Remote Desktop Mobile has always been a great tool on Windows Mobile phones. I’ve used is quite a few times on some of my older devices to access my home PC. The beauty of Remote Desktop Mobile is that you can control your PC from your phone just as if you were sitting right in front of it. HTC’s new HD2 brings another element to the table that no other Windows Mobile phone currently offers multi-touch support. If you’re one of the lucky people who can afford the HD2, you’ll be pleased to know that HTC was able to incorporate multi-touch support into Remote Desktop. Multi-touch coupled with the HD2’s 480 X 800 WVGA capacitive screen, and 1GHz processor take the experience of Remote Desktop to a whole new level. Check out the video after the jump.
Ladies and gentlemen, we present to you a splash screen! Last time we saw something like this was over a month ago when HTC relaunched their U.S. website. I’m sure we all want a NEW handset to pop up on the site and blow our minds, but let’s not get carried away. The main image on the splash screen is named “HomeBanner_HTC_HD2_Video”. I’m not the brightest person on the planet, but i think this might have something to do with the HTC HD2 coming to the U.S. market. HTC has already confirmed that they have plans on launching the HD2 in the U.S. in early Q1 of 2010.
Even though all evidence is pointing towards the HD2, I’m sure a lot of people would love to see some information pop up about the HTC Dragon which is expected to launch before the end of the year on Verizon as the HTC Passion. Let’s keep our fingers crossed. Who knows, we may see two new handsets listed on HTC’s site when the splash screen comes down.
If you’ve been waiting to get you greasy fingers all over the HTC HD2’s 4.3 inch capacitive touch screen, tomorrow might just be your day. Vodafone UK will be selling the new HTC HD2 starting tomorrow. The new handset will be running on Windows Mobile 6.5 and should be available for FREE on a new contract. The whole FREE things is purely my own speculation based on Vodafone’s current lineup of FREE handsets (the $800+ SONY Ericsson SATIO is free so I don’t see any reason why the HD2 wouldn’t be). The HTC HD2 is also running Sense for Windows Mobile. It’s really just the latest version of TouchFLO 3D with graphics from Sense, HTC Peep for Twitter, and a few other enhancements like animated wallpapers. Anyways, the HTC HD2 is probably the most amazing Windows Mobile phone ever to be released so you’d be crazy to pass it up.
Many of us are still waiting out turn to play with HTC’s new HD2, but that has not stopped some from taking their experience with the HTC HD2 to a whole new level. We all have small longing inside of us to see what makes things tick, so we present to you a full gallery of what makes up the new HD2. Xda-developers has posted up over 20 images of the innards of HTC’s newest handset so that you don’t have to break out your tool kit when you get your hands on one.

You know it’s going to be a good day when you wake up to see a note from HTC in your inbox. We’ve suspected for a while that HTC would be bringing the HTC HD2 over to the states, but now HTC and Microsoft have officially make the announcement.
We wanted to give you a heads up that HTC and Microsoft have just confirmed that the much anticipated HTC HD2 will be coming to the U.S. early next year.
If you didn’t already know, the HTC HD2 is running on a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and features a 4.3" capacitive touch screen, HTC Sense, 5MP camera (with flash), 3.5mm headphone jack, all on top of Windows Mobile 6.5. From what we’ve seen, T-Mobile could be the first carrier to land the HD2 here in the United States, but we’ll have to wait and see how things pan out. I’m really hoping that the HD2 will get just as much love as the Pro2 did, making it on to all four major U.S. carriers.

The new HTC HD2 is the most exciting new Windows Mobile handset in years, but there’s a lot of confusion surrounding it as well. T-Mobile UK has just launched a splash page, announcing that the new HTC HD2 will be available on their network some time this month (speculation indicates that it could be launched on November 11th). But there’s something terribly wrong with the page. The first thing I noticed is that the image they put up is of last years HTC HD, not the HD2, the screen size is listed as 3.8" instead of 4.3", and then there’s a dubious reference to the Android Market.
I’m sure the web guys over at T-mobile UK were simply given the wrong information and put the stuff up without really looking at it. It’s the internet, mistakes happen. Though I’m sure that a lot of peopel would be interested in a Windows Mobile 6.5 HD2 that could use Android apps
There have been quite a few videos of the HTC HD2 already, but the first "official" unboxing of a demo unit has finally made its way on to YouTube. The video shows off a plane white and green box (the green matches the new HTC logo quite nicely) and some if its content. It’s noted during the video that the box is not the finaly packaging, but I could see HTC using the green and white color scheeme and simply adding more details to the box.
