HTC Desire HD gets rumored specs ahead of Q4 debut?

Rumored specifications for the so-called HTC Desire HD, formerly tipped as the HTC Ace, have emerged, with one UK retailer suggesting the handset will arrive in October 2010.  According to SuperEtrader, the Desire HD will have a 4.3-inch WVGA touchscreen, 1GHz Snapdragon processor and 8-megapixel camera; in other words, it's a European version (and presumably 3G-only) of the HTC EVO 4G.

The HTC Ace had previously shown up on a leaked UK retailer roadmap devoid of any specifications; the list of abilities we now have are all pieced together from rumor, rather than anything official from HTC, but they do sound reasonably legitimate.  The HTC Desire HD is supposed to run Android 2.2 and support 720p HD video recording, Xvid playback, SRS surround sound and Flash 10, and have automatic face tracking in the camera and 4GB of internal storage.

It's also tipped to have a "unibody aluminium design" which sounds a whole lot like both the HTC Legend and, indeed, the HTC 1 fan concept we saw earlier in the week.
