The latest mobile phone from HTC, ‘Desire Z’ has now revived the slide-out keyboard in a smartphone, which is now hardly seen in them.
Now a days we hardly Android mobile phones with a slide-out keyboard, with the notable exception of Motorola. Most of the mobile phoe makers started copying iPhone and began making keyboard less mobile phones sets. but we see that now HTC has once again brought out a slide-out keyboard in its recent mobile phone. A handset with a physical keyboard has not featured in the HTC’s repertoire for quite some time.
This is sure to please mobile phone users who are looking for a cutting edge smartphone, but prefer a physical keyboard over the use of a touchscreen. The benefits are obvious as many mobile phone users prefer the increased text input speed when composing text messages are browsing the internet.
Features: HTC Desire Z will boast many similar features to its predecessor. These include a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, Android 2.1 (however this will be upgradeable to v2.2 at a later date) a 3.7 inch TFT capacitive touchscreen and of course a slide out full QWERTY keyboard. As with the original version, the highly customisable HTC Sense UI will also feature, along with a powerful 8 megapixel camera with the ability to record 720p HD video footage. Access to the internet looks set to be provided in the form of both HSDPA as well as a faster Wi-Fi connection taking advantage of local wireless networks. Other standard features include Bluetooth, GPS, accelerometer sensor, expandable memory and a 3.5mm audio jack.
HTC Desire Z’s Camera: The HTC Desire Z looks set to include an 8 megapixel digital camera with 720p HD video recording capabilities. This is certainly a big improvement on the camera found on the original Desire which offered 5 megapixels and only WVGA video quality. The capability to record 720p footage means that the HTC Desire Z offers users the chance to take recording video footage to the next level, and the results can be enjoyed in stunning clarity on the 3.7 inch touchscreens pixel resolution of 480x 800.
