by Reads (66,953)

T-Mobile has re-released a system software update for its HTC HD2. This fixes some bugs on this high-end Windows phone.

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.

The update was first released a couple of weeks ago, but was pulled off of T-Mobile’s site when it was found to have bugs of its own. Now that these have been fixed, HTC HD2 users can one again install it.

The new system software for the HTC HD2 can be downloaded from T-Mobile’s website.

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
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.

T-Mobile’s version includes a whopping 576 MB of RAM and is bundled with a 16 GB microSD memory card.

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.
