Over the last twelve months, we’ve seen that smartphones with largish screens have been a hit with consumers. Two recent examples that stand out are the HTC HD2 and Samsung Galaxy S. This is why we also think that the HTC Desire HD will sell like hotcakes in Australia.
Earlier in the week we talked about how HTC recently launched the HTC Desire HD along with its sibling device with inbuilt keyboard, the HTC Desire Z. Out of the two I believe that HTC Desire HD will have a broader consumer appeal just for the fact that more people will want a bigger screen than an onboard QWERTY keyboard.
Below you’ll see a video that gives you more insights into the HTC Desire HD. Before jumping there though, as a recap of its rich multimedia capabilities, here is the summary list of the HTC Desire HD‘s juicy features:
