    HTC desire HD

    Made of a solid block of aluminum, a 1GHz 8255 Snapdragon processor, 8 megapixel camera with dual-LED flash and 720p video recording, Dolby Mobile, and HSPA+ data with 802.11n WiFi and enhanced HTC Sense experience with HTCsense.com services (backup, erasing/locating device remotely)
