The first “national” presentation of htc Desire HD and htc Desire Z in Russia - photo report

On Monday evening, in Moscow, in the store and customer support center - htc Care - the first in Russia presentation of two new android flagships of the company: htc Desire HD and htc Desire Z. This presentation was significant for two reasons. Firstly, this is, as has already been said, the first in Russia presentation of new phones, and secondly, only bloggers, followers of twitter htc were invited to this presentation. But, of course, not all, but only the first 25 people who won the contest, which was held on Twitter.

The competition was simple: you had to answer one simple question regarding new products. The one who closely monitors the company's products, will answer the question without hesitation. And the one with whom newtwitter is connected can follow the answers (replicas) to the question and thus cheat. ;) There is another good news, such presentations will be repeated. And not sometime, but in the very near future - in the next two weeks several more similar presentations will take place, invitations will still be played out on Twitter.
Under the cut - a photo report and a small exclusive video showing the principle of the new feature - htc Likes. All photos are clickable.

The presentation of the htc product trainers was Vyacheslav and Elena.

At the beginning, the presenters talked a lot about the updated htc Sense shell and new “desires”.
I think that everyone is already aware of the main improvements of the shell and filling devices, so I will list only the "very-most":


Small video demonstration of htc likes. Exclusive short video.

Elena and Vyacheslav not only talked about the new Sense chips, but also showed the functions of the updated shell. On the laptop was installed some kind of proprietary software htc, which in real time shows everything that happens on the display of the smartphone. In theory, this program can greatly help developers to make a video, but whether it will be bundled with Sense sdk or not is unknown.

Someone is watching a presentation, and someone is choosing a new smartphone.

During the presentation, htc care continued to work as usual. Anyone could login.

Checking the face recognition function of a smartphone camera.

After the introductory part was completed, it was possible to get acquainted with the novelties on the spot, turn them in their hands and check everything that the presenters were talking about.

That same laptop with the same software. It was not possible to identify the software, and the htc employees did not disclose its names.

Htc desire hd

You could touch htc desire HD and htc Desire Z. Only two phones were available for the “tests” - one HD and one Z. More attention was attracted, of course, by Desire HD.

He attracted a lot of attention.

A lot of attention. This phone squeezed to the last.

The screen is large, 4.3 (480x800), superLCD. But how he will behave in the sun and how long the battery lasts is the question.

When the screen is turned off at the Desire HD, you can see the navigation grid. When the backlight is on, the grid is invisible. Unpleasant

At the bottom of the device is 3.5 mm audio jack, microUSB and microphone hole.

On the left you can see the volume rocker and the battery cover.

The right edge of the phone is smooth, like a baby's bald head.

Behind - a dual LED flash, a big eye 8-megapixel camera with autofocus and a microphone for recording sound. It is known that the camera was not of the best quality on htc Desire, I would like to hope that HD has a better situation with the camera.

Under the bottom cover are slots for a SIM card and a memory card.

The battery in Desire HD is hidden in the same place as in the HTC Legend - under the case. Therefore, you can forget about the extended-capacity battery. It is sad. If autonomy is important, then you can buy an external USB battery. But, as a rule, finding an external battery with the required output power is not always easy.

htc Desire HD at the moment - the most sophisticated smartphone companies.
Competitors - Samsung Galaxy S, which, I hope, will fall in price after the release of Desire HD. In addition to galaxy there is Acer stream or Google Nexus One. And the usual htc desire should not be forgotten.

htc desire z

The second novelty is the “Z-slider” htc Desire Z. When the device unfolds, it somewhat resembles the letter Z.

I think Desire Z is much more interesting than Desire HD. Now you can’t surprise anyone with a tricky phone, but there are very few good qwerty sliders on android now on the market.

At first glance, Desier Z is quite nothing.

But what will happen in reality - only experience of use will show. For a couple of minutes of dating to understand something completely is very difficult. In the photo - the final version of the Russian keyboard localization smartphone. Screen - 3.7 ", superLCD.

The letter sic! That same letter Z, even with something similar. At the top there is a power key and a 3.5 mm audio jack.

On the right is a camera button and a lever that is used to remove the back cover.

On the left is the volume rocker and micro-usb connector.

Below is a microphone hole.

Behind - a five-megapixel camera with autofocus and flash.

With competitors not a lot. I remember only motorola Milestone, Highscreen Zeus from Vobis and XPERIA X10 mini pro.

Here is a brief and everything that was on the event. At the end, all the guests were given a package with gifts: a mouse pad, a notebook, a htc branded key ring, a branded pen, an advertising booklet in the style “Our phones are the best, buy only them” and for “sweet” rubber htc Desire.
Package, with gifts, unfortunately, I lost somewhere at home. Therefore, the photo, alas, no.

Unfortunately, during the presentation it was impossible to communicate with the devices more closely, so the report indicated mainly what the presenters were talking about. That is - some advantages. I really hope that the samples of htc Desire HD and htc Desire Z will fall into my hands to write about them for Habr in more detail, to indicate all the pros and cons.
