Default In Europe? HTC Desire S on O2 Reviewed

"One of the most popular Android smartphones of the last year was the HTC Desire, which maintained the number one spot in a fair number of tech-web site ranking systems. HTC have now built on that success by bringing to the market an updated replacement machine - the Desire S. The 'S' model maintains the sleek svelte 'medium' form factor but brings new capabilities and technology to the machine which brings it fully up to date."

SmartPhoneGurus did a thorough review of the HTC Desire S on the O2 network in the UK.  The popular original model from last year was the HTC Desire which was very similar to the Nexus One.  I don't agree with the reviewer that this version is "fully up to date".  It only has 1.1GB of built-in storage which I don't think is enough for a current phone.  It will take a MicroSDHC card and it does have 768MB of RAM which is great.  After checking on Wikipedia I found that it also has the second generation Snapdragon CPU which is good because that means it has the Adreno 205 which is a solid GPU, much better than the sub-par GPU of last years HTC phones.  Is anyone interested in this phone?  Besides the built-in storage it seems like a very capable device.  Check out the review for more details.
