HTC Desire Z

The HTC Desire Z, also known as the Vision, as well as the HTC Desire HD, formerly known as the Ace, are set to be released soon. HTC is holding a special event on September 15, most likely to introduce its new lineup of phones. 

Online store mobile.co.uk has begun displaying the new Desires, sort of. They're shown in silhouette, there are no specs listed, and "prices have not yet been confirmed." It's likely what we're looking at here is a retailer looking to get ahead of the pitch, not a formal declaration that the phones are on their way. (That said, we're pretty confident that the phones are on their way.)

As for those specs, however, here's a recap of what we think is known:

Desire Z:

  • 3.7-inch screen 
  • 480 x 800
  • Android 2.1 (Eclair)
  • QWERTY keyboard
  • 1GHz Snapdragon processor

Desire HD:

  • 4.3-inch screen
  • Android 2.2 (Froyo)
  • 8mp camera
  • 4GB internal memory
  • 720p video capture
  • 1GHz processor

Two strong Android phones, these are great follow ups to the original Desire, another great device. [HTC Source]
