Online retailer suggests HTC will launch the Desire HD next week

23 Dec

Online retailer, Flipkart, is now displaying that the Desire HD will be available in India in the fifth week of December, which translates into next week! The Desire HD runs on Android 2.2 (Froyo) and has an 8.0 MP camera that shoots video in 720p resolution and a 4.3-inch display. Priced at Rs 27,499, the Desire HD could give the Samsung Galaxy S and virtually any high-end Android phone a run for their money.

On the specs front, the Desire HD has a 1 GHz processor, 1.5 GB of internal memory, 768 MB of RAM and supports 3G downlink speeds of up to 14.4 Mbps. It will also play pretty well with HTC’s online portal http://www.htcsense.com.

If Flipkart’s information is true, we would suggest you put off your Android smartphone shopping for a few days. Yup, the new Droid King in town is on his way!

Vodafone to launch HTC Desire HD and Desire Z in India

8 Oct

We had reported earlier that HTC was hosting a party on October 7 and we were hoping we would get to see some new Windows Phone 7 gear. But it seems that the event was just to announce the Asia Pacific launch of the Desire Z and the Desire HD. Now the good news, the two Android smartphones will be available in India pretty soon with Vodafone. It might give an impression that the devices would be locked to Vodafone, but our experience suggests that it is simply a marketing and branding tie-up and the devices would work across carriers. HTC has not put a date or price, yet.

HTC announces Desire HD and Desire Z Android superphones

16 Sep

HTC has announced two new Android superphones with the HTC Desire HD and the Desire Z. The Desire HD resembles the Evo 4G launched on Sprint earlier this year and comes with a 4.3-inch LCD display and an 8.0 MP camera. It carries forward the Legend’s unibody, aluminium design and runs on Qualcomm’s latest 1 GHz 8255 processor from its Snapdragon family. It also comes with a ‘fast boot’ option that boots the device within 10 seconds to quickly check mails or make calls. While we ain’t sure what it means, in all probability booting the device in this mode will offer limited functionalities.

The Desire Z, on the other hand, is actually what we earlier thought was the T-Mobile G2. It looks like the Nexus One but comes with a ‘pop hinge’ mechanism to reveal a QWERTY keypad. It has a 5.0 MP camera onboard that can shoot 720p HD videos. It is also powered by a Qualcomm chipset, this time a 7230 processor clocked at 800 MHz.
