Desire questions


I've been eying the HTC Desire for a few days now. One thing that bothers me is the battery life. If I buy this (or any of these battery hungry phones) is I have to be prepared to charge it.

1) The phone does not seem to come with a cradle. There seem to be a few after market cradles out there, are they all created equal? Do any of them work better than others? For example, do all the cradles do usb sync and recharge the battery?

2) How long does it take to recharge the Desire from fully flat?

3) I have not physically used one of these phones. All the stores have only a plastic mock-up. Can someone tell me if the sort of multi-touch that the iPhone has where you can zoom in on a map or web page by opening it with your fingers or using two fingers to scroll around a page?
If not, is there some easy way to add this capability with some add-on?

Hey, its fantastic, don't sweat it!
1 don't know
2 3-4hour
3 yes, pinch to zoom etc as standard

2 outta 3 ain't bad!


Between 1 and 2 hours to fully charge for me depending on use through the day. The phones does two finger 'pinch' zooming the same as the iPhone, works very well too. I cannot comment on cradles though, I am happy with the usb cable but may get one at a later point though.
