It seems we will have a lot of Android mobile phones coming this April so prepare for Android domination in the UK.
Google Nexus One
First there's the Google Nexus One, a Google branded mobile phone made by HTC which will be exclusive to Vodafone. The Google Nexus One features a 1GHz processor, 3.7 inches AMOLED touchscreen, and 5 megapixel camera among others.
Next there's the HTC Desire which is HTC's own version of the Google Nexus One. It has almost the exact same specs as the Google Nexus One except for some subtle design changes. Check my Google Nexus One and HTC Desire comparison to see more differences.
Another Android phone is the HTC Legend which is the successor of the HTC Hero. It has a slightly slower processor than the HTC Desire and Google Nexus One but it has the latest version of the Android OS. Another improvement of the HTC Legend from the HTC Hero is the amount of RAM it supports which is 384MB. With a faster processor and bigger RAM, HTC Hero owners should not hesitate to upgrade. Vodafone already has pricing for the HTC Legend though I'm not sure if Vodafone has exclusive rights to this HTC Smartphone.
Sony Ericsson Xperia X10
Finally, don't think that HTC has dominance over the Android market because Sony Ericsson's much awaited Android phone: the Xperia X10 will also be available on Vodafone this April, at least, if the “coming soon” page of Vodafone's website is to be believed. Like the HTC Desire, Hero, and Legend, the Xperia X10 will have its own version of its HTC Sense or simply, a custom homescreen for Android. Sony Ericsson's Android handset sports a massive 4 inch capacitive screen, 384MB of RAM, 1 GHz snapdragon processor, and its most prominent feature that's probably the deal breaker: an 8 megapixel camera, the first Android phone to break the 5 megapixel barrier.
Android fans will have a lot of thinking and researching to do because these are a lot of choices and these phones don't come cheap so again, do a lot of thinking before you let go of your hard earned money.
