Default EU SAR Rating Received

For those interested, I inquired about the EU SAR Rating of the HTC Desire and today received an official response, which as far as I know isnt available online yet.

Hi again Jack,

We have now been issues with SAR values for the HTC Desire and they are as follows

0.752 W/Kg@10g (CE head)
1.12 W/Kg@10g (CE body)

Best regards,
Bjorn D
HTC
I'm actually pretty happy with these values as some other HTC models have had alot higher

Thanks for this. This looks like a relatively reasonable radiation level.

You're most welcome After looking at other competing phones such as the N900, Xperia X10 it has the lowest SAR rating of the group

Not safer as they only measure the effect of radiation in 1g of tissue instead of the EU's 10g

What's that about "CE Head" and "CE Body"?
What does each mean?
