You might be forgiven for thinking the HTC Desire Z is the misunderstood second cousin in the HTC litter. When the Taiwanese manufacturer already has the Desire, the Desire HD, the Desire S and more, it’s hard to get your head around just why you should care about the Desire Z. But the Desire Z truly offers something the other models don't -- a physical keyboard.
The economical Desire line keeps chugging along as HTC just announced four new handsets for Taiwan, The Desire 300, Desire 501, Desire 601, and Desire 700. The Desire 700 seems to be an affordable version of the One and it has dual-SIM capability (HSPA and GSM/EDGE).
The original HTC Desire is credited with kickstarting the explosive growth of the Android ecosystem in Australia after it launched through Telstra in April 2010. Now HTC and Telstra are trying the same trick again with the launch of the son of Desire. But in a much more crowded smartphone marketplace can they re-kindle the magic? Read on to find out.

After all the confusion on whether the HTC Desire HD will be getting an update to Android 4.0 or not, we finally have a solid answer from HTC. It’s now official that the HTC Desire HD will not be getting the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update. The manufacturer has said that the HTC Desire has the best software experience possible for it’s current hardware on Android 2.3.
