HTC announces Desire HD

HTC today announced the Desire HD, a new version of the Desire which is very similar to the EVO.

The "Desire HD" offers a 4.3" screen, an 8 megapixel camera with dual flash, 768MB RAM, 1.5GB internal storage and a 1Ghz processor. The Desire HD also features Dolby Mobile -- a new sound technology for mobile phones -- and HSPA+ data with 802.11n WiFi. In addition to all this, the Desire HD is created out of a solid block of aluminum, similar to the Legend which was released earlier this year. All of these features run ontop of the Android 2.2 operating system.


The Desire HD features Super LCD technology, and comes preloaded with the new Sense experience. The updated Sense experience features all new apps, as well as updated ones, including Unified Inbox, HTC Maps, Facebook integration improvements, and cloud services similar to that of MobileMe for the iPhone.

HTC also claims to have improved device launch time, claiming that with the new sense experience the device will boot in just 10 seconds.

The Desire HD will be available sometime in October in Europe and Asia, and will cost around £500 at launch. HTC also announced the "Desire Z" today, a lower end phone that sports a four row keyboard.
