HTC Desire heading to SoftBank, available beginning in late April

Japanese carrier SoftBank has recently announced that they will soon be offering the HTC Desire. Well, more specifically, they will be making it available sometime in late-April. As of now, SoftBank has not announced any pricing or plan details. But that aside, it looks like the Desire will not be crippled by a lack of, or a removal of features. The press release clearly notes that the Desire will feature the Android Market, Gmail, Google Maps and Google in general. And I have to add a sarcastic “thanks AT&T” because now we have to worry about which features will be removed and/or limited in Android phones. Anyway, here is to a successful Japanese launching of the HTC Desire.
