HTC announces HD2 with large capacitive display and 1GHz processor

HTC announces HD2 with large capacitive display and 1GHz processor

Even though I am quite disappointed with Windows Mobile 6.5 that doesn't mean that I still don't like Windows Mobile devices and personally find my T-Mobile Touch Pro2 with Spb Mobile Shell 3.5 (see my review) to be one of the best devices I have in my collection. I was excited to read the HTC press release announcing the HTC HD2 that runs Windows Mobile 6.5 with their HTC Sense UI (something I LOVE on the Sprint HTC Hero) on a huge 4.3 inch capacitive touchscreen display.

Palm just recently launched the Treo 800w touch-screen Windows Mobile 6.1 device, but quickly follows it up with the Treo Pro that has a definite HTC look and feel. This is the slimmest Treo yet and still includes WiFi, Bluetooth, HSDPA, GPS, and a large capacity battery. Can Palm continue to survive with devices like the Treo Pro? Take a look at these photos and check out my review to help you make a decision.

There hasn't been a lot of excitement in the Windows Mobile space for quite some time, but the HTC HD2 pushes the limits of the OS with a capacitive display, multi-touch support, Windows Mobile 6.5 improvements and more. The device's main distinguishing feature is the large 4.3 inch 800x480 pixel resolution display and slim form factor.

T-Mobile was the first carrier in the US to launch a Google Android device with the T-Mobile G1. HTC and T-Mobile partnered up again to release the myTouch 3G Slide with a similar form factor. The Slide has some high end specifications and functionality, but still is more of a mid-tier device when you look at high end devices like the Google Nexus One.
