HTC Desire HD

Mobile
Hi, I'm Kent German, senior editor for CNET.com. I'm here at CTIA Fall 2010 in San Francisco and I wanna show you the HTC Desire HD. This is more or less an international version of the HTC Evo 4G so it's gonna be available in Europe and Asia. You can probably get it unlocked here in the US if you like but it's not available with a US carrier. On the whole, though, you do see a little bit of the Evo's design. It's about the same size for it. It's got a 4.3-inch screen. It's got a similar profile. You won't find that kickstand in the back like we saw on the Sprint phone but you do have the protruding camera lens and then some of the panels are different. You can remove this and the SIM card's there. You can remove this side and the battery pops out. It does have a nice feeling in the hand. Yeah, some people might find the phone a bit big. I don't necessarily mind that 'cause I like that big touchscreen that is very colorful. It's very bright. You get up to seven home screens so you can customize those as you wish with the normal Android fashion. This is running the latest version of HTC Sense so that, of course, is HTC's interface. It's over Android a little bit. It doesn't really interfere with Android too much. It doesn't throw down to the menus, don't really change how they look but it is a nice way to get a little of a customization to the phone. Overall, the phone does have most of the Android features you'd expect. It's gonna have Bluetooth, it's gonna have productivity features, all the Google applications, GPS. It does have the 8-megapixel camera, again, there's that camera lens and there's a flash next to it. The Desire HD also runs Froyo, that's the latest version of Android OS so that's Android 2.2. So pretty powerful phone built in. As I said, it's similar to the HTC Evo 4G, but with a few refinements and this phone is primarily available outside the United States. I'm Kent German and this is the HTC Desire HD.
