As if the smash success that was the original wasn’t enough, HTC has made official the Desire Z and Desire HD. Both handsets feature aluminum construction but each offer something unique. The HTC Desire HD — which has been floating around as the HTC Ace in leaked screen shots — features a 4.3-inch 480×800 SLCD display, 8MP camera and dual flash capable of 720p HD video capture, and Android 2.2 with a new HTC Sense. This monster packs some hefty specs including a 1GHz processor, 1.5GB of internal storage, and 768MB of RAM. The phone features radio support for HSPA/CDMA and quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE.
The Desire Z is strikingly similar to the T-Mobile G2 with its “pop-out” keyboard and assignable shortcut keys. The phone gets an 800MHz processor, Android 2.2 with Sense, and a 3.7-inch 480×800 SLCD display. 512MB of RAM, 1.5GB of internal storage, and a 5MP autofocus camera with 720p HD video recording rounds this one out.
If you’re itching to get your hands on either of these bad boys head on over to AndroidForums and chat it up with like-minded folk in the HTC Desire Z forum and the HTC Desire HD forum. Both handsets will be available sometime in October around Asia and Europe. More coming from the HTC event as the day rolls on!
