T-Mobile is once again sold out of the HTC HD2. This high-end Windows phone debuted just a couple of 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.
As it stands now, this smartphone is listed as “Temporarily Out of Stock” on T-Mobile’s website. It is not known when this carrier will get in its next shipment of units.
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.
