It’s no HTC Desire HD, but we like the original HTC Desire enough to be pleased its finally arrived on US shores thanks to U.S. Cellular. The carrier is now offering the Android 2.1 smartphone for $199.95 after a mail-in rebate, complete with a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, HTC Sense UI and 3.7-inch Super LCD display (rather than the AMOLED panels that are in such short supply).
There’s also an 8GB microSD card, 5-megapixel autofocus camera, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS, along with Flash Lite support in the browser. HTC had tipped the Desire’s August US debut back in June, at the time only saying that a regional operator would be offering it.
