Vodafone Qatar, in partnership with HTC Corporation, a global designer of smartphones, announced today the launch of the Android-based HTC Desire HD in Qatar.

The HTC Desire HD showcases outstanding multimedia content with its bright 4.3” LCD display and Dolby/SRS sound and is the first to be powered by the new 1GHz Qualcomm 8255 Snapdragon processor. The HTC Desire HD enables 720p HD video recording and includes an 8-megapixel camera with dual-flash.  Building on the unibody heritage of the HTC Legend, the HTC Desire HD is sculpted from a block of solid aluminium. It also includes HTC’s new Fast Boot functionality that enables people to quickly make a call or check emails by shortening the time needed to complete the power-up sequence.  HTC Sense, an innovate user interface, offers enhancements that improve how people capture, create, share, and access multimedia content.  Using the service, people can simply manage their mobile phone experience from their HTC phone or personal computer.
