I have the Desire and it is every bit as good as it is made out to be. I am currently traveling on business and was fortunate enough to be able to pick one up in the UK. Will be back in SA in June and have no regrets about having traded my iPhone in on it. It never lags or slows down. T3 magazine has rated it the world's best phone. All for good reason. Watch this one in SA. The launch was in the UK and almost 2 months down the line, they still cannot keep up with the customer demands for it. PS. Reception where I work is terrible and all my data usage is via the Wifi in my hotel. I get a good 40-45 hours usage out of the phone. Better than I expected given the specs of the phone. Truly a marvel and some bucks well spent.
