HTC Triumph for Telus actually a branded Desire?

Telus may be 1st N American carrier with Desire

The previously mysterious HTC Triumph for Canadian provider Telus is actually be the Desire geared to the North American market, a scoop today uncovered. It would be exactly the same as the reference design save for the HSPA-based 3G bands needed for Telus, which would also let it work on other Canadian carriers and AT&T in the US. Any software changes weren't detailed by Mobile Syrup, but Telus has usually left phones like the Hero and Milestone with their built-in apps and UI.

The Triumph would most likely ship sometime in July or August. It doesn't have pricing, but Telus has never crossed past $200 on contract pricing for Android phones so far.

HTC's original device is largely a carrier-friendly version of the Nexus One, with the same 3.7-inch AMOLED screen, 1GHz Snapdragon and 5-megapixel camera. Its chief differences are an optical trackpad instead of the trackball and the presence of the Sense UI layer on top of Android 2.1.
