HTC Desire Launching on Telus as HTC Triumph?

Mobile Syrup is reporting that the previously mentioned HTC Triumph to be launched on Canadian provider Telus is actually the HTC Desire.  If this turns out to be true, this is VERY good news for Telus customers.  Telus will also be the first North American carrier to feature the handset if this happens.

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

As of now, there is no price or launch date, but we will bring them to you as soon as they come.  So Canadians, what do you think of this handset?  Will you be buying one?
