When we went to the distributor of HTC phones last week to check out the HTC Wildfire, our guy there hinted that the next HTC phone that we should watch out for this year is the Desire HD.
The HTC Desire HD (HTC Ace in some parts of the world) is your Android (2.2 Froyo) version of the still-popular Windows Mobile-touting HTC HD2, or the GSM version of the HTC Evo 4G that sold well in America. I’m going to compare it to the HD2 because it is what’s available here.
Just like the HD2, the Desire HD will have a 4.3″ WVGA HD touchscreen and a 1GHz processor (Qualcomm instead of Snapdragon though). But that’s just about the striking similarities the two phones have. Other features that will make the Desire HD an instant hit aside from the Android 2.2 OS would be the 8 megapixel camera, 720p HD video recording and a 4GB internal memory (bigger than Evo’s 1GB).
So if you’re planning to splurge on a good Android smartphone this Christmas, better save up and wait for the HTC Desire HD. I have to say that it’s going to be a hot seller.
