HTC Announces 2 New 'Desirable' Android Phones

First off we've got official confirmation of the rumored Desire HD, which is similar to the EVO 4G. Packing a 4.3-inch display, this Froyo device features a 1GHz 8255 Snapdragon CPU; an 8-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash and 720p video recording; and HSPA+ data with 802.11n WiFi, 1.5GB of memory and 768MB of RAM. The device continues on the unibody design we've seen with the HTC Legend and is crafted out of a block of solid aluminum.

The Desire Z is slightly smaller, with a 3.7-inch Super LCD touchscreen and a pop-out, spring-loaded QWERTY keyboard. As for the guts, you're looking at an 800MHz Snapdragon, along with 1.5GB of internal memory and up to 32GB via MicroSD. There's a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash and 720p video. It ships with Android 2.1, but a Froyo roll-out is promised for later in the year.

Both phones will hit the European and Asian markets first, and the Desire Z will hit North America later this year.
