    I have a few questions about HTC desire, am very curious about this phone. I need a new phone and I would like to have one with android on it. Can you install other navigation software or are you tied to Google? And what is HTC Sense and what is the added value of this? Other than this it seems like a cool phone to me! Thanks!

    Yes you can install other navigation software. You are in no way tied to Google maps. Co-pilot is one alternative you would have to pay for it but at least your maps would be on board then.
    HTC Sense is an extra UI layer added over the top of the basic Android UI to add extra functionality and improve the user experience. most Android manufactures do this ( Moto blur, Samsung Touchwiz etc etc ) but HTC's Sense is generally considered the best. Having said that you can switch it off and replace with any number of alternates from the Android market such as Launcher Pro.
