HTC Desire to receive DivX playback support in future update

HTC Legend, HTC Desire, HTC HD2, HTC HD Mini

I had the chance to talk to HTC a couple of hours ago during their local HTC Legend/Desire/HD Mini presentation. There was obviously nothing new to learn (especially since I already got some hands-on action last week at the MWC). The only new piece of info I got was about the rumored DivX playback and 720P encoding capabilities of the HTC Desire (aka HTC Bravo). The answer I got was that DivX support will be added in a future update (they didn’t say much about 720P support but from the way it sounded it should be coming in the same update) because they didn’t have time to finalise the feature before launching the handset.

HTC HD2, HTC Desire, HTC HD Mini

The HTC Legend and HTC Desire are currently scheduled to launch in Spring (probably in March) and the HTC HD Mini in May. Check out my HTC Desire Review hereand don’t forget to follow us on Twitter.
