T-Mobile officially getting the HTC HD2

T-Mobile officially getting the HTC HD2
A few weeks ago we had our first feeling that the HTC HD2 smartphone would be launched by T-Mobile, as it was showed by a leaked ROM. Now T-Mobile and HTC have officially announced the HD2, though no price or release date was given. It is currently listed as "coming soon" on the site and you can even submit your name and email address to be notified when it's released. For those of you not familiar with the HD2, it was originally launched overseas and comes with a 4.3" capacitive touchscreen (a first for a Windows Mobile phone) with 480x800 resolution, 5MP autofocus camera, Snapdragon 1000MHz processor, and will come with HTC Sense UI. The Press Release however does not state which version of Windows Mobile it will come with (6.1 or 6.5) and if it will be upgradable to WinMo 7. You may recall that HTC had some dispute over the claim that it would be upgradable to WinMo 7 a few days ago.

True The imagino is very nice. But looking at that and this side by side, its kinda like its little brother. Not nessessarily a bad thing, just depends on what you like...

They all need to wake up and start offering more variety. There's a whole world of phones out there that nobody in the US really knows about, and it's sad to see how everything revolves around what the carriers offer. I'd like to see more Nokia, Samsung, and SE smartphones here, on all the carriers.

MAGENTA!!!! WAY to FUcking BRING IT!!!!!!!!!!! 2010 IS the Year of T-Mobile Folks if you didn't know that already there you go! I'm soooo Proud of the Strides you've taken lately and to tell you the truth you've really impressed me, I had no idea you'd get so much done in such a little time setting out to do it. Bravo!!! I'm proud to be an Unlimited Loyalty Member! I am LOVING my Nexus One that come this morning and since I bought that full price that means I have my DISCOUnt to use on my brand new HD2!!! You really just solved my problem of which phone to get, BOTH of them. Have one now, eagerly awaing the next one! - D Great Exclusive to have btw.

It is really irritating that all the nice phones like HD2 come to the U.S. carriers many months after the rest of the world. Well, at least now we know for sure that it will be on T-Mobile.

One of the major reason i don't like verizon wireless is their phone sucks!!! AT&T, or T-mobile, or any GSM networks always have better phones! CDMA's phone, ugly!

dont get too exited, its still just a windows phone. a DROID is better than any windows phone.. period. Of course, if someone were to hack this and put on android, we might have a winner :) lol

the BEST phone is always a matter of opinion. at the end of the day one OS is as good as another OS. they all let you talk text and access the internet. a louis vuitton keepall and a goyard duffel bag both carry your over night items. if they do the same thing ultimately its an impass. i am not a tried and true winmo fan (i like my pro 2 more then my hero and best friends droid) i am an htc fan and the over lay makes it beyond easy to use. im so going to t-mo when this comes out.

Not to offend all you droid lover out there but android is not the greatest os out there and personally i still like my tried and true windows mobile. android is not a requirement for a good smartphone and i am tired of everyone getting so hyped up over it.

Yeah it definitely gets too much hype. The droid, I have to say, is a very nice phone but what the phone is and what OS it runs is really what it comes down to and personal preference. I've had several operating systems running on several devices. I've been from several dumbphones to sidekicks, to omnias, to iphones, to G1s, and now to the pre. For me, the pre's OS is more eye catching (especially with webOS [latest] update) than any I've had before which is why I chose to keep it.
