    Ok... search on google for "Need for Speed Shift Snapdragon"

    You can get the apk file for snapdragon devices, and that includes the desire.

    Install it.

    This thing runs SOOO smoothly. I was worried that gaming on a snapdragon was always going to be rubbish, but this game easily rivals anything on the iPhone in terms of graphics and smoothness.

    I am amazed no one else is talking about this.

    The original rip from the droid X didnt work on snapdragon devices, but this version works amazingly. It makes Raging Thunder look like a joke.

    No worries. You are right... easily best 3d game on Android at the moment. And it runs flawlessly on the desire. Some of the menus seem a little low resolution, but once you are racing it is very sharp and SMOOOOOOTH.

    I highly recommend anyone with a Desire get this game!

    For those unsure how... download the .apk file (after searching on google and MAKE SURE YOU GET THE VERSION FOR SNAPDRAGON).

    Connect you phone to comp. Make a new folder called "NFS" at the top level of the SD Card. Then go to applications setting and select "run non-market apps" or whatever it is called.

    Then open Astro file manager (free download from market) and navigate to .apk file. Click it and tell the phone to install. Install will take about 30 seconds.

    Congrats... you now have best game available for Android. For Free!

    Afraid I don't know. I'm running it on 2.2 and it seems pretty much flawless. I'd give it a go on 2.1...

    thanks for this, but its telling me I need to uninstall apps to install it, so I assume its trying to install directly onto the phone and not run from sd card.

    Anyone know how much room I would need to free up to install ?

    'Ang about - I thought you saved the file to SD card and installed it from there, so it runs from SD card memory rather than phone memory...?
