The HD model now has a giant 4.3in widescreen, extra firepower in the camera department and the latest Android 2.2 OS out of the box. Not to mention some cool new treats from HTC.</p> <p>Although the Desire’s sleek frame, subtle curves and well made all-in-one metallic body remain intact, its mechanised soft keys and optical trackpad have been ditched in favour of four touch-sensitive keys.</p> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-pricing"><legend>Pricing</legend><div class="field field-type-number-float field-field-test-price"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> £0.00 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-ratings"><legend>Ratings</legend><div class="field field-type-hcmreviewrating-rating field-field-overall-rating"> <div class="field-label">Overall rating:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="hcmrating-default">10 stars</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>Review Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper brightcove-player-wrapper"> <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="http://admin.brightcove.com/js/BrightcoveExperiences.js"></script> <script src="http://admin.brightcove.com/js/APIModules_all.js"></script> <div class="brightcove-player"> <object id="myExperience-658030837001" class="BrightcoveExperience"> <param name="bgcolor" value="#000000" /> <param name="playerID" value="" /> <param name="playerKey" value="AQ~~,AAAAEgPmGlk~,Fzd-TvXcznw-P3piHaryQBMeIzWITldz" /> <param name="isVid" value="true" /> <param name="isUI" value="true" /> <param name="dynamicStreaming" value="true" /> <param name="@videoPlayer" value="658030837001" /> <param name="autoStart" value="" /> <param name="htmlFallback" value="true" /> <param name="includeAPI" value="true" /> <param name="templateLoadHandler" value="brightcoveTemplateLoaded" /> <param name="width" value="640px" /> <param name="height" value="360px" /> </object> <!-- This script tag will cause the Brightcove Players defined above it to be created as soon as the line is read by the browser.

But what's the Android flagship like in the flesh?</p> <p>Our sample's box was minimalist, to say the least. Just a paltry micro USB cable and a mains adaptor inside. Oh, and the Desire HD.  </p> <p>And here it is. First impressions? The bright 4.3in touchscreen is unquestionably the killer feature, and there are no issues with lag either despite the 800x480 resolution. </p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /news/phone/unboxing/unboxed-%E2%80%93%C2%A0htc-desire-hd </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/desire-hd/unboxed-%E2%80%93%C2%A0htc-desire-hd/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/desire-hd/unboxed-%E2%80%93%C2%A0htc-desire-hd/news#comments Desire HD HTC Tue, 19 Oct 2010 05:00:00 +0000 admin 15157 at http://www.stuff.tv HTC Desire HD pre-ordering begins http://www.stuff.tv/desire-hd/htc-desire-hd-pre-ordering-begins/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Locked into a two-year contract?

In fairness, they’ll give you 900 minutes, unlimited texts and 750MB of 3G data (including 5MB roaming data) in return. And you'll have a lovely new 4.3in touchscreen smartphone with an 8MP cam and all the trimmings. Not bothered? You can now grab an old-school Desire or Legend in “phantom black” or “brilliant white” respectively.</p> <p><strong>More stories on Stuff.tv</strong></p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /news/phone/stuff/htc-desire-hd-pre-ordering-begins </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/desire-hd/htc-desire-hd-pre-ordering-begins/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/desire-hd/htc-desire-hd-pre-ordering-begins/news#comments Desire HD HTC Wed, 06 Oct 2010 05:00:00 +0000 admin 15119 at http://www.stuff.tv HTC Desire HD and Z launch with more Sense http://www.stuff.tv/desire-hd/htc-desire-hd-and-z-launch-more-sense/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Full metal jacket?

But that’s only comparative. It has the same stylish aluminium body as the HD and it’s no slouch elsewhere – for a start, the rocker action that brings out the keys is in serious danger of stealing Nokia’s crown. And for another, it’s got a healthy spec sheet that takes in an 800MHz processor, 5MP cam (with AF, flash and 720p video) and a 3.7in WVGA capacative touchscreen.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /news/phone/stuff/htc-desire-hd-and-z-launch-more-sense </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/desire-hd/htc-desire-hd-and-z-launch-more-sense/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/desire-hd/htc-desire-hd-and-z-launch-more-sense/news#comments Desire HD HTC Wed, 15 Sep 2010 05:00:00 +0000 admin 15057 at http://www.stuff.tv HTC Desire HD with 4.3in screen appears http://www.stuff.tv/desire-hd/htc-desire-hd-43in-screen-appears/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Pics and video of HTC&#039;s new version of the Desire show its huge screen and more </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="440" height="300" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/1940103c8bli_0.jpg?1364403900" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="440" height="300" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/194020b8cbli_0.jpg?1364403900" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Leaked photos and video of HTC's new Android phone, the Desire HD, have appeared online courtesy of <a href="http://www.247android.com/android/htc-desire-hd-htc-ace-2632010.html" target="_blank">247android</a>.</p> <p>The Desire HD is rumoured to have a 4.3in screen (like the <a href="http://stuff.tv/Review/HTC-Touch-HD2-review/" target="_blank">HTC HD2</a>), which the pictures seem to support, and on the inside a 1GHz processor.
