I have to admit that this was the first Android device that made me really start appreciating some of what Android can do.
The HTC Desire HD is a peacock among pigeons, strutting a massive 4.3-inch capacitive touch screen wrapped in a lightweight aluminum body. The screen offers a very impressive 480 x 800 pixel resolution, which means crazy-crisp text and images.
Powered by Android's 2.2 OS incarnation, and running at an impressive 1000 MHz processor speed, the HTC Desire HD is a powerhouse ready to take on anything you have to throw its way.
Oh, did I mention the fabulous 8MP camera? Yeah, yeah, and it has dual LED flash, auto-focus, face detection and Geo-tagging, so taking pictures and video is more fun than ever. Owning to its namesake, you can video record in 1280 x 720p, which is straight up HD quality.
Add a music player, a full, wonderful internet browsing experience, FM radio, one-touch access to thousands of apps via the Android Marketplace, built-in Facebook, YouTube and Twitter applications, and you have a very powerful device that can help you during your work day and enhance your social interaction.
And as the television pitchman loves to say, "But wait, there's more!". Packed into this sleek device is Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi, a 3.5mm headset jack, tethering capability, A-GPS and expandable memory via microSD. The HTC Desire HD is an excellent and well-built device that puts the user front and center. It gives you the power to do stuff! Nice job HTC.
