hmm... from the 2nd picture of Desire HD, does it mean that this phone is going to T-Mobile in the US? Desire Z may go to AT&T since T-Mobile is going to have Google G2 instead??

actually if you really looked at the note in the picture you are talking about you would notice a symbol which would make it very clear as to where this phone is headed

correction it has a cpu that can be clocked at 800mhz up to 1ghz. it's a new snapdragon that isn't necessarily downgraded to 800 mhz it's up to the company to set it to 800mhz or 1ghz.

Desire HD is the EVO4G for the european market and Desire Z is the Tmobile G2 for the european market also.

Actually the desire z has sense ui so it's not the same as the g2. The z also looks like the red and black htc phone that's been leaked a couple of times. I would love to see it on sprint with wimax and and a front facing camera.

To be more clear I meant the red and black qwerty htc phone on verizon.

the htc desire HD looks like the HD2 why didnt they just make the HD2 like the desire HD? its so annoying as for the desire Z it looks like a nokia phone with a htc logo a big chunk of wood dont like that one bit. the desire HD should have at least a 10 mp camera a 1.5 gig proccesor a 1.3mp on the front of the phone if not better spec.

LOL what world do you live in. Keep dreaming. THERe are NO 10 mp cameras on phones. Its VGA, 1.3, 2.0. 3.0, 3.2, 5, 8, and 12. A 1.5 ghz processor is NOT coming out until next year. You FAIL!

He clearly listed the megapixes choices with 12 being at the top and since the 14mp phone hasn't been released yet therefore it doesn't yet exist. Read comments before you reply, junior.

HHAHA I absolutely LOVE whe people use the term "FAIL" and in that same response they fail because they didnt read the original comment or went too fast coming up with a "you fail" response. oh gotta love it!

Doesn't it always seem like the interviewer/blogger from the website knows a lot more about the phone than the people hired to demo the actual phone from the MFG? :-)

Never before have I lusted after phones as much as I have lusted over the HTC phones! The HTC EVO 4G, the HTC Desire HD, and the HTC Desire Z. If I was filthy rich, I would have bought all of these plus the other HTC phones like Desire and Hero... and I would give them out as presents to family and friends and expand the market of the company over here in the Philippines. Nokia has the largest market share over here because it's the most commonly found phone throughout the country and if I hadn't done my research, I wouldn't have known what I was missing!

Damn, take a hacksaw to those cat claws before shooting a 'hands on demo'! HD looks good though.
