HTC HD7 vs. Desire HD: battle of the 4.3-inchers

Vlad Savov
Come October 21, European smartphone buyers will be faced with the enviable choice of having to pick between two 4.3-inch handsets from HTC bearing the latest and greatest OS from their respective camps. The HD7 will be one of the flag-bearing Windows Phone 7 devices, whereas the Desire HD -- which is already sneaking out into retail in some small quantities -- offers the finest Froyo dessert Google has yet cooked up, replete with some extra sprinkles of Sense-ible enhancements. We'll have full reviews of both in the coming days, but for now, we thought we'd whet your appetite with a tour round their oversized bodies, both in pictorial form below and on video, right after the break.

N.B. In the video we say that both the Desire HD and the HD7 have 5 megapixel cameras, which is, of course, inaccurate. The Desire HD has an 8 megapixel sensor.
