Reviews: HTC Desire & Entourage eDGe

A couple pretty interesting reviews popped up today on Engadget and CrunchGear, covering the HTC Desire and Entourage eDGe, respectively. We thought you’d like to hear the scoop so we’ve provided a summarizing snippet of each with links to the full reviews.

HTC Desire Review
desire

The Desire is yet another fine piece of work from HTC – build quality is top notch as usual, and there’s little to complain about the software except for the Flash performance. Some may argue that the Desire lacks freshness since the Nexus One’s already shown it all, but we’d disagree – at the end of the day it’s mainly about the software and service, plus the Desire is available from more carriers to begin with (outside the US, anyway).

Entourage eDGe Dualbook Review
edge

The enTourage eDGe is a functional, easy-to-use device that currently defies formal classification. It’s primarily going to be useful to academics and people who spend a lot of time in books, but need more convenience than that offered by separate e-book reader and laptop. It has some warts, but offers surprising value in a first-generation device. [Read the full review]

    Got mine yesterday – absolutely love it. Screen is a joy to behold, and compared to my old phone (LG Viewty), well its juswt a different world. Roll on the divX support though. Would like to be able to get the stargazer app that iphone has got though. I know we have Google sky maps, but the SG app just looks so neat. Want Google maps turn by turn as well, just no idea if it has it or not yet.

    Anybody want to educate me on how you actually buy apps from the marketplace? Does it just get added to your phone bill, or what is the deal please – much appreciated, thanks.

    it has google navigate built in so u dont need to buy anything. Apps basically are bought through your account with google via google checkout. credit or debit card

    Nice to see a N1-type phone make it onto the carriers :)
