A side by side comparison of the HTC Desire HD and EVO 4G. Both are high-end devices that share common displays (4.3" WVGA) and cameras (8Mpix with dual LED flash), but different OS's (WP7 vs. Android), radios (HSPA+ vs. CDMA / WiMAX) and CPUs (first-generation Snapdragon in the EVO, second-gen in the Desire).
