These two devices (both announced in early 2010) are quite different: the Desire is a high-end Android 2.1 smartphone, while the Smart is more like a smartphone wannabe, being based on Qualcomm’s Brew platform.
Already launched by other major UK carriers (like Orange), the HTC Smart features a WVGA AMOLED touchscreen display, Sense UI, Wi-Fi, A-GPS, 3.5mm headset jack, 5MP autofocus camera, and a Snapdragon processor at 1GHz.
You can also find Sense UI on the HTC Smart, but this handset only comes with a QVGA touchscreen display, 3.5mm headset jack, 3.2MP camera and a 300MHz processor.
O2 UK is offering both the Desire and the Smart for free on select plans. Customers can get the phones via O2’s online shop.
