Only now I see. This phone does not have HDMI ! ! ! One will have to resort to DLNA interface quality to send videos to a display/tv. What a f-up. Nokia's N8 looks more and more attractive :-)
That is marketing hype more then anything als. Sorryericsson is a dying company. 3 quarter results are just in and they did not reach the envisaged target once again ! They only managed to sell 10million handsets for the ENTIRE quarter ! ! ! They have become a insignificant role player by now. Alcatel managed to sell more :-) Their market share is well below 3% now. The camera sensor has lots of megapixels but is the size of a peanut. And very very expensive/overpriced - usual thing with all Sony products nowadays.
Anonymous, 15 Oct 2010Does desire HD has Tv-out functionality Thanksyes HTC Desire HD has DLNA. So you can share your media to your tv.
rayz, 15 Aug 2010Not much different from the Desire...and in my opinion....with 4.3 inches....just abit too chunky.Its a good size, think about gingerbread ...
Heng, 15 Oct 2010Can the flash be turned on anytime? It will be very useful if it does like Sony Ericsson.in the android store there is an app called "flash light" and on the normal desire it turns the flash on so i wouldnt see why it wouldnt
as far as i know
the desire HD don't have the S-LCD
because right now i am studying in taiwan
they said that right now there are no such size S-LCD
Can the flash be turned on anytime? It will be very useful if it does like Sony Ericsson.
Let's be faire. The old Snapdragon + the power hungry Android and a weak battery = you have to carry the charger with you where ever you go :-(
Now that HTC HD has a choice of OS, which is a better OS for social application plus general browsing the net. Android or WM? I`m on You tube and Facebook a lot. Found both these with WM 6.5 on Omnia 2 really poor, hangs alot!
Now intend to upgrade to HTC HD. WM7 or Android 2.2 perform better for social
htc2010, 13 Oct 2010hi all, is this the highest-end htc phone at the moment?Yes, it's the highest end phone HTC has to offer and infact is the Best Configuration mobile available for Android.

The N8 comes with Dolby Digital Plus surround sound so the comparison to the Desires HD Dolby Mobile & SRS is about equal.
It has 16GB storage space built-in which combined with a 32GB can have upto 48GB.
The ARM Cortex Processor is backed up by a Graphics Accelerator which should be fine for the N8.
It has an TV-Out and HDMI port though the HD does have DLNA, not sure if N8 has that though.
The camera will probably be the best we've seen on the current market.
If you're going to be answering a question at least make a fair comparison for them.
Both phones in their own right are very good, for me personally I'd go for the Desire HD as I'm sticking with the Android OS (and my current HTC Desire) for now but it comes down to whats more important to the user, both have their advantages and disadvantages.

Android is the BEST OS now. They could have problem with Meego next year. Bada could be a big competitor too...
I'm planning to buy this phone, but I just wanna make sure it has a lanyard hole... does anyone know?
Labrador, 14 Oct 2010Ok. No front camera,no hispeed bluetooth. How about the fm transmitter? Pleeease answer YES . ... moremighty N8? you mean N8 for No No No No No No No Never?
you know, bluetooth often used for simple data transmitting like wireless handsfree. but if you want to compare Desire HD with "The all mighty N8", you'll find nothing from "The all mighty N8" that can beat HD.
- 480 x 800 pixels, 4.3 inches against N8 360 x 640 pixels, 3.5 inches
- Dolby Mobile and SRS sound enhancement against nothing to N8
- 1.5 GB Rom; 768 MB RAM against N8 256MB RAM, 512 MB ROM
- Qualcomm Snapdragon QSD8255 1 GHz processor against N8 ARM 11 680 MHz processor
This is a great monster. and you only thinking about bluetooth 3.0? Fm Transmitter? are you gonna make a broadcasting station or something?
Ok. No front camera,no hispeed bluetooth. How about the fm transmitter? Pleeease answer YES . . . Otherwise you force me to go for the mighty N8.
htc2010, 13 Oct 2010hi all, is this the highest-end htc phone at the moment?Yes it is in Europe. The only equivalent right now is the Evo 4G in the US, but I think this one might have a better chip(?) Don't quote me on that but I think the SnapDragon in this is more advanced.
