WP7-based HTC Schubert and Froyo-loving Desire HD leak
We're still a few months away from the official Windows Phone 7 launch but a bunch devices based on it have already made their way to the cameras and then to the web. We are now looking at the next portion of live photos, featuring the WP7-running HTC Schubert and its Froyo-powered bro, the HTC Desire HD.
Speaking of the Desire HD, it is quite reminiscent of the WinMo-based HTC HD2. The Desire HD (a.k.a. HTC Ace) is said have an aluminum unibody (quite like the HTC Legend), to run Android 2.2 (a.k.a. Froyo) and to feature a huge 4.3" WVGA capacitive touchscreen. Reportedly, the device is powered by a zippy 1GHz Snapdragon processor and packs a promising 8-megapixel camera capable of shooting 720p HD videos.

The HTC Desire HD should also come with support for XviD video files out of the box and feature SRS Surround Sound equalizer. Another interesting feature the Ace should arrive with is the preloaded e-book reader. And, unsurprisingly, the Desire HD web browser will have Flash support. Here is the Desire HD posing for a short video:
The other rumored HTC device is the HTC Schubert smartphone which will apparently run Windows Phone 7 and will sport a fast Snapdargon CPU on board.

Its other features are still pretty much a mystery (save for the aluminum unibody design) but at least we have a short Schubert video to share with you:
Sadly, there is still no information on the official announcement dates or pricing of both devices.
No way it will have S-AMOLED... Samsung ih holding back on these displays, they're just for their top phones. Even more, new Desires don't even have usual AMOLED displays, they switched to SONY Super LCDs.
