HTC, today, announced the launch of their two latest phones. The HTC Desire HD and the HTC Desire Z.
The HTC Desire HD is essentially the rest of the worlds version of the HTC Evo 4G without the CDMA capabilities. The Desire HD packs an almighty punch with a 4.3″ LCD, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, an 8 megapixel camera with a dual LED flash and the ability to record 720p videos. The Desire HD is a multimedia powerhouse and with its oversized screen, will be greatly welcomed by those who enjoy watching movies on the move. The Desire HD is also built from a solid block of aluminium like it’s younger brother, the HTC Legend, which can only be a good thing.
The HTC Desire Z is HTC’s latest rendition of a phone with a QWERTY keyboard slider and based on the images floating around the web, it seems as though this will be one of the QWERTY keyboards to remember with decent spacing between the keys and a screen that shifts downwards when the keyboard is out so as not to get in the way when trying to type. The Desire Z features an 800MHz Qualcomm processor which, although isn’t as powerful as the Desire HD’s, is sure to pack a solid punch in processing power. Also included are a 5 megapixel camera with flash and 720p video recording.
Both HTC phones feature 7.2Mbps HSDPA and 802.11n Wi-Fi connectivity, as well as a 480×800 pixel resolution. One of the more interesting updates to the phone is the new updated HTC Sense experience with the HTCSense.com services. These will bring such features as backing up contacts, sms’s, etc as well as being to locate or wipe your phone remotely if it is stolen or lost as well as a couple other features which you can read up on in the HTCSense.com article coming up.
HTC have done well with the launch of these phones, and I look forward to seeing them hit the shelves in South Africa. I’m guessing they will hit our shores somewhere around late November to December, most likely before Christmas.
