Here’s the HTC Desire Z, one the first Android phones to come with a Qwerty keypad since the T-Mobile G1 – the first Android phone. The HTC Desire Z runs on Android 2.2, has a 5-megapixel camera and comes with fancy metal accents.
We’ve taken the HTC Desire Z out of its box to give you a better idea of what it looks like up close and personal and what comes with it.
The four-row Qwerty keypad of the HTC Desire Z. The keys have a rubbery feel and depress nicely. You can add keyboard shortcuts to apps and contacts to those two numbered keys on the bottom right (in between the space bar and the right-hand shift key).
The innards of the HTC Desire Z on display. As you can see you’ll need to dig the battery out if you want to swap SIM and microSD cards. The battery cover is a thin metal plate which clips snugly into place with a satisfying click.
The back of the HTC Desire Z. There’s the LED flash of next to the lens of the 5-megapixel camera. Power button and 3.5mm jack are up there on the top, volume control is visible on the right.
In the box you get HTC’s hybird mains/USB charger/adapter. This accessory allows you to use the same cable for charging via the mains and transferring files and data to the Desire Z through the USB port. Here it is in its fully evolved version.
