HTC launches the Desire HD

High Tech Computer Corporation has launched its much rumoured Desire HD, with specifications superseding the company's former flagship HTC Desire handset.

This new HTC handset has been seen in various leaks online for some time, where it now appears all of the rumours and speculations were accurate.

The Desire HD has a 4.3-inch capacitive touch screen LCD display, a higher screen size than the 4-inch Samsung Galaxy S - only that handset has a Super AMOLED screen, with a much improved brightness and more vivid colours.

This mobile phone will be one of the first to arrive powered by the latest Qualcomm 8255 1Ghz Snapdragon processor, with the Desire HD being capable of 720p high definition video recording from its 8 megapixel dual-flash camera.

Android 2.2 will ship with the handset along with HTC's own overlay to the OS that has been enhanced, with improvements being seen around the capturing and the sharing of multimedia.

HTC has been selling a similar 4G handset in the USA called the Evo, where the UK now finally has a similar model.

The new HTC Desire HD has been noted to be arriving with mobile networks from October onwards, where Vodafone has already been mentioned as one of the carriers.
