At the same time that HTC officially announced the Desire Z they also unveiled the Desire HD (aka Ace), a high-end device powered by Android 2.2 and featuring a 4.3-inch touchscreen, 1 GHz processor, 768 MB of RAM, 1.5 GB of internal memory and an 8 megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording capability.
Specifications wise, the Desire HD should be one of the most (if not the most) powerful smartphones on the market. A combination of having the latest 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, a generous 768 MB of RAM and DLNA support for sharing media on a TV certainly places it at the front of the pack.
The HTC Desire HD will be available across major European and Asian markets from October 2010 with North America later on in the year. In Australia the phone will launch exclusively through Vodafone and Three in the coming months. Pricing and availability details have not yet been announced.
