Between these two, definately Desire HD...

Wait until both are available then take him into a shop and let him choose. My preference is for the keyboard and smaller screen, but it's a very personal choice.

The Desire HD is the better phone, but also more expensive.

The Desire Z is cheaper, but also of a lower-spec and will be unable to run Android 3 (at least official).

I'd get him the Desire Z to be honest, unless he's a geek/technofan. =]

If you want a massive touchscreen, Desire HD without a doubt, but if a keyboard is what he's after, the Desire Z definitely, although the desire z has a smaller screen it actually has the exact same resolution meaning that the pixel density is higher, therefore clearer images, so if it was me I'd get the Desire Z, but the Desire HD does look a slightly better phone overall

Alternative phone....I've just purchase a Orange San Francisco on PAYG for £99+£10 compulsory top up. It's a android phone like the HTC desire with very good AMOLED screen (800x480 resolution). It can be unlocked very easily and used on Giff Gaff. Google it and you will find some very good reviews.

Neither. Get him an iPhone. They overrule every phone.

Lol no seriously just go with gut instinct. What's your budget and what does he prefer most?
