Last month, Taiwan-based mobile phone maker HTC Corporation announced the launch of two new mobile phones running under Google's Android operating system, namely the HTC Desire HD and the HTC Desire Z, and it appears that the former already started to arrive in users' hands, at least in the Netherlands.
The new high-end smartphone from HTC comes with one of the largest touchscreen displays an Android handset would pack, namely 4.3 inches, the same as the HTC EVO 4G sports.
According to a recent article on tweakers.net
, the first batch of HTC Desire HD
units was already shipped in the Netherlands, and the first users to pre-order the device reportedly received their units.
Moreover, it appears that some stores in the country already started selling the device, though it was not made available everywhere.
The Netherlands is among the first countries to see the new HTC Desire HD
available for purchase, though HTC announced last month that the phone would be pushed to the market in most countries around the world.
Powered by a new 1GHz Snapdragon processor, complemented by 768MB of RAM, the handset
can offer enhanced performance levels.
Not to mention that it complements this power with the said 4.3-inch touchscreen display, which boasts a 800 x 480 pixels resolution.
To make things even more appealing, HTC
packed an 8-megapixel photo snapper on this device, with LED flash and HD 720p video recording capabilities.
The phone comes with a microSD memory card slot, with an 8GB card included in the package.
According to tweakers.net, it is rather interesting to see that HTC already started shipping the high-end device, especially since both Desire HD and Desire Z
were said to have been delayed to the end of October.
Some retailers in the UK confirmed the fact that they would receive the two smartphones later than originally expected
, but chances are that not all countries were affected by this delay, with the Netherlands being among those who weren't.
