HTC loves them some Android phones and just outed two somewhat brand new handsets at a London event. But no surprises here. You already know these phones. The Desire HD is a re-packaged EVO 4G and the Desire Z is an HTC Sense-enabled G2.
The Desire HD packs a 4.3-inch LCD upfront with an 8MP camera with dual-LED flash around back. Inside resides a 1GHz 8255 Snapdragon CPU, HSPA+ data, 802.11n wireless, and Dolby Mobile. However, it’s not an exact EVO 4G clone. Nope, this boy is made out of a solid block of aluminum. Europe and Asia can expect it to drop sometime in October.
The Desire Z packs nearly the same hardware as the G2, but is clearly aimed at a different demographic. Where the G2 is said to be a pure Android experience, the Desire Z comes loaded with HTC’s enhanced Sense UI and a bunch of new online goodies from the just-launched HTCSense.com service. Inside, there’s a 800MHZ Qualcomm MSM7230 CPU, along with HSPA+ and 802.11n radios. A 5MP camera with flash is around back and a pop-down keyboard serves as the data entry device. Just like with the Desire HD, the Desire Z should hit the appropriate European and Asian markets this October.
