How well do you know the HTC HD2? Find out next week!
Even if you're the type of cellphone fanatic that remembers when the HTC HD2 was the Leo, it is possible that you don't know everything about the Windows Mobile device. In fact, T-Mobile U.S.A. is pretty sure that they know something about the HD2 that you don't know and is planning on releasing some more info about the phone next week. In a tweet sent out by the carrier, the underlying message was that some piece of news-whether it be the exact launch date, the price, some new upgrade to the specs-is going to be revealed next week.  The last time we reported on a launch date, March 24th was the expected day for the U.S. debut of this highly awaited handset.

The stunning 4.3 inch capacitive touchscreen has hypnotized many a cellphone buyer, even those in America who simply watched a video of the HD2 in action. Will T-Mobile U.S.A. be releasing some information about the model, like those old style articles in "16" and "Tiger Beat"? (The HD2's favorite color is blue and it prefers smart girls. The Handset's favorite food is bytes of data). Whatever information is revealed by the nation's fourth largest carrier, it's sure to whet the appetite of those who passed up on the latest group of Android releases just to pick up the HD2.

i fail to see why. Windows is the least impressive and most buggy of all the "smartphone" systems. I deal with phones every day. Instead of throwing out baseless comments, why dont you explain your views?

Remixfa, have you ever owned a WinMo phone? I had the i730 in 2005-2006, the moto Q in 2007, and have been using the HTC Vogue since 2008 (the day it came out for VZW). I have NEVER HAD A SINGLE PROBLEM! EVER!!!! Sure I have to soft reset my phone sometimes, it is a mini computer afterall. Every phone, including dumb feature phones need a reset. If you had problems with your phone I blame you, the user. Me, several of my co-workers, 100s of members of the Windows Phone Connection (like myself) don't have proeblems, and are eager to help poeple who break their WM phones, or just plain don't know what they are doing on their device. Going off of the basis of other people's comments is ignorance and screams stupidity.

assuming that ive never had one screams more than stupidity, der kilt. yes ive had a few. I dont like them. Ive worked for vzw and tmo as customer service and sales, so i see and deal with them every day. It is a system in need of a major overhaul, which thankfully its finally getting. Both companies ive worked for i see probably a 2/3rd return rate on windows devices. We tried not to sell them at VZW, and we try not to at Tmo. So, its not "people are stupid, and your smarter than everyone" its "windows is far behind the competition and you have yet to catch up" Is windows all bad? No. Is it as good as BB, Android, or even the evil iphone? No, its not.

I work with cell phones and every single Windows phone I have had to work with (MDA, WING, TOUCH PRO 2, Q, etc) have all been slow. It seems like they all have significant lag from when you press a button to when it actually does what you asked it to do. I dont know if after a while it starts to pick up speed or not but it has been bad enough to where I have never even considered owning one. I have never had to reset my G1 unless I just did an update because it doesnt crash on me. Maybe its just my unit but I have known other people who own a G1 as well and have had no issues. I really want this phone but will have to wait till it comes out and mess around with it to see what the speed is really like. Like I said maybe after it's been working for a while it doesnt lag as much but I cant spend that much money just to try and find out.
