HTC Desire Z.JPGAlongside the HTC Desire HD handset, the company have also revealed the QWERTY-packing Desire Z smartphone.

The hardware keyboard kicks out on a little hinge, leaving the device more or less flat when it’s in use. It’s pretty comfortable, with all keys within easy reach without pulling a thumb muscle.

Specs wise you’re looking at a 800MHz Qualcomm MSM7230 processor, a 3.7-inch capacitive touchscreen display, 5MP camera with flash and 720p video recording, 512MB RAM and running Android 2.2 (Froyo).

It’s also got the new Sense UI, which pairs up with a dedicated website to offer data backup (or wiping if the phone’s security has been compromised) as well as moving all you files and contacts into the cloud.

The Desire Z is expected to hit stores in October, with Vodafone announced as the first carrier.
