HTC Desire HD (Ace), 4.3-inch Android phone is coming soon

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.

HTC 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.

  1. That’s an exciting gadget that we should be waiting. But how does Android runs? Is it better than the Windows Mobile? Because I am planning to buy a windows mobile phone – to access my files in MS office. I’m also waiting for the Windows7 phone.

    • I was able to use both Windows Mobile 6.5 and an Android and I have to say that Android wins for me. Can’t say if it’s the same with Windows 7 because the new Windows Phone OS will be totally different.

    Can someone confirm when will be the release of the [ACE] in the Philippines? cant wait for this, haha

  3. Hazel Lyn Mallare says:

    According to HTC Philippines (located at The Block at SM North EDSA), the phone will be available around the third week of October with the estimated price of 37,000 Php. The wait is killing me! It’s the official release set up by HTC on Europe and Asia today, October 11, 2010.

  4. HTC engineer says:

    DEsire HD is already out in the market we released it last week in AU under Vodafone, we just also released HTC mozart (trophy) that runs under W7 and soon this december we will be releasing 5 more new Phones in the market.. so you better watch for it…

      Mga Ser,

      Since this thread is about Desire HD, before i post my question, please allow me to just rundown what’s been eating me these past few days…

      1. iOS vs Androd (i think i’m going for Android and most of you would agree)

      2. Samsung vs HTC (still an ongoing battle in my head)

      3. Desire HD vs EVO 4g (in case i would go for HTC)

      and now my question, na-release na po ba ang DesireHD jan sa pinas? and, any news if magre-release ba ng EVO 4G jan sa pinas?

      thanks a lot po.

      • desire hd is the 3G version of evo 4g. di kasi ginagamit ang 4g cellular network dito sa phones. kakalaunch lang ng desire hd kagabi, check our front page. sabi sa amin end of december pa sya lalabas.
