I’m really loving HTC’s game at the moment. They’re leveraging off the success of the very popular HTC Desire with two augmented versions – HTC Desire HD and HTC Desire Z.
HTC Desire HD – More Than A Massive Screen
As the name of the HTC Desire HD suggests, it’s all about the multimedia display experience -the HTC Desire HD boasts a monster 4.3 inch WVGA LCD screen. For those who you who love watching movies and surfing the internet in widescreen on portable devices, this should be on your shopping list. While some of the innards replicate the HTC Desire like the 1GHz Snapdragon processor, other areas get an uplift: the HTC Desire HD has 1.5GB ROM, 768 RAM, 8 MP 720 HD camera with dual flash, Android Froyo 2.2 and faster 3G with the ability to achieve 14.4 Mbps download!
HTC Desire Z – It Has A Zee I Mean Keyboard!
You know if I didn’t love my iPhone 4 so much I’d probably have this as my next device. I think the HTC Desire is one of the best smartphones on the the market and now with the new HTC Desire Z having a four row QWERTY keyboard it makes it even more appealing, as I’m a road warrior who likes to type on his smartphone a lot (which is why I have a Mr.Gadget Bluetooth Foldable Keyboard). Amazingly, HTC Desire Z manages to maintain a slim form factor (only around 2mm thicker) even though it has this very functional keyboard. Weight wise, it’s still relatively light being only 45 grams heavier than the HTC Desire.
Like the HTC Desire HD, the Z also comes with better insides than the HTC Desire. It too features the faster 14.4 Mbps data download capability, new 800MHz Qualcomm 7230 processor, 5MP 720 HD flash camera, Android Froyo 2.2, downloadable maps and larger memory base (1.5GB ROM & 512 RAM). Superb!
I really hope I get to play with some units soon!
