Included among the new features of the HTC Desire Z / Desire HD is the updated Sense UI. Besides the little tweaks in the interface, the updated Sense also brings a super-fast 5 second boot time. The tech is called “HTC Fast Boot” and is exclusive to the newly announced phones.

HTC Fast Boot

Boot time on previous HTC devices (like Desire, Legend, Wildfire etc) was a full one minute, you can see how slow that is compared to the start up captured in the video below:

However, this really is a sort of ‘hibernate’ mode which stores data in RAM to quickly start up the next time you use it. Desire Z and HD still take an entire minute to boot when you remove the battery and power up again.

But that’s besides the point; how many times are you going to remove the battery to start up again? Not too many times, I suppose.
