Overview of HTC Desire Z

THIS HANDSET HAS NOW BEEN DISCONTINUED. THE LATEST HANDSET IN THE DESIRE RANGE IS THE HTC DESIRE C.

Created for mobile users who like to be in constant communication and benefit from the inclusion of a QWERTY keyboard. The HTC Desire Z brings the convenience of an integrated keyboard without losing any of the other features that are required within a modern Smartphone.

With the Android 2.2 (Froyo) operating system and benefitting from the enhanced HTC Sense interface the HTC Desire Z is a powerful mobile product which is simple to use. It enables you to keep in contact with all your business contacts and friends on one device.

The Android operating system can be customized to your own individual requirements. Download new apps directly to the Desire Z from the Android Market and make it your own.

We all need to keep in contact and the HTC Desire Z ensures that this is simple with its fast 3G/HSPA connectivity and WiFi b/g/n. It brings a vibrant and responsive web browsing experience to mobile users. The Z-slider QWERTY keyboard is a convenient solution for composing emails, messages and updating social network updates. Making the HTC Desire Z the ideal companion to any mobile users who are constantly accessing social accounts and keeping in contact.

There is no need to worry about storing your media as the HTC Desire Z benefits from 1.5GB of internal storage. It provides plenty of space to store your favourite photos, videos or music, with additional storage being available via the SD 2.0 compatible microSD slot.

Having all your favourite photos and videos with you is great, but you need a quality display to view them. The HTC Desire Z excels at this with a 3.7 inch touch screen that has resolution of 480 x 800, bringing you photos and videos to life.

"Perfect size, fits nicely in my hand. Feels solid and looks it too. Touch UI is very responsive and moving around the views is quick. The keyboard is the draw card for me and after 2 months usage I hardly every use the screen k/b. Battery life isn't a problem for me, love my phone."
