Default Desire will DEFINATELY have speech to text messaging.

I've been saying this for a while, Speech to Text is a feature of 2.1 and not a Nexus exclusive feature. The Desire's website (http://desirehtc.com/) pretty much confirms it on the "android page".

What's that all about then?
Launched in January 2010, and known in the trade as Eclair, this is basically an update to the operating system. In laymans terms, it's a sexier looking interface. But it's not quite that simple.
Now, for example, your Wallpapers can be animated, injecting your screen with a new lease of life. This works particularly well with the AMOLED screen.
Rather excitingly, it brings us into a realm where voice-to-text is a reality in all text fields. Imagine sending texts or emails simply by talking to your phone. Now do it, we're there.
A widget offering constant weather reviews is now possible and this can be echoed with news feeds and multi-tab functions. Check this out on the HTC Desire, it's gorgeous and with GPRS functionality it's specific to your location.
Photo albums have been enhanced with a cool new 3-D view which is really slick. All the better to showcase your holiday pix.
Top this off with helicopter views of your interface and pinch to zoom capability and we think you've got a lovely little armoury of new tricks to keep you informed and amused.

Nice, but I hope it is quite accurate, especially for people who english is not their primary language. This kind of people usually has distinctive "accent" which could produce inaccurate to text translation.

Sure is - see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAG66ts_R3M

That vid is of the Nexus which hasn't been released outside US yet, which makes it even more impressive

MY GUIDES:

Note: Im very slack at replying to PMs, since I live a busy life and as much as I love XDA, I rarely get a chance to get on it these days.
It's best to questions to the forums, as I may take a long time to respond.

| Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v | Galaxy Nexus | Nexus 7 |
