HTC HD2  and HTC HD7

HTC HD2 and HTC HD7

When the HTC HD2 was launched, the 4.3 inch screen on the device was a marvel, a joy to behold. These days, if a new phone doesn't get rolled out with at least a 4.3 inch screen, you wonder why the manufacturer even bothered to produce the model. The HTC HD2 was originally powered by Windows Mobile with the predecessor to HTC Sense, TouchFLO 3D, on top. Of course, many of you might remember that the phone was originally called the HTC Leo.The HTC HD7 took the numeric part of its name from its use of Windows Phone 7.

Now, the app entitled "...I'm a WP7!" is showing off statistics for a device called the HTC HD8 powered by Windows Phone build 7740 (not Windows 8 like you might have expected). The device first appeared on the eve of New Year's Eve (that's December 30th, folks). Other info reveals that the handset is plying its wares for Vodafone's Romanian network (Vodafone.RO). And you shouldn't count out a Romanian leak because the recent purchase of a leaked LG Fantasy came from a seller in Romania. And one of the first pictures of Windows Phone Tango came from Slovakia.

While I am not impressed with the naming, I am happy HTC is keeping the line alive.

Is HTC HD8 a rebrand of HTC HD7/HD7S? Or is it a completely new model? It can't be the HTC Radiant because rumors have it that this phone is getting a 4.7 screen, not 4.3 as rumored in the article above.

As an HD7 user, I look forward to an HD8. If true, hopefully will come to states as a tmo exclusive, just like its predecessor.

t-mo deserves a WP exclusive, no doubt.
