From the forum:
Today at the Mobile World Congress, HTC announced the release of three new smartphones. The Legend, HD Mini and Desire. This should not be a surprise as the HTC roadmap was leaked a long time ago.
16 February 2010

The Legend and Desire are Android devices while HD Mini is running on Windows Mobile 6.5. HTC also promised several more handsets running Windows Mobile 7 later this year.

The HTC Desire is should not be a stranger to those possessing a Google Nexus One. As it is HTC that's manufacturing the Nexus One. Hardware differences is said to be the optical joystick on Desire instead of the trackball found on Nexus One. Desire has a 3.7 inch AMOLED capacitive WVGA display. And it is running on Android OS 2.1. HTC Sense which is HTC user experience are running on top of the operating system on all three devices.
