The HTC website is the source of new software downloads, soon to bring HD recording & better internal data storage management & who knows what in the future ?!?

I'm assuming that the Desire is more durable seeing as it's made of aluminium and the Galaxy is plastic.

My first Desire carked it after a week. It went away for reairs and never came backm=, however the dealers senst a new one a few days later. I am giving this one to my wife. Loads of toys but no practical apps for business.
