HTC HD2 gets a boost in specs for U.S. launch

HTC HD2 gets a boost in specs for U.S. launch
HTC is really doing what it can to make those in the U.S. forget all about Windows Mobile and the number of apps available, and just look at the sexy beast that is the HD2. To that end, the Taiwanese based manufacturer has raised some of the specs of the U.S. version of the phone. RAM is increased from 448MB to 576MB while ROM is boosted to 1GB from 512MB. And instead of a measly 4GB microSD card pre-installed on the overseas version, the U.S. HD2 will come with a 16GB card out of the box. Kudos to HTC and T-Mobile. Now if you could only some how push the guys at Redmond to start paying those developers who have been trying to build up the Marketplace for Mobile. Any potential Android buyers out there now thinking about giving the HD2 a shot? For the latest specifications on the phone, directly from HTC, check the source link.

Nice! Maybe to help satisfy the specs for WM7. I am completely jealous of all you T-Mo users! Let me know how awesome it is!

T-Mobile does seem to be owning with all the reported phones due out (with unknown release dates), but then again, they're also leakier than a sieve when it comes to keeping secrets. If they're on one end of the spectrum, Verizon is on the opposite end. My bet is when the smoke clears and it's July, the others big three will have their own competitive phones in the line-up such that T-Mobile will still have a hard time growing its customer base.

It just gets better with every posting! 16 gb card included. I hope that the supersonic is truly an Android mirror. Id buy an hd2 but like they said the limited apps is the one downer

T-Mobile is ruling in 2010! AT&T beware

There's still that little caveat about network coverage so I won't say they rule, despite the awesome devices (which they always seem to have). For someone who travels, these feature-rich devices become sluggish when you leave your home area. Sorta takes the word mobile out of mobile network, ya know? I guess you can always drive around, looking for a starbucks to park your rear and sit on wi-fi for a half-hour or so.

Too bad they didn't boost the most important spec: supported 3G frequency. Ladies and gentlemen, introducing the HD2 on the fastest but smallest 3G network in the US! Um, no thanks.

T-Mo's phones are great I must admit but their almost none existing 3G network as my phone would connect and disconnect made me leave them

Biggles your a fool, I travel between SLC, L.A, SEATTLE and DENVER and ALWAYS have a 3g signal on my Nexus. I don't know where the hell you travel (Salt Flats?) l but I'd say that's enough 3G signal for me.
