UPDATE (June 15, 2010): This one-day deal has expired, but on June 19, 2010 T-Mobile customers will be able to buy any T-Mobile phone for free with a new Family plan. For more information:
T-Mobile is offering a special one-day deal on the HTC HD2. This very high-end Windows phone normally sells for $200 with a two-year contract, but today only can be purchased for half that.
Although T-Mobile is offering the HD2 for $100 with a contract, the price without a contract remains unchanged at $450.
This smartphone can be ordered from T-Mobile’s website or in its retail stores.
Overview of the HTC HD2
What sets the HD2 apart from the competition is its 4.3-inch WVGA touchscreen, the largest yet on a Windows phone. This is also the first Windows Mobile device with a capacitive display that supports multi-touch.
Even without its cutting-edge screen, the HD2 would be among the most advanced smartphone running Microsoft’s Windows Mobile 6.5 Pro operating system, thanks to its 1 GHz processor.
Replacing Microsoft’s standard user interface is the latest version of HTC’s custom UI that has a focus on giving consumers easy access to the features they use most, as well as making this smartphone easy to use with a fingertip.
The HD2 doesn’t include a hardware keyboard, but that’s about the only feature it lacks.
Naturally, it has mobile broadband (7.2 Mbps HSDPA), and includes Wi-Fi b/g and Bluetooth 2.1. It is also able to act as a Wi-Fi router for another computer.
It also offers a 5 megapixel camera with auto-focus, GPS receiver, 1,230 mAh battery, and a 3.5 mm headset jack.
This HTC device comes with Microsoft’s standard collection of mobile apps: Outlook, Office, Media Player. Opera Mobile is the default web browser.
