    latest Android OS.

    i stand corrected, although it still could be chinese clone, if you look at the details it has an analogue tv tuner and the accessories are not HTC ones thats a fake desire my friend. The cpu isnt the same either read the specifications....... as far as i am aware no desire ever came with an analogue tv tuner, a;so no cd is included with the desire, all the software is on the memory card. looking at the pics a bit closer where the earpiece is the desire has little silver ringlets in the holes that one does not, its all in the details........

    thats definately a fake.

    after reading a bit more about it it has dual sim (always a sign of a clone) a 533mhz cpu (desire has 1ghz) and the build quility are rubbish and itll never run android.

    Also if you look at the box it clearly shows it running Android and HTC Sense.

    Hope you get your money back.

    The optical trackpad looks all wrong. That'd be the only way I would have been able to tell from pictures alone.

    Description is the giveaway, what's a G7?

    The earpiece is wrong too. Also, if you look at another desire, the shape where the light metal meets the button panel is all wrong too.

    G7 is simply a desire. Its nothing to do with anything.

    Edit> oh and the LED appears to be in the top very left corner of the black screen surround, where on the desire, it is half way between teh corner and the logo.
