HTC Desire hits Vodafone April 8th

Keen on an HTC Desire and insisting on Vodafone UK as your network of choice?  The carrier has just told us that preorders for the Android 2.1 smartphone are being taken from today, with shipments expected on April 8th.  As we predicted, the Desire is available from free on select monthly contracts; £30 ($45) per month (for 23 months) gets you the Desire plus 900 minutes (if ordered online), unlimited SMS and a 500MB data allowance.

The Desire has a 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen, 1GHz Snapdragon processor, HSPA, WiFi b/g and Bluetooth, along with HTC's Sense UI and accompanying widgets.  If you're still on the fence about the HTC Desire, check out our full review (plus lashings of video) from earlier this week.
