Lightbulb [COMP]HTC Desire Silver VS Brown [Pics + Video]

Greetings

I havent seen the picture of both colors side by side here in the forum so I thought I put the pictures here for people to come and see directly

I prefer the HTC Legend body, but those are the body alternatives (Silver or Urban Brown) if you want a full horse power of the HTC Desire






which colour do you prefer [?]

agreed, .. i wish that they shoved the horse power of this beast in a legend-like unibody ...

but meh, cant have everything right?

the urban brown will be nice, it will catch people's eyes (is it black? is it brown? what is it?) Lol

there is no "black" desire, .. its Urban brown, .. sometimes it looks black in the pictures but it isnt really black

contact clove.co.uk, and ask them wither they will get a silver version, they are very helpful

They are both ugly, if only the brown one was brushed metal like on Hero
Silver paints tend to scratch very easily

Hi I just received an interesting response from a mail I sent HTC - I asked if it was possible to tell from the part number as to what colour the device will be and what would be avaliable sim free in the UK;

Thanks for your email,

In regards to this the current pre-order will be for the item as shown in the picture which will hopefully be the black/grey colour, we will have more info closer to release day and if you are unhappy about pre-ordering an item without knowing the colour is confirmed i would advise holding this until it is evident the colour that is going to be released,

So it would appear there is no brown model at all! Which makes sense since it doesn't look brown in any of the pics I have seen. Personally I want a silver one.

I personally like the silver version, it looks more expensive and high-quality. However, scratches will probably be more apparent D=
