  1. The HTC Desire is one of those phones which comfortably doubles
    up as both a versatile smartphone as well as a fashion statement in mobile
    phone form. Along with the ‘gross’ factor, this wallpaper is definetely a conversation starter.
    But once connected, you can transfer files to and from
    your phone (wirelessly) and much more.
