Today the HTC event in London went off. I was watching the live blogs and hoping for a great Windows Phone 7 device to be revealed.
But no such luck as no Windows Phone 7 device was mentioned at all it seems…

Instead the HTC Desire HD and Desire Z was announced, both Android handsets with HTC Sense on them.

They talked a lot about improvements to Sense, and question is if they aren’t building in too much stuff into sense, just making it harder for them to upgrade older phones to new Android version when they roll out. Although that might not be a priority as it would be better for them if people that wanted the latest versions all went out and got new phones.

The specs for the devices:

4.3″ Screen (what kind of screen was not divulged, but most likely slcd)
1 GHz Snapdragon processor
SRS and Dolby Mobile
8MP camera with dual-LED flash
720p video recording
802.11n Wifi
Estimated price 579€

HTC Desire Z
3.7″ Screen (most likely slcd)
800 MHz Scorpion processor
5 MP camera with LED flash
720p video recording
Landscape keyboard with “z-hinge” that make it fold out from the screen
802.11n Wifi
Estimated price 499€

Both handsets to be available from next month on “Vodaphone markets” (and no further explanation here unfortunately).
