Next to it’s upcoming flagship – HTC Desire HD, Taiwanese vendor is launching another high end Android handset – HTC Desire Z – in October.
And it’s a really welcome addition to Android phone line-up, which addresses one major lacking feature among non-U.S. Google superphones – physical QWERTY keyboard.
Yes, I know we have Motorola Milestone and Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro with QWERTY, but c’mon, original Droid/Milestone is so last year by now, and you can hardly call Mini Pro a superphone.
This lack of physical keyboards on latest Android handsets have been a point of major frustration to me as I pondered which of them to get for myself this summer. Hopefully, with HTC Desire Z, along with the upcoming Motorola Milestone 2, I can finally get the phone I wanted.
Last week I got a chance to play with HTC Desire Z for a bit, and I really liked the device. Here’s a short video overview of HTC Desire Z:
