HTC Touch HD upgrades to Android 2.1 with Sense UI

HTC Touch HD upgrades to Android 2.1 with Sense UI
Now that didn’t take too long and we wish that more handsets could be like the HTC Touch HD. Earlier in the month we saw the former Windows Mobile giant shed its Microsoft platform in favor of Android 2.0 thanks to the team over at xda developers. It’s even rarer to see something like this occur with most of the hardware intact and functional; such as the radios so you’ll be able to text and make calls. The latest thing to pop up on the venerable smartphone is Android 2.1 with the newest Sense UI – possibly a great combination in itself. It’s really surprising at how quickly these guys can pull off this feat when you consider the sluggish time owners of other Android handsets have to endure in getting their official updates. There are still some bugs to work out that prevents certain hardware from operating correctly – such as the Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi, and the external speaker. If you’re not the patient type, just be prepared for an extremely slow boot up time.  So if you own an HTC Touch HD and want to be held in the same class as the Nexus One, then give yourself a shot at this and download the files to experience the latest features Android has to offer.

Samsung and HTC has recently been in the smartphone business unlike apple. and look at the phones that HTC and Samsung created and they are new to the business. think before u make stupid comments cause all the hype that surrounds apple now is gonna be gone in a couple of years because apple cant keep up with the other manufactures.

htc has been making smartphones for years now, as has samsung, though not as long, but both have been making smartphones much longer than apple has
