HTC Desire HD

Last updated: Nov 16th, 2010.

The HTC Desire HD is the big-screened successor to the HTC Desire, a device that took much of Europe by storm when launched in the spring of 2010. The Desire HD followed during fall of the same year, earning its title from a large 4.3-inch display, enhanced 8MP camera, and beefed-up hardware. 

The Desire HD, along with the concurrently announced Desire Z, was one of the first devices to feature a brand new version of HTC Sense with several key updates to the popular Android user interface. The Desire HD remains a strong contender for those outside of the US seeking a handset with a larger display perfect for viewing video content and plenty of storage to make it a media powerhouse.
