T-Mobile USA has had great difficulties keeping the HTC HD2 in stock at its website, but this highly sought after model is once again available. This is good news for those interested in the most powerful Windows phone on the market today.
This high-end smartphone debuted just a few weeks ago, but hasn’t actually been available for much of this time because demand is exceeding supply. The HD2 first went on sale from T-Mobile on March 24, and sold out on the first day. About a week later this carrier got in a fresh supply, but sold out of these in a couple of days.
If this trend holds, anyone wanting this product should order it now, as it will likely be out of stock again in the near future. To make a purchase, go to the T-Mobile website.
An 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 smartphone running this OS. This is also the first Windows Mobile smartphone with a capacitive display that supports multi-touch.
Even without its cutting-edge display, the HD2 would be among the most advanced smartphone running Microsoft 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 Windows Mobile’s standard collection of mobile apps: Outlook, Office, Media Player. Opera Mobile is the default web browser.
The HTC HD2 sells for $200 with a two-year contract, or $450 without a contract.
Ane willing to trade in a working iPhone can lower this price by $100.
