Description
HTC has announced the Desire Z, an Android-friendly QWERTY slider. Like the T-Mobile G2, the Desire Z features a "pop-out" (don't call it a slider) QWERTY keyboard with user assigned keys and system-wide shortcuts that let you quickly launch your favorite apps. Around back you've got a 5 megapixel camera with flash that's HD video capable while an 800MHz Qualcomm MSM7230 processor pumps away efficiently inside with HSPA+ and 802.11n radios providing the data. Unlike the US G2, however, the Desire Z comes loaded with HTC's enhanced Sense UI and new HTCSense.com services.

Neither do I want you to try force me to give you my email address and phone number so that you can link me to friends and contacts, thank you. Actually, bugger off, I share and link when and how I want. Bottom line: a really excellent phone for phone hackers and remote working and easy connectivity. Did we mention it’s a bit bulky?
