HTC has created a number of innovative handsets. It created an award-winning smartphone with the Desire. It created two Windows Phone 7 handsets with the 7 Pro and the HD7. Now, they upgraded the Desire and came up with the powerful Desire HD.

The Desire came with a 3.7 inch capacitive touch screen. Its HD version now comes with a 4.3 inch touch screen that can display as much as 16 million colors. It has a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. On this display, you can enjoy high-definition videos and high-resolution photos. In addition, videos in high-definition will sound as good as they look. Thanks to Dolby Mobile and SRS virtual surround sound, you will get to enjoy your video’s audio in high-quality. This will enhance the excitement in movies and exhilaration in mobile 3D games.

Power is one of the key features of the HD version of the Desire. Both handsets come with 1 GHz Scorpion processors. Both smartphones come with Adreno dedicated graphics processing units. However, the HD comes with 205 GPU as opposed to the Desire’s 200 GPU. This simply means that this GPU is better at rendering even the most demanding graphics.

When it comes to camera power, the HTC Desire HD comes with a camera that is far superior compared to its predecessor. It comes with an 8 MP camera as opposed to a 5 MP camera of its earlier version. With all this power in its lens, you are sure to capture and record nothing but high-quality videos and photos.

The HD is all about high-speed internet. On its earlier version, you could download at 7.2 mbps and upload at 2 mbps. Now, the HD downloads at 14.4 mbps and uploads at 5.76 mbps. This is more than twice the speed that you have been used to. This will make downloading apps, uploading multimedia, and browsing faster than ever before.

There is also a difference in operating systems. The earlier version ran on the Android 2.1 OS (Éclair). The HD version of the Desire now runs on the Android 2.2 OS (Froyo). On the HTC Desire HD, you will enjoy an OS that is 2 to 5 times faster than its predecessor that makes use of less power. The Desire has never been this good.
