as many awesome features and hardware specs as this phone has.. its still 6.5 and is outdated before it even launches since 7 is litterally right around the corner. if this was a windows 7 phone with all this, id probably heavily concider it.

try out for winmo 6.5.3 versions... it's pretty refreshing, with whole new designs for start button and X button...

IMO WP7S and WM6.5 are completely different OS's. They might as weel be made from different companies. I feel there are many users out there that will not have interest in WP7S... ie People that dont have facebook or twitter. Many power users will not go in the direction of WP7S, opting probably for Android open OS. The beauty of WM lies in the ability for it to be modified by the consumer easily. Anyone willing to learn the OS/registry edits will see that the OS can do pretty much anything you want out of a smartphone.

Remember, with only a little work, you will be able to unofficially experience WP7 on your phone. When it comes out of course.

I am buying this! I've been waiting on a true multimedia/PDA combo with an extra large screen and a user friendly interface. There is pent up demand for the HD2 in the U.S. which will make this a brisk seller, especially at the $199 price point. The lack of a Windows 7 upgrade path is irrelevant to the majority of consumers who will buy this phone!

Come on jrcrow79, if you are going to state thing Noah said you need to state all of it. Noah also brought great attention to the HD2's Sense UI for doing a great job of covering up an awful win 6.5, how great the on-screen keyboard was, and how blazing fast the handset was due to the 1GHz processor. That right there is more than just a "screen is the only thing this phone has going for it is the screen". Noah said, "It was the BEST Windows Mobile phone to date"

Actually omarc26, HTC is making a Android version. It's called the Supersonic. It's suppose to be Sprint's first 4G phone.

Interesting to see if the Supersonic comes to market considering Sprint's pathetic 4G network wont help its sales. All the spy photos of it seem to be the Incredible which has a red earpiece.

Why isn't T-Mobile officially announced anything yet.... that's the only thing bothering me

I was wondering the same thing, but then I thought about it.......................when was the last time you actually saw any carrier provide a whole lot of advertisement for HTC handsets??? Think about it.................Mogul, Diamond, Touch Pro, TP2, Hero, etc........

tmobile does little advertising for its phones. Most carriers dont. That advertising is "USUALLY" done by the manufacturers themselves. hopefully we will start seeing some closer to launch though. You still have a few weeks left. beauiful hardware... horrible OS. when theres a 100% working hack for Win7 or Android, ill happily hold that device. Even all the awesome services that come with it cant save it from being windows 6.5
