T-Mobile USA has released a small software update for its HTC HD2 that fixes a few problems. The new version of Windows Mobile 6.5 Pro for this high-end smartphone is more stable than the previous one.
The carrier describes the changes in the update in vague terms, simply saying that it offers “device stability and performance improvements”. In addition, it now includes T-Mobile’s MyAccount application.
Users should back up their device before installing this upgrade, as doing so will erase everything on the smartphone and return it to a “Factory Fresh” state.
Overview of the HTC HD2
This very high-end Windows phone sports a 4.3-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen and 1 GHz Snapdragon processor.
It runs Microsoft’s Windows Mobile 6.5 Pro, but has the new version of HTC’s custom user interface layered on top.
Naturally, the HD2 includes mobile broadband (7.2 Mbps HSDPA), plus it includes Wi-Fi b/g and Bluetooth 2.1.
The device also includes a whopping 448 MB of RAM, an 5 MPx camera with auto-focus, a microSD card reader, GPS receiver, 1,230 mAh battery, and a 3.5 mm headset jack.
