What is the HTC Desire HD?

Quoting Wikipedia:

The HTC Desire HD (codenamed: "HTC Ace") is an Android smartphone by HTC Corporation. It was unveiled at a press event in London hosted by HTC on September 15, 2010, and was made available for sale in October in Europe and in January, 2011 in Canada. The Desire was HTC's flagship device in most markets until the release of their new line of flagship models, the HTC Sensation and the HTC Evo 3D.

The smartphone has an aluminium unibody design with the Android 2.2 Froyo operating system (though as of 16 May 2011, Android 2.3 Gingerbread is available to unlocked handsets and Vodafone customers) and the new and customised HTC Sense 2.1 user interface. On the back, there are two plastic covers, one contains the battery, while the other contains the SIM card and the microSDHC card.
