The HTC HD2 has even the most tranquil cellphone fan excited, and why not? The device seemingly has what it takes to satisfy both enterprise and consumer users with a massive 4.3 inch capacitive touchscreen, a 5MP camera, Wi-Fi, and Windows Mobile 6.5. Now it wouldn'tmake sense to have a phone do all of these things and not give it the power to run it efficiently, so the HD2 has the Snapdragon 1GHz processor under the hood. Considering that the HTC Touch HD never made it to a U.S. carrier, many in the States took to carrying rabbit feet, lucky horsehoes or even avoiding cracks on the sidewalk, all in an attempt to get a U.S. release of the device formerly known as Leo. Well, the good news is that something worked, because as we recently reported, the HD2 is expected to have a Stateside launch sometime in January according to HTC CEO Peter Chou.
It is less than 3 months until the beginning of 2010, but for those who are longing after this handset it might as well be forever. So to satisfy your appetite for the moment, here is 65 seconds of bliss on video as we see the HD2 in all its multi-touch glory. The first Windows Mobile phone to have the Sense UI, the unit has its own HTC branded web site that extols all of the model's glory. Check it out at the source link. We don't know yet which carrier (carriers?) will be getting its hand on this bad boy in the U.S., but we do know it is going to be a long hard winter for those in the U.S. who have already decided that this is their next phone.
I think I just "Jizzed In My Pants!" Lol. I know they say it's coming to the US in early 2010 but I can't/won't allow myself to get overly excited and then have to deal with the disappointment of it being spayed and neutered before reaching our shores.
While the form may change slightly, the guts will stay the same. The snapdragon processor will remain, screen size the same, ram, etc. I don't think HTC would want to step on their johnson like that, by gimping the phone. This phone should have the horsepower to be upgraded to WM7....
