First HTC Desire HD (Ace) pic leaks out

And there it is, folks, a picture of what reportedly is the HTC Desire HD, which we've also seen referred to as the Ace and has already popped up in a Vodafone Germany inventory system. Sure looks like a mashup of the Desire and Evo 4G, doesn't it?

Anyhoo, the specs of this monster remain a 4.3-inch WVGA touchscreen, Android 2.2, an 8MP camera, 1Ghz processor, 720p video recording, 4GB of storage built in, and aluminum case, e-book reader, and all the other bells and whistles we've come to expect.

This one's expected for Europe sometime in October. [UWants via Android-HK] Thanks, Ricky!
