So it looks like one of the most anticipated devices will be coming to the U.S. at last, with the a very necessary subsidy, through T-Mobile. As with the DROID, the HD2 has been called a very legitimate challenger to the iPhone and while the Android invasion in the U.S. has taken some of the excitement from this device, we have no doubt that once American cellphone fans see the 4.3 inch capacitve touch screen with their own eyes, and feel the slim build while watching the speed of the Snapdragon 1GHz processor, the HTC HD2 will again vault to the superstar status where only a few other handsets reside. As for the carrier, the phone could be a major prize for T-Mobile , especially with the proper marketing. For if we have learned one thing about the success of the DROID on Verizon, and the lack of it with the Pre and the Pixi on Sprint, too clever avant-garde ads are a turn off to potential smartphone buyers and that in your face marketing seems to attract the deep pocketed smartphone buyers who will pay up for what they perceive to be the best device available, with all the features they could ever use. As for when we might see the HD2 ready for U.S. buyers, WMExperts says to expect a launch in March 2010. No word yet on pricing.
