Not wanting to be left behind by Nokia, HTC has also just unveiled their latest offerings, the HTC Desire HD and the HTC Desire Z.
Consistent with previous reports, the HTC Desire HD packs a 4.3-inch touchscreen, 5-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash setup, 720p video recording, WiFi (b/g/n), and HSPA+ connectivity powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor with Android 2.2 as its OS complete with a new and enhanced version of the Sense UI overlay. It’s housed in a unibody aluminum body, and can be considered as the international version of the HTC Evo 4G.
The HTC Desire Z, meanwhile, comes with a slower 800MHz processor and lower rated 5-megapixel camera. On a good note though, this baby still comes with HD video recording, WiFi (b/g/n), HSPA+, Android 2.2, and the new Sense UI, and ups the ante with a larger 3.7-inch touchscreen, a full QWERTY keypad, and a new “pop hinge” mechanism to open it as opposed to the traditional slider. As you probably noticed, this is basically a rebranded version of the T-Mobile G2 meant for international release.
HTC also announced HTCSense.com, a new service where users can easily back-up and restore their phone contents and settings over-the-air while on the go. Users can also use this service to locate a lost phone, remotely lock it, or send an SMS to the phone giving the person who found it details on how to return it. It'll also offer wallpaper downloads, plug-ins, and other treats for a more personalized experience. This site isn't up yet, and will probably go live once these new Android phones hit the public.
No word on the pricing of the Desire HD and Desire Z, but it is confirmed that HTC Desire Z will be debuting in the North America market later this year. We’re not sure about the HTC Desire HD, but we’re certainly hoping it'll also find its way to the US and Canada.
