HTC Desire HD

Android 2.3 Gingerbread Update Confirmed by HTC (sort of)

When asked by Marc Chacksfield of TechRadar wheather or not they'd be updating (specifically) their HTC Desire HD device to Gingerbread, HTC has stated they'd be updating a number of their devices. Does this mean that the Desire HD will be getting the update, or that because they didn't name it specifically, it'd be left out? Either way, "a number of devices" is exciting.

HTC Desire Z Spreads to Canada

Canadians running wild in their plaid boxer shorts and North of the Border themed Android Anticipation t-shirts is the scene in Canada today as Bell Canada announces that it will soon release the HTC Desire Z. This Desire is one of two we've had our hands on, clicking and flicking, and now all those folks up there above our heads will have the chance to rock around with them too. It's unknown how different this version of the Desire Z will be, if they'll be exactly the same as those available in the states or if the usual slew of complaints by abnormally disturbed customers will be rectified. Bell Canada can handle it, right?

HTC Desire HD unboxing [Video]

The HTC Desire HD is in the house, and it's been a while since we were this excited about an Android smartphone. Packing the same 4.3-inch WVGA display as the HTC HD2 and HTC EVO 4G, the Desire HD throws in the latest build of HTC Sense with numerous improvements, including easy DLNA streaming, a new Car Panel interface, enhanced GPS functionality and more. We wasted no time getting the Desire HD out of its box and slapping a SIM card inside, and of course we made sure there was a camera trained on us throughout. In our hands-on demo with this production HTC Desire HD you can see some of the initial changes over previous versions of Sense; meanwhile the hardware itself is slick and tactile, a solid-feeling block of aluminum that owes a lot to the shape of the Windows Mobile HD2. [vms 150c77bda2eda01ae484] The only usability fumbles we've found so far are the slightly tricky angle of the lock button and a difficult-to-replace battery door; otherwise the Desire HD fits nicely into the hand. We can't argue with performance, either, the 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor (and 768MB of RAM) keeping things flying along nicely. Meanwhile there's 1.5GB of app storage on hand, and a microSD card slot down underneath the bottom panel. Some of the most useful changes are the smallest, in fact, like the new app-switcher bar which has been added to the pull-down notifications pane, and which shows the last eight accessed apps. We'll be putting the HTC Desire HD through its paces to see how the Android 2.2 smartphone holds up in the real world. Until the full review, enjoy the unboxing and walkthrough video! [gallery]

Vodafone HTC Desire HD now won’t ship until October 22

October 14th came and went, with no sign of the Vodafone HTC Desire HD arriving as initially promised.  Now, the carrier's site has been updated to suggest the new Android 2.2 smartphone isn't expected to ship until October 22nd. There's no explanation for the smartphone's delay, but we're guessing it's a similar reason to the delay of unlocked handsets which means online retailers are having to wait until the end of the month before they get stock in.  More on the HTC Desire HD here.
