    1. Without internet yes never tried without sin.

    2. Pdf yes already on phone, Excel yes with market apps.

    3. Oled screen does leave fingerprints yes.

    4. Personal preference but I think desire has more vivid colours than iPhone 4, also bigger screen and is only slightly less sharp than iPhone 4.

    5. Don't sinc myself but connected as a disc drive etc and seems easy. Hardly turn on my pc since getting desire lol.

    6. Yes in certain browsers or with market apps.

    3. All touch screens pick up finger prints. Breathe on screen, rub on T-shirt, clean again! ;)

    OMG :eek: My desire has it's own microfibre cleaning cloth and I won't allow it to be touched by anything else. Am I being overprotective :eek:

    No, mine does, as should everyone else's. Optical quality glass should always be cleaned with microfibre materials, and I see no reason to treat a phone screen differently. :)

    1. Yes.

    2. Yes, [pdf] Pdf Reader is preloaded. [excel] Quickoffice is preloaded. You can get Documents to Go in the market for editing both.

    3. The AMOLED screen does leave fingerprints.

    4. The AMOLED screen has brighter and vivid colours than iPhone 4 and HD2. It has darker blacks and brighter screen indoors, but quite poor in sunlight.
    However, the iPhone 4 has greater resolution.
    HD2 is just old. >_>

    5. Theres HTC Sync for syncing or you can just mount the MicroSD using the provided USB cable. Works like WinMo.

    6. Yes, using Yxflash or Rockplayer from teh market. Supports Xvid and DivX, mp4, mkv, rmvb video files.

    The Desire has an AMOLED screen...why are you calling it OLED? Some newer ones come with SLCD which seems to equal the AMOLED.
