Yesterday HTC finally unveiled their Desire Z smartphone, this device is HTC’s first Android device to feature a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, therefore people are keen to see some hands-on videos, luckily we have two for you to check out.
Sadly we can’t embed these videos on this page, however if you would like to check them out scroll down to the source link at the end of this post.
The first video quickly introduces you to the physical design, you get to see the smooth slide-out mechanism and the easy to use keyboard, I was particularly impressed by the way the display instantaneously changes from portrait to landscape when sliding out the keyboard.
The next video is a lot more impressive, firstly it shows that the Desire Z boots up extremely quickly, also it reveals that is called the Desire Z because the slide-out keyboard’s hinge is a new type which resembles a ‘Z’, this hinge is strong and allows the Desire Z to be thin. The video also shows off the super snappy interface and the optical trackpad, and just how customizable the Android 2.2 FroYo OS is.
At the end of the second video they begin talking about the Desire Z’s internal specs, however this part has either been muted on purpose or something went wrong during the recording, which is particularly frustrating.
Remember both of the videos can be seen by checking out the links below, check them out then come back and let us know if you are impressed.
