The popular in Europe HTC Desire handset is going to be heading to the US in August, HTC officially announced this morning via twitter:
The device will feature the same specs as the European version: 1Ghz Snapdragon processor and Android 2.1 with Sense, HTC's PR rep Ricky tells us.
The only caveat in this announcement is the carrier choice - Desire will be going to regional carriers only, which means the big 4 - Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile - will not be involved.
No details yet on the pricing or exact launch date.

Good news, AT&T customers – starting June 20, AT&T will begin selling its first HTC Android device, the Aria. A few days ago, they (accidently?) released a video showing the HTC “Liberty” being tested. At the time, we speculated that it might actually be the HTC Aria we’d heard about before. Turns out we were probably correct, as various news outlets have been receiving the Aria to play around with, and they look to be one and the same.
The phone isn’t quite as high-end as other recent HTC outings on other networks (such as the EVO or Incredible): it offers a 3.2” display running at 480 x 320, as well as a 5 megapixel camera (sans flash).

myTouch 3G Slide owners, we have some good news for you! If you've been itching to root your devices, now you can, thanks to Android hacker eugene373, who released his root instructions today.
The process involves booting into recovery mode, pushing the “update” to the phone manually, and installing the root. Users of the HTC Droid Incredible may recognize that “… it's the same root method as the HTC Incredible... I just added SU & fixed the script, plus figured out how to get it to write to system…”
Android hackers initially expected to have a root out for the phone’s June 3rd release, but it proved more difficult than they had anticipated to provide a bug-free solution.
