Hilman Not much TELUS can do about the shortage of the AMOLED screens, the question is, is the Sony Super LCD better/worse???.

HTC Desire for Telus shipping with Sony LCD display, not AMOLED
By Michelle Ruhfass • July 15, 2010

HTC will have to switch many if not all of its phones from AMOLED displays to LCDs due to a supply crisis at Samsung, Korean cell carrier KT said this week. Samsung's insistence on reserving the already scarce supply for the Super AMOLEDs in the Galaxy S has left HTC with no choice but to use LCDs for the Desire, Droid Incredible and Nexus One, three of its most important phones. The current shortfall was enough to push back the Korean Nexus One launch a month to July.

All of the phones will instead use Sony's high-grade Super TFT LCD to dampen any perceived loss in quality.

wbarbour One note on the HTC Desire through Telus. If you were expecting the AMOLED display, read this:
It's coming with a Sony LCD display instead.

Hilman Looks really good and all the reviews I have read were rated 9/10. Looks like my Hero with Android 1.5 is going to get replaced very soon

Gotta say, nice to have multiple hspa providers around. even if they don't really compete, at least it brings more options for hardware to purchase. Awesome to see the Desire with NAM 3G becoming available. I wonder what a no-contract price will be.

BGY11 Aside from the camera (and physical Back/Home/Search) buttons, the Desire is indeed very similar to the Incredible.

Looks like it will be a great option for Telus Mobility users.

TorontoColin All of Canada's carriers already have or are about to switch to HSPA networks, unless I'm missing a small regional somewhere. Bell/Telus launched their joint HSPA network on the same 850 frequency as Rogers, and MTS and SaskTel have either launched or are about to launch the same. The new carriers (Mobilicity, Wind, Shaw, and Videotron) are launching HSPA networks on the 1700 frequency. I don't know what Eastlink's plans are.

Bell/Telus still operate their CDMA networks but generally only for feature phones now. There is speculation that they may regulate them to discount brands. Public Mobile has launched a new CDMA network in Toronto and Montreal this year.

CDMA isn't quite dead, but it also isn't going to be a player for high-end smartphones in Canada.

BGY11 All cell phones are digital now and have been for quite a few years (whether it's CDMA, GSM, or HSPA).

All three carriers have dropped the old AMPS (Analog) networks. Rogers also dropped their first digital network (TDMA) a few years back.
2010-07-13 01:45 AM
Newb777 So CDMA is all but dead, much like digital was up until a few years ago on Rogers? And now there is no more digital or am I confusing digital with analog?

TorontoColin New Bell/Telus phones are almost all HSPA, not CDMA.
2010-07-13 12:28 AM
Newb777 Even the blackberry on Bell can use 3G. Unless I am mistaken, most of the new phones that Bell and Telus have are HSPA and CDMA? I hope HTC makes something better than the Incredible soon, otherwise next year I will have to get the iPhone 5.
2010-07-12 09:54 PM
TorontoColin Rogers cannot carry the Incredible as it stands because Rogers doesn't have a CDMA network. HTC pumps out phones so quickly that it is much more likely they'll simply make a newer, better model with an HSPA radio than add one to the Incredible.
2010-07-12 04:11 PM
Newb777 I certainly hope Rogers gets the Incredible, especially how the iPhone 4 is like Windows Vista in terms of issues (read that in a blog) and Consumer Reports won't recommend the iPhone 4!

Telus will be releasing the HTC Desire, formerly named the Triumph.

Virgin released the HTC Legend a few days ago, Bell to follow.

Before you accuse others of misinformation, make sure that statement isn't hypocritical
