HTC News Round Up: Straight from the London Event

If you have not had the chance to catch up all the latest updates and news from the HTC Event, here’s a quick round up of everything we have gathered so far.

First up, HTC is on the rise. It is generally well established that HTC has close ties with both Google and Microsoft, and as the Android operating system continues to become more and more spread out among smart phone users and with the upcoming launch of the Windows Phone 7 mobile platform, there is little doubt that the future of HTC is looking brighter and brighter with each passing day.

Two new Android handsets have been revealed and it looks like HTC is ramping up the Desire brand name. The HTC Desire HD and HTC Desire Z (also known as the HTC Vision) are both packing some serious hardware firepower. While no specific launch date has been given, Vodafone UK was quick on the draw to announce that the handsets would indeed be coming out this coming October.

It is believed that the two phones would be packing new core processors –allowing for speeds of over 1GHz. The HTC Desire Z is getting extra attention from a lot of fans thanks to the slide out QWERTY keyboard on the device.

The Taiwan based manufacturer also confirmed that they are also working on an Android tablet. So far, no specific details on the hardware specs have been given, but judging from the initial reports, it seems like the HTC tablet will not be supporting voice calls like the Samsung Galaxy S.

Another major announcement from HTC is the new Sense user interface. The system itself has been upgraded, giving a more modern look than usual. Viewing email and maps has become so much easier too. HTC also confirmed the opening of the official Sense website where users will be able to remotely access their phones in case they lose track of it.
