As reported previously, the HTC Desire will support DivX playback shortly after its release with a small Android update.
Also reported previously was that the HTC Desire will record in 720p (high definition).
DivX support coming natively to the Desire
What I didn’t do was put 2 + 2 together as a report from LeakDroid.com has pointed out; the Desire will actually record its 720p videos with the DivX codec.
It’ll be interesting to see how the videos come out when the phone is finally released.
