WinMo 7 better blow our friggin minds away because it is awfully late to join the game. iPhone OS, WebOS, Blackberry OS, and Android OS all have a leg up on WinMo 7. Even Bada is expected to arrive well before WinMo 7 graces us with it's presense (hopefully).

I agree, WinMo7 may be shooting themselves in the foot taking so long to release. Better be one hell of an OS when it launches.

New to these forums. Why release a phone like the HTC HD2 on a carrier that is one of least desiralble to be on???

What are you talking about? HD2 is NOT going to ATT? HD2 is going to T-Mobile because it has the best customers service (along with Verizon) and a lot more affordable than ATT and Verizon. And it has a long and a great partnership with HTC.

It is also being released on T-Mo b/c HTC and T-Mo have a great relationship in business. The first ever Android phone was made by HTC and available on T-Mobile USA first. Also, T-Mo's GSM bands are in allignment with the EU, where the HD2 has been available for 3 months now, so nothing needs to change to make it compatible. As a VZW user, I am incredibly jealous of all your T-Mo people for being the first in the US to get this phone.

I was not aware of the business partnership that HTC and T-Mobile had. Its great that they sustain that partnership with great new phones, I just hope with a device of this calibar they will be able to maximize sales with this carrier alone. The ATT comment from Styngers was pretty funny.
