General Mobile's Touch Stone touted as the Android version of the HTC HD2
The HTC HD2 has longed held the totem pole as being one serious phone that's packing plenty of goodies under its hood. Although the Nexus One plays to a lot of the HD2's specs, it's still sorely lacking some of the visual cues that make the HD2 a monster looking handset. Even during a certain point, people questioned when the Taiwanese manufacturer was truly going to create an Android version of the HD2. You'll find the answer to question from a surprising manufacturer that sometimes garners attention with its line of look alike phones. General Mobile's “Touch Stone” plays to the needs of individuals out there that are hoping to see the much touted Android version of the HTC HD2. It adorns most of the impressive pieces of technology and features already found on the Windows Mobile smartphone – such as a 4.3” capacitive WVGA display, 5-megapixel camera, optional analog TV tuner, Android 2.0, and an ARM9-based PXA935 core. Sounds too good to be true, right? Well apparently it is because the only thing that the Touch Stone was showing off during MWC was a dummy model of itself – although it is promised that production models will see light towards the end of the year. They really would've knocked it out of the ballpark if they did showcase an actual running pre-production model during the event, but its launch time frame places it in an unlikely situation where other manufacturers might set the bar even higher by then.
