HTC have this morning lifted the lid on their long-awaited HTC Desire HD handset. Basically an Evo 4G handset (minus the kickstand) it’s running Android alongside the latest build of their Sense UI, jam packed with cool new features.
But first the specs: it packs a 4.3 inch LCD capacitive touchscreen, rivalling the Galaxy S and it’s AMOLED for vibrancy. A 1GHz 8255 Snapdragon processor powers the show, with the phone also squeezing in an 8MP dual-LED flash camera, 720p video recording, Android 2.2, DLNA video streaming, Dolby Mobile, and HSPA+ data with 802.11n WiFi. It all comes wrapped in a solid aluminium casing.
The new Sense UI pairs up with the new HTCSense.com website, which moves all your data and contacts up into the cloud, accessible even when your phone is out of action. Clever security features such as data wiping, lost and found messages and even a less-explosive-than-it-sounds self-destruct button,which bricks the phone in case of muggings, all feature.
It’ll hit stores sometime in October, with Vodafone the first announced carrier.
Scroll down for the first hands-on pic with the device. We’ll also have a preview video to follow, so keep your eyes peeled for that one.
