Getting my new phone tommorow, the HTC Desire HD...

I have never owned a smartphone before with the Andriod os and so i decided i would splash out a little and get the best one on the market.

I've been told the iphone 4 has nothing on the Desire HD...

Also any advice on which apps i should get...I have already seen the 'golflogix' and being a keen golfer this should be pretty damn good.

My Desire HD came today...Absolutly loving this smartphone (day later than said date), it is unbelievably fast, i have never seen response times like this on a phone..It is fully booted before the iphone4's logo screen has gone off. :)

how much do these things go for?

In Australia you can get a Desire outright for like 500 bux, on a plan for nothing. My mate a work got one and loves it. My Dad got one too. I'm waiting till next year to compare Apple, Android and WM7.

are you talking about desire or desire hd

Ummm, the regular one I think?? HD is just out here and they had their phones last month.

Dont quote me on this but i think the Desire has the froyo android 1 os and the desire hd has the froyo android 2 os.

There is a lot of potential with android as far as games and apps go, many argue that they have already surpassed Apple.

Ive only installed a few apps for the time being, talking tom cat is hilarious and Angry birds...i also installed a couple of emulators which run flawlessly although on screen d-pad and buttons make controls a little fiddly.

Angry birds has some of the best sound effects evar!! :lol:

For those wondering what the game is you basically slingshot a ball (bird) into an object to try to kill the pigs. They stole the birds eggs so now they apparently kamikaze the pigs.
