I reckon €400 is still waaaay to much to pay for a mobile phone (but
maybe I haven't caught up with current thinking on the value of smart
phones or something).
Am I right in thinking that the HTC Desire is pretty much a Nexus One
with some minor tweaks?
AFAIK, Vodafone Ireland will be making this available "in the Spring" -
it'll be interesting to see what price point it comes in at.
