ID4me is an internet service that enables its users to log in to many different internet services with one account. This is also known as "single sign on".
Unlike existing global single sign on solutions like the ones from Google or Facebook, ID4me does not track and analyze the internet surfing habits of its users. ID4me will make sure that the surfing habits stay secret.
Also, ID4me does not belong to an enterprise. It is an open standard that is maintained by a nonprofit organization. Anyone who wants to can participate. This way the users can chose freely between different ID4me providers and can also change the provider anytime.
HTC's Desire has, within the last few days, made great strides on its way to US Cellular, 3UK, and Australia's Telstra. According to Phandroid and Telstra's website, the Desire will be available for free to subscribers of a 2-year contract at $85 per month.
The plan that comes with the advertisment is pretty meager in terms of the amount of data available. Androinica reports that the “release does mark Telstra as the exclusive carrier for the Desire in Australia.”
This announcement comes after the upcoming addition of the Desire to US Cellular in the summer and 3UK receiving 2 versions of the phone. Who knows where this phone will end up next?
HTC Desire specs:
3.7” AMOLED touchscreen
576 MB RAM
