same as the Google Nexus One, but with HTC's own Sense interface and an optical trackpad in place of a trackball for navigation.
