HTC held an event at London in September to announce two new handsets. That might seem like ages ago with how insanely rapid phones are being released these days but four months ago isn’t that far back. Bell launched the Desire Z in November and it looks like TELUS is going to be the exclusive carrier for the Desire HD.

The device ships with Android 2.2 Froyo and has a 4.3-inch screen, 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 8MP camera with a dual-LED flash, 720p video recording, 802.11n WiFi, GPS, HSPA+ data and Bluetooth. No official pricing or release date but rumours point to possibly February or March with a $499 no-term cost. A lot of readers have been wanting an equivalent to Sprint’s EVO 4G in the States. This is it.
