Three punts big-screen HTC Android phone

Desire HD, anyone?

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Three has got its mitts on HTC's big-screen Android 2.2 smartphone, the Desire HD.

The handset's star feature is its 4.3in, 480 x 800 capacitive touchscreen, but it also has an 8Mp autofocus camera on the back with a pair of LED flashes and a 720p HD video recording capability.

HTC Desire HD

It has a 1GHz CPU, but only 1.5GB of storage - if you want more you'll have to plug in a Micro SD card.

Basically, this boy is the new HTC HD7 with Android on board instead of Windows Phone 7.

Connectivity? HSDPA 3G, 2.4GHz 802.11n and Bluetooth 2.1. You get GPS too, and HTC's Sense UI to make Android a little more friendly to use.

The Desire HD is available on Three for £40 a month on The One Plan with 2000 any-network minutes, 5000 Three-to-Three minutes, 5000 texts and 1GB of data. On PAYG, the Desire HD is £450 and includes a £10 Top Up. ®
