Vodafone Expected to Get the HTC Desire Z Android 2.2 Powered Smartphone

HTC has been known to release several hard hitting handsets over the years with many of their offerings such as the HTC EVO 4G and the HTC Hero making huge strides. If you’re an Android fan, you’ll probably also known that HTC was actually the first handset manufacturer to support Android with the T-Mobile G1 back in 2008.


The times have changed quite a bit since the time of the T-Mobile G1 but that doesn’t mean HTC has abandoned Android as many of their hardest hitting releases are powered by the open source mobile operating system. One such device is the HTC Desire Z which features a 3.7-inch touchscreen, an 800MHz processor, 512MB of RAM, a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash/autofocus and, of course, Google’s Android ‘Froyo’ 2.2 mobile operating system.


If you’re in the United States, the HTC Desire Z may look a bit familiar as it is essentially a re branded T-Mobile G2. However, if you’re out of the States and wondering which carrier will support the Desire Z, you’ll be happy to know that today Vodafone has announced that they will be carrying the device. Then again, this announcement was more of a leak but considering the alleged legitimacy of the above leaked promotional material, we’re going to mark this one off as confirmed.
