Here’s an official video showcasing the features of the HTC Desire HD along with the new Sense UI and features on the new HTCSense.com cloud computing service.
There’s a lot to like about the Desire HD, like the 4.3in SLCD screen and the latest 1GHz Qualcomm 8255 Snapdragon processor with a dedicated Adreno 205 GPU capable of processing 41 million polygons/sec. There’s also a whopping 768MB of RAM to juggle multiple apps in the OS with.
With Dolby Mobile and SRS virtual sound built-in there’s no denying that the Desire HD is designed to be a media device but we find the omission of HDMI perplexing. Seeing how well executed HDMI out is on the N8, the Desire HD will find it difficult to match Nokia’s performance when it comes to outputting awesome audio and video on the big screen. And also, there’s only 1.5GB of on board storage, if you’re going to be totting lots of media content around, you’ll need more than that. Yes, there’s a MicroSD expansion slot but we’d like at least 8GB on board memory.
HTC is banking on DLNA wireless connectivity to make up for the lack of HDMI, we have our reservations with DLNA having tried it on the Samsung Wave but we’ll save our final judgment when we get review unit of the Desire HD.
Till then, enjoy the video after the jump.
