PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It's no surprise that HTC is working very hard on increasing its brand awareness, preferring to market phones as being HTC devices instead of carrier-branded ones that do not carry any HTC branding at all. This strategy is paying off, and today must've been very nice for them: they held an Apple-style product announcement in London, attended by media from all over the world. The news: two new phones, and an improved Sense experience which includes a web presence where you can remotely manage your HTC devices.

Not quite the Sprint Evo 4G

The HTC Desire HD is not quite the Sprint Evo 4G:

* No front-facing camera
* No 4G
* 768 MB memory, rather than the 512 MB in the Evo
* 1 GHz Qualcomm Scorpion (or Snapdragon 2?) rather than 1 GHz Snapdragon

The HTC Desire Z is coming to the United States as the HTC Vision/T-Mobile G2 ("successor" to the HTC Dream/T-Mobile G1) without HTC Sense. That probably means we Americans will be able to load HTC Sense roms on it, while Europeans can load stock Android if they want...

Actually, the G2 is one of only two devices I can think of that came with stock Android, that Google wasn't publicly involved in creating (the other being the HTC Hero/T-Mobile Mytouch 3G/"the European HTC G2")
I'm quite looking forward to it, the Moto Droid 2 didn't impress me for whatever reason.
