The 4.3″ HTC Desire HD is a behemoth. Since the EVO 4G was announced earlier this year for Sprint, GSM users have been clambering to get their hands on the gorgeous device. Alas, because of Sprint’s proprietary CDMA network, the phone will not work outside of the United States.
Months later, the Desire HD was announced for European markets (900/2100Mhz bands) with boosted specs, an updated version of Sense UI and a new lease on life.
Fast forward to this month, when Bell recently released the other formerly European-only Desire Z, people started wondering whether its large-screened cousin was going to be released.
Today I was registering my Desire Z on HTC’s new Sense portal at htcsense.com and came across the above drop-down menu for Canadian users, all but confirming the device’s pending announcement for Canadian markets.
Seeing as how Telus and Bell have been swapping high-end Android device releases lately, it’s only likely that Telus will have a go at the Desire HD after Bell got the exclusive rights to the Desire Z.
This, however, is not confirmed, and we’ll have to see in the coming weeks as more information is made available.
The full specs of the Desire HD are:
-4.3″ 800×480 WVGA screen
-1.5GB ROM, 768MB RAM
-1Ghz Snapdragon QSD8255 processor
-8MP Camera with LED flash
-Android 2.2 Froyo
