HTC has been setting the pace among Android device vendors from the very beginning, with the launch of G1 two years ago. Sometimes other vendors like Motorola, and now Samsung, will leapfrog Taiwanese upstart. But that will last only a few weeks.
E.g, when original Motorola Droid come out, it was able to hold Android leadership crown for only couple of months, and then we got Nexus One. For the next generation devices, Motorola came up with Droid X and Samsung launched Galaxy S, leaving HTC Droid Incredible/Desire in the dust. Yes, I know about EVO 4G – but that’s a device with very limited availabilty.
Today HTC unveiled it’s next generation Android device – HTC Desire HD.
I’ve been able to get some hands on time with Desire HD at the HTC launch event in London today, and I’m impressed. Running on the new 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon chip, with 768MB of RAM, HTC Desire is so snappy and fast, it’s crazy.
Here’s a quick video overview of HTC Desire HD:
