HTC Desire HD (Ace) spotted in the wild with Android 2.2 Froyo

The HTC Desire HD, also known as the Ace, was outed by retailer SuperETrader last month. With the customary leaked introduction out of the way, we can now turn our eyes to potentially the first spy shot of this rumored handset. The surprisingly clear photo is consistent with the leaked specs of the Desire HD and reveals an Android handset that sports the touch-sensitive buttons of the Incredible and the super-sized form factor of the EVO 4G.

For those keeping track, the Desire HD is expected to be a modest upgrade from the original Desire and is rumored to include:
4.3 inch WVGA Touch Screen
8 Megapixel Camera
1 GHZ Qualcomm Processor
Android 2.2
HD 720p Video Capture
Xvid Video Playback
SRS Surround Sound
Adobe Flash 10 Support
4GB Internal Memory (up to 32GB)
Uni-Body Aluminium Design

This hot, new handset is expected to launch in October in the UK and will replace the original Desire in HTC’s successful Android handset lineup.

While the folks in the UK can jump for joy, those in North America can remain somber as there is no indication that the Desire HD will launch anytime soon. Unlike the UK where the Desire has been available for months, the Desire is a relative newcomer to the marketplace in North America. The Canadian version hit the shelves of Telus on Friday and the US variant is pegged for an August launch on both Cellular South and US Cellular. Though consumers may be disappointed by this possibility, HTC would not defy conventional wisdom and release the Desire HD so soon after the launch of the Desire.
