My HTC Desire must be getting on for 2 years old now -- can't remember exactly when I bought it -- and I'm still very happy with it. It did have some kind of internal problem after about 6 months, but HTC replaced it f.o.c., and no problems since then. But one thing that does annoy me is that HTC seem to have already ceased supporting it. I was looking for a spare battery the other day, for when I go travelling, so went initially to the HTC UK web site, and Desire didn't feature on any of their drop-down lists. Had to go to Amazon to get what I wanted, so I'm not so confident that what I've got is a brand-new battery.
