Desire HD and Desire Z

During its London event, HTC has officially announced its two latest Android Desire series phones, the Desire HD and Desire Z. The Desire HD is company's new 4.3-inch flagship packed inside an aluminum casing while the so called "business monster" QWERTY slider, the Desire Z, features HTC's new Z-hinge, and a 3.7-inch screen.

The full specs for the Desire HD include a 4.3-inch WVGA resolution Capacitive Touch screen with multi-touch, is powered by Qualcomm's 8255 1GHz processor, 8MP camera with dual LED flash and 720p HD video recording, 768MB of RAM, 1.5GB of internal storage and microSD card slot, Motion G-sensor, Proximity and Ambient Light sensors, Bluetooth 2.1, 802.11 bgn WiFi, standard 3.5mm audio jack and standard micro-USB port.

The dimensions of the Desire HD are 123 x 68 x 11.8 mm and it weighs 164 grams with a 1230mAh battery. As noted, it runs on Android 2.2 Froyo with HTC Sense.

The Desire Z on the other hand has a smaller 3.7-inch Super LCD WVGA resolution, capacitive touch screen, powered by 800MHz Qualcomm 7230 chip, 5MP camera with single LED flash and 720p video recording, 512MB of RAM, 1.5GB of internal storage, while the rest of the specs are pretty much identical to the Desire HD.

This one has 119 x 60.4 x 14.16 mm dimensions and weighs 180 grams with the 1300mAh battery. Unlike the Desire HD, this one features a rather good and decent slide out QWERTY keyboard and can be considered as the direct competiton to the recently announced Nokia E7.
