Another UK operator has confirmed it is to offer the new HTC Desire, leaving O2 as the only major network that hasn't got in touch with a related announcement.

While T-Mobile is to offer the HTC Desire in March, Orange has announced it will get it from April and Vodafone, with no UK-specific plans revealed, says it will offer the Android phone in Europe in Q2.

3 has now chimed in with its news saying it is to offer the phone on its 3G network this spring. The European version of the Google Nexus One, the Desire boasts an impressive spec list that includes a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, a 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen display and a 5-megapixel camera capable of 720p video capture.

"HTC is producing some fantastic internet phones at the moment, and are really leading the pack. Like us, they really understand what consumers want from the Internet on their phone - a flexible and intuitive interface, coupled with a reliable 3G network that offers a strong and speedy connection", Sylvia Chind, head of branded devices says in a press release.

"Our network is growing every day and the HTC Desire is one of many internet phones set to enter our range this year to really make the most of it".
