A few days ago, we reported
that Vodafone Germany's computer system was showing that the carrier had inventory of both the HTC Desire Z and the Desire HD. The "Z" appears to be similar to the Desire, but with a side sliding physical QWERTY keyboard. The HD, also known as the HTC Ace, appears to be the more interesting handset of the two with a one-piece, all aluminum casing, a 4.3 inch screen and an 8MP camera. The Desire HD is expected to launch with Android 2.2 on board and a 1GHz Snapdragon processor under the hood. Other features include 720p video recording, an e-book reader and 4GB of memory. The picture of the device (an engineering prototype of the Hong Kong edition) reveals a fairly thin and sleek black slab, that when combined with the high-end specs, produces a rather highly desirable device that is expected to launch this October in Europe.
