We've seen it make its way around the rumor mill several times, and HTC made it official today at a press event in New York. The HTC Rezound will be the first Beats by Dr. Dre device available in the United States, and will pack a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 4.3-inch HD 720p display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video capture, a front-facing camera, 1,620 mAh battery, and Android 2.3 with HTC Sense 3.5. HTC says that the Rezound is Ice Cream Sandwich ready, and it'll be packaged with a pair of Beats headphones when it launches on November 14th for $299.99. It's a hot phone for sure, but it launches in the same timeframe as the Motorola DROID RAZR, Samsung Galaxy Nexus, HTC Vivid, and Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket. Does it distinguish itself enough to warrant a look?
