Always a leader in new implementations

First I was looking at the Desire HD but it just was 0.3" too big to nicely fit in my pocket and the Desire Z looks absolutely perfect.
if only it were a little bit thinner, for the rest this phone is all I could ever wish for

HTC is so good at making smart phones.
look the power of processor
From a business perspective the Desire Z seems to meet all my needs. The fact the Z doesn't have front camera is of no concern to me as I fail to see the benefit as a business tool. My only concern is if Companion Link for Android will allow me to synchronise my ACT! CRM with the device. The other question pending is, do upgrade to this device when available or continue to wait until Phone 7 is released as a comparison.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2010None of the HTC Phones have front Camera. I am actually surprised. i have it on iPhone and I u... moreI can only speculate the reason to not include a secondary camera. Definitely it would add more weight, size and cost to the phone. Although I have no use for the secondary camera now, I cannot help but feel I might need it in a year or two.
I'm not in a market for a phone right now. Maybe next year some time. Perhaps, by then it would become clearer whether or not I really need a secondary camera.
I currently have Fring on my smartphone, but only really use it for MSN Messenger on occasion. I only ever tried videocalling once and that is to my wife's PC in the same room just to see if it works. It doesn't work now since Fring and Skype is no longer talking to each other.
PASA, 04 Oct 2010BAD NEWS: this phone does not upgradable to ANDROID 3.0 (PROCESSOR is too weak)remember google never said tht there we required specs... they said those rumours wer false, and a phone like this will hardly not be compatible with 3.1... the processors is 800mhz yeah but better than the present 1st hen 1GHZ processors
PASA, 03 Oct 2010BAD NEWS: this phone does not upgradable to ANDROID 3.0 (PROCESSOR is too weak)not so because this uses a second generation Snapdragon processor so its the equivalent of the old first generation processor used in the HD2 and original Desire
Anyone know if the Desire Z is coming to Vodafone in the UK? Rather this than the HD which whilst nice, does not have the keyboard or camera shutter release.
PASA, 03 Oct 2010BAD NEWS: this phone does not upgradable to ANDROID 3.0 (PROCESSOR is too weak)Processor is too weak ? you crazy man ! This phone is the strongest phone in the market
PASA, 03 Oct 2010BAD NEWS: this phone does not upgradable to ANDROID 3.0 (PROCESSOR is too weak)Dude, Froyo 2.2 has barely seen daylight and you're complaining about this phone not being compatible with the next coming OS??
I'm buying this phone because I want to use it with Froyo 2.2, the OS for which it has been made for.
If I buy a 3.0 phone when it's there, I will buy a phone which is optimized for it, and not a one year old phone who just barely meets the spec demand (like htc desire hd for example)
PASA, 03 Oct 2010BAD NEWS: this phone does not upgradable to ANDROID 3.0 (PROCESSOR is too weak)Upgrade to 2.2 gave us Adobe Flash 10.1, what will 3.0 give us, is it something we really want or is it just general prestanda improvements?
Anonymous, 03 Oct 2010Because in past you could not use front camera like VOIP on Wi-Fi or 3G. Now you can with no c... moreOf course you could.
I don't know where you are but in many countries we've had video calling for well over seven years and in some countries longer.
I've used it with people with different phones and on different networks and it's simple and has zero set-up.
