Most of the world know the Nexus One’s technical specifications but what does the HTC Desire pack?

    Nice! I bought the Desire because I live in Europe and Google decided not to give us Nexus one :/… Anyway It’s really been bothering me what those 64Mb memory was used for, being most of a PC geek I couldn’t accept that strange size in anything, and guessed it was one slow 512 module and one really fast 64Mb module. I thought it was most likely used for something like this, but I find it strange they don’t promote it more since it’s a really nice feature.

    Are these the official specs? It definitely doesn’t have RDS on the FM radio and it doesn’t record video at 720p.

    • Jon Says:

      Yes they were taken from the HTC website… I think 720p is coming in the next software update and my radio definitely DOES have RDS…Do you have a good reception where you are?

      • Jon B Says:

        Ah, that may explain things. Reception is poor where I live but I’ll try it when I’m out and about. There’s no indication that the radio is RDS though, no toggle to switch it on or off or anything…?

      • Jon Says:

        No I think it’s just on permanently to be honest. However, the RDS might not be quite what you think. By RDS, it only give you the station name – not any scrolling text/information. Take a look at the Wikipedia entry here:

        You’ll see that all RDS means is that it’ll receive anything from the station name (Programme Service) to text and information. I suppose it could just be a limit of the internal FM Radio app and maybe other radio apps support more information through RDS…
