Amazon leaks HTC Desire HD

Amazon leaks HTC Desire HD

The arrival of the HTC Desire HD is clearly drawing closer, after online retailer Amazon included the upcoming smartphone in its catalogue.

HTC is expected to officially reveal the Desire HD on the 15th of September in London, but Amazon this week jumped the gun and revealed that the unreleased smartphone will sell for £415 SIM-free.

The listing was only live for a short while before being retracted, presumably at the request of the manufacturer, but it gives perhaps the clearest indication so far that the Desire HD is less than a month from launch.

The sequel to the best-selling Desire packs an appealing array of features that allow it to better its predecessor in almost every way, including a 4.3-inch touchscreen and version 2.2 of Android.

News of Amazon's leak comes amid rumours that the Desire HD is the European edition of the Evo 4G which launched in America earlier in the year.

The rebranding is believed to due to the fact that there are no commercial 4G networks in Britain.

The Desire HD is also believed to have had the Evo's superfluous WiMAX connectivity removed.
