CES 2010: HTC HD2 coming to T-Mobile this Spring

Summary: You all know how impressed I have been with the HTC HD2 Windows Mobile device and the only issue I have with it has been support for 3G in the US. We knew that HTC was going to bring it to a major US carrier in 2010 and tonight Steve Ballmer will talk a bit about the HD2 coming to T-Mobile USA in the Spring. As a T-Mobile customer I couldn't be more excited, but after just buying the Nexus One I will have to think for a few minutes before jumping on the HD2. Regular readers know I won't be able to resist the HD2 on T-Mobile and we'll have to see what price and firmware it launches with.

You all know how impressed I have been with the HTC HD2 Windows Mobile device and the only issue I have with it has been support for 3G in the US. We knew that HTC was going to bring it to a major US carrier in 2010 and tonight Steve Ballmer will talk a bit about the HD2 coming to T-Mobile USA in the Spring. As a T-Mobile customer I couldn't be more excited, but after just buying the Nexus One I will have to think for a few minutes before jumping on the HD2. Regular readers know I won't be able to resist the HD2 on T-Mobile and we'll have to see what price and firmware it launches with. There have also been rumors of the HD2 supporting a Windows Mobile 7 upgrade, but that is still pretty wild speculation at this point.

I do hope that T-Mobile and HTC are able to launch this device with WM 6.5.3 that adds a lot in terms of touch optimization and customization of the Start screen. If not, then I sure hope it is quickly upgraded after release. Is this the type of device that will have people leaving another carrier to get? Do you plan to buy a T-Mobile HD2?

  • The HTC HD2 is not so good

    With respect, I don't think the HTC HD2 is a very good phone.

    A lot of reviewers keep it for 1 day and say its great. Problem is, they're not using it as fully as someone who uses it long term for a particular purpose.

    They don't get to see the older WinMo apps (which many businesses require) that don't work on a capacitive screen. They don't notice a lot of the bugs that become more apparent with long term use.

    Some of the bugs are on every unit, and still haven't been fixed, like the 'pink aura' defect that affects every video made with this phone.

    And the Snapdragon's 720p video hardware has been disabled by Windows Mobile, which can't recognise it.

    Why recommend this phone, when similar Android phones don't have these problems?

  • HD2 & Sprint

    Does this mean that it is finally clear that the HD2 won't be coming to Sprint?
