Lazy poll is lazy  
A week or so ago, at that big Mobile conference thing, HTC officially announced the HTC Desire. It's a "clone" of the Nexus One, with one key improvement. It has physical buttons for the four home row(?) buttons rather than the (glitchy) touch buttons the Nexus One has. It also has the "HTC Sense" UI installed on top of vanilla Android 2.1, but i have no idea if that's good or bad.

Otherwise it seems to be mostly identical in all the key areas. Of course it isn't even coming out for a month or two, even if i did consider it a clearly better device.

So having finally jumped into the smartphone churn, how long until i end up feeling envious about a clearly superior product?

Smartphone cootie-catcher time! Using my patented fortune-telling process, I've also determined that you'll also have two kids, live in an orange house and marry a fireman named Frank.
