Desire HD

HTC announced the Desire HD last week at an event in London. It's basically the global version of the Evo 4G, with some design tweaks (and no 4G, natch).

After the break is a video made by HTC to provide a closer look at the device. It shows off the hardware as well as some of the phone's best features, including:

  • Adobe Flash support
  • Home media streaming via DLNA
  • E-books
  • Cached maps

Check out the video for yourself after the break. [YouTube]

What the video doesn't show is the different Themes so that you don't have to have that same stupid curve doc on the bottom of the screen all the time, also and easier "and dare I say prettier" way to switch between "Scenes" . . .

Pocketnow has the ROM running on an HD2 . . . IN 3 separate videos

Neither the prior linked article nor the video comes out and states clearly whether this will run on at&t.

From my understanding the Desire HD is going to be the European version of your Evo, so chances are if you do get its gonna be a while away yet so probably no a&t for the time being...

I just went to and it gives you a pop-up that requires you to use a username and password, is everyone getting that? i suppose the page isn't ready yet?

Nope. Site wouldn't be up until the phones are released.... Says HTC

Old news, Androinica covered this video a week ago.

i sooooooo wish Tmobile was getting this. i think every carrier should have a device like this

likwidsoul says:

Yeah no 3g means no deal. For real if I want a phone with no 3g I will just switch to cricket since their 3g is spottier than at&t and T-Mobile. Plus its only 55 a month for an Android plan.

madnessJack says:

@likwidsoul - no 4G, because we haven't got coverage for it on this side of the pond. It'll have 3G for sure ;)

KenA says:

Where's the front facing camera??? ...big miss!

This is going to be magical. I can tell because they said so in the video.

OMG this video make me fell like mi Droid X is obsolete now hahaha

Still love the Evo! I'm sure all these software features will somehow make into some developers ROM for release on the Evo.
