T-Mobile launches the HTC HD2 and Nokia Nuron

T-Mobile launches the HTC HD2 and Nokia Nuron
From the very first time that the HTC HD2 was revealed to the public (initially as the Leo), cellphone fanatics have deeply desired the Windows Mobile powered handset. The size of the capacitive display-at 4.3 inches-wowed everyone who had a look at the device. And with the inclusion of the 1GHz Snapdragon processor under the hood, the HD2 would have the power to make using the handset snappy and smooth. Finally, T-Mobile is launching the HTC HD2 today. That's right, all of you who have lusted after this model for months can now run over to the store and have it in their hands tonight. The HD2 is priced at $199.99 with a 2 year contract.

Also being released by T-Mobile today is the Nokia Nuron. If the HD2 is the highly functional handset for the power user, the Nuron is on the other end of the spectrum as a touchscreen phone for the person who is buying his first such device. Even considering that, the phone does have some nice features like Flash Lite 3.0 which will allow you to view YouTube videos from the web page. Priced at $69.99 with a 2 year contract, the Nuron offers social networking and a 3.5mm audio jack for those who like to listen to music.

T-Mobile should be doing some brisk business today as both the power user and the first time touchscreen buyer are covered with the HD2 and the Nuron respectively. As for which handset is next to be appointed the "must have" phone, we have plenty of candidates including the HTC Incredible and the HTC EVO 4G just to name a couple.

you want to wait until the brand new OS comes out.. be a beta tester for it, cuz all first gen phones have bugs... have no apps for it because its not backwards compatable with any other windows phone... and have less functionality because its not 100% at launch?? LOL. just get the phone, and when windows 7 comes out, u can hack it onto it. Im sure 2 weeks after a W7 phone comes out they will have it hacked on to the HD2. That and Android.

and the HD2s are gone! Most stores ran out by 2pm yesterday in my area. I hope we get a drop shipment soon. Not bad for a phone with no real advertisement other than phone sites and word of mouth. The neuron is really nice for the price as well.
