The HTC Desire Z already launched Stateside as the T-Mobile G2 - bringing Android back to its QWERTY roots and succeeding the first ever droid, the T-Mobile G1. Besides the sliding-out keyboard, Desire Z packs 800MHz Qualcomm MSM7230 processor, 512MB RAM, 1.5GB ROM, 5 megapixel camera with LED flash and 720p video recording.

In some regions, the HTC Desire HD and Desire Z should be available as soon as next month.

Today HTC also presented their new cloud-based service found at HTCSense.com. Basically it will allow you to backup your phone's content and even remotely lock or wipe your phone in case it gets lost or stolen. If you can't find where you left your phone, you can see it on the map and even make it ring at maximum level (even in silent mode) to ease your search efforts. All this thanks to the new HTCSense.com services. HTCSense.com will be free for all compatible devices.

Not sure why the HTC Z is only getting an 800Mhz processor for a brand new phone when HTC knows that Android 3.0 requires at least a 1Ghz processor - so 2.2 is the best it can ever have - not very future proof considering most places will offer it on...
