It's difficult to imagine that T-Mobile is expected to launch the HTC HD2 very soon with Microsoft announcing Windows Phone
7 Series. It's not to say that the current platform on the HTC HD2 isn't a bad thing, but it places it in an awkward situation where consumers may be torn about purchasing the handset – possibly preventing them from doing so in light of the announcement. There have been many rumors that point to the possibility of seeing Microsoft's new platform on the HD2 down the road, but there hasn't been any concrete information pointing to it. During MWC, an HTC HD2 was shown running Windows Phone 7 Series – which is an astonishment to itself seeing that it can run the new software. Additionally it'll provide some optimism in potentially seeing HTC officially issuing a Windows Phone 7 Series upgrade for those who take the plunge with the handset. In the worse case scenario, which is the HTC HD2 getting denied the upgrade, it will require the hacking community to get it accomplished. HTC HD2 Specifications
