HTC Desire brings Android 2.1 to Japan, via SoftBank

Already available in the UK, the HTC Desire has just been announced by SoftBank, Japan’s third largest mobile carrier.

The handset will be available to Japanese customers starting late April, as “HTC Desire SoftBank X06HT” – and it looks like it will be the first Android 2.1 smartphone launched in Japan (where the Xperia X10 will also be available, but this one, as you already know, runs Android 1.6).

The HTC Desire from SoftBank doesn’t seem to be different from the European version, featuring a 3.7 inch WVGA AMOLED touchscreen display, Wi-Fi, GPS, 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 3.5mm headset jack, 5MP autofocus camera with D1 (720 x 480 pixels) video recording, and MicroSD card support.

SoftBank didn’t announce the price of its HTC Desire.
