HTC HD3 to launch with Windows Mobile 7 in November?
HTCpedia says it has come across specs in the wild for a purported HTC HD3. If you think the HD2 is something to see, the HD3 looks to take things further. A device that aims to blur the line between smartphone and PC, the HD3 is expected to have a 4.5 inch display with resolution of 1290 x 800 pixels, and support for 16 million colors and multi-touch. Compare that to the current pixel leader, the 480 x 854 resolution on the Motorola DROID. Powering the HD3 will be a Snapdragon chip running at 1.5GHz (currently, Qualcomm has said such a speedy chip will not be ready until 2011). You know a 5MP shooter would not suffice for the HD3 and that is why it will feature an 8MP camera with a Xenon flash.The handset will have 1GB of RAM/ROM and 32GB of additional memory space. Sure, these specs sound way too good to be true, but remember, the HD2 specs also seemed hard to believe at first, too. The device will run on Windows Mobile 7 and a November launch is expected.

And in October, Verizon will get the HD2, or some re-designed version with the same internals. Gotta love riding a year behind the curve.

At least you get to ride the curve, as opposed to getting the shaft like all of us VZW customers kept getting back before smartphones started pouring back into the line-up.

I agree I have been waiting for the HD2 and have been elig ot upgrade for over 1 year now... so just like the original touch CDMA, 14 months after the UK release of the Touch 2G.... so that means VZW will get the HD2 in november... as always.

My vision: Windows Mobile is going to come back strong The Apple hype is starting to end. The iPhone is a succes, but many are starting to hate it or are bored by it. The 3GS did not add much (people are disappointed) , the most recent Apple product, the iPad, is also a disappointment. This all adds to Apple going in to the negative (off course their products will keep selling, because mainstream people love most Apple created things). The iPhone 4G will be important: make it another small upgrade -> you have a big problem. This would be the third time in a row Apple disappoints. Make it a beast -> you are back on top. Android is going to keep growing, but: the last phone that came with android, the Nexus One, failed. I don't know why, because it's a solid smartphone. But this is also something to keep in mind. I don't want to talk about Nokia or Blackberry. Windows Mobile is coming from the bottom from a popularity point of view. It was weak in terms nice looking UI and touch optimized menu's (even though most people that talk trash about it really don't know what they are talking about. I myself gave it a chance, and I am happy I did). As probably most people are noticing, there is more and more Windows Mobile news . The HTC HD2 is a big monster, which already helps Windows Mobile get more popular. And most of the Windows Mobile 7 news is positive. Microsoft is a good company, if you look at the Xbox, Zune and Windows 7 they are all a success. So there is a good chance things will change in the Smartphone world soon... ONTOPIC: This is all rumor. Things like Xenon Flash don't seen real (HTC has never done that before). But it would be very nice, though I don't want anything bigger than my HD2.

Even specs as FARFETCHED as this can not make Windows Mobile relevant.

I'm not sure it's fair to say the Nexus One failed. It has not sold like crazy but I think that is due in large part to the confusion over distribution. Were it being sold in the usual fashion, you'd see it doing much better. Let's see how it is handled by Verizon. Re: the phone itself, the vast majority of reviews I have seen are very favorable. And my friend who works at Google let me play with hers for a few minutes and I liked it the best of any phone I have used. I am not a fanboy of any particular phone, I just want the best phone I can get for how I use it. If that's an iPhone, or Nexus, or Droid, or HD2, I don't care. I happen to like the Nexus best right now and when it comes out on Verizon, if there is no more definitive info re: the Bravo's availability here, I'll be getting the nexus.

4.5" screen? Any bigger and these things aren't going to be very practical as phones.

there would have to be practically no bezel. an infinity type screen ala HP laptops.

4.5" with no bezel would work for me. YES PLEASE!

4.5 would be optimal for users that don't talk much, but message(email and the like), browse web, and do a lot of media. I talk about 60 minutes/month... I don't care how I look talking on it, I care how much better a media experience I get. If you talk alot, invest in a quality BT headset.

Sprint?? Their already getting the HTC Supersonic, which is a HD2 clone. Verizon needs the HD3 badly! All they have is the stupid ass Droid. Why do all the good smartphones end up with the other carriers? SIGH.....

Are You seriouse? verizon gets all the best phones and the htc supersonic is no hd2 clone, sprint needs better phones so i think the hd3 should go to sprint..

Yeah it is somewhat similar to the HD2 but its going to be running that gay Android OS... I'd rather have windows mobile. I haven't seen any previews of the supersonic either. Since the HD3 will have winmo it should be better than the supersonic as well.

Is this real? I think is a fake, or maybe for 2011

agree, should not be bigger than hd2 if something probably bit shorter.myself hope tha T-MOBILE gets it. also I agree about the N1 tell you what, when I first got it did not think much of it, but the more I use it the better it gets specially with the last update 2.2 yeahhhhh portable wi-fi... top of the line, wish carriers would start asking for their own icons in regards to Android, hate the fact that they all look alike...these phones are not cheap and they should look different from each carrier. hopefully win 7 will have something new, at least multitaskiing, guess I would have to play with the phone to see what it offer, but not too sure about those squares" as the main screen
