Everything you want to know about the HTC HD2 in a video

Everything you want to know about the HTC HD2 in a video
If after watching all 9 minutes and 53 seconds of this video, you are not thinking about what you are going to do in the next few months to get the HTC HD2, then you might need to see the doctor. This video gives you an amazingly thorough tour of the handset. The handset is awaiting a final ROM expected on October 16th according to ai.rs, the source of this video and other news about this phone. Everything seems to be running smoothly and the screen is quite responsive and snappy. Battery life is said to be worse than the Touch Diamond2, but better than the original Touch Diamond which translates into about 2 days of life with normal usage. We are hoping that HTC CEO Peter Chou wasn't whistling dixie when he said that the unit was heading for a U.S. launch in the first quarter. The U.S. carrier that gets this model is going to have a real powerhouse on its' hand. Anyone mentally mapping out their plan to pick up one of these puppies?

I'm impressed to say the least. Runs WM 6.5 like Iphone 3GS runs Iphone OS except for one thing... it can multitask. I'm going to keep on eye on who releases this phone first.

Seriously. I have been with AT&T for a number of years. I get great coverage with AT&T where I live... However, I am not opposed to jumping ship when this comes out. Stellar phone for sure!

right on... wm taints this phone... if this was android and it went to verizon, apple/att would have a slight throw-uppy taste in their mouth.

I just know because of their marige w/Apple and that cursed iPhone (all 3 iterations) AT&T is gonna let me down and take a pass. If they do, I may have to jump ship from my employer and get a rival's cell plan. I wish they had that beautiful Hero too. Sorta glad they pased on that stupid looking lancaster (which was probably their version of the Hero) Keyboard just didn't look right or comfortable. It almost looked like it was 2 phones photoshopped together.

this phone is completely orgasmic. being a winmo driven device doesnt cripple it. htc masks winmo greatly. besides this is showing winmo is evolving. i cant wait to get this in my hands. the screen is large enough i wont need a key board. as much as i love htc their phones keyboards tend to stop working for some reason. i think im going to return my pro 2 and pray this comes to sprint.
