HTC Desire has just received the “Hottest New Phone for 2010” award, for the device that created the most excitement among consumers. The handset was unveiled during the Mobile World Congress 2010 in February and has been launched by many major carriers internationally. Also, it has sold quite well.

Desire received an unanimous vote from the judges of this competition. We have to mention (for those who don’t know), that Desire is a reworked version of Google Nexus One, with the advantage of combining the HTC Sense UI skin with the Android 2.1 OS. The handset’s 3.7 inch AMOLED display is a major advantage, as is the device’s Qualcomm 1GHz Snapdragon processor.

There’s also a capacitive touchscreen on board, with multitouch support in the web browser. HTC also implemented new software on the phone, like Friendstream, syncing Twitter, Facebook and Flickr accounts, streaming them into a single feed. What do you say, does the handset deserve the title of “Hottest New Phone for 2010”?
