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.

A while back, there were a few reports that indicated that the HD2 would not have multi-touch support for Internet Explorer. This seemed a bit reasonable since Windws Mobile technically does not support multi-touch at all, so why should one of its apps? Those initial reports were based off of an early build of the HD2′s ROM, but now we have a new video which shows multi-touch support in action, even in IE.

If you’ve been following the HTC HD2 (or the Leo), HTC finally released details on the handset last week and we know now that November 11th is the launch date for Europe. Just a few minutes ago, David from TmoNews just released the image above showing that the HTC HD2 will soon be residing on T-Mobile’s 3G network. A lot of HTC fans were a bit disappointed last week when HTC only announced the phone for Europe. They later followed up with a few more details claiming that the phone could come state side in the beginning of 2010. Unfortunately TmoNews does not have any more details other than what’s in the image. Unless T-mobile undated the current Pro2 to Windows Mobile 6.5, the HD2 could be the first for the T-Mobile network. the HTC HD2 would also be the first Snapdragon powered phone to hit the U.S. market.
We’ll have to wait this one out a bit to get more news. Lets just hope T-Mobile realizes that we don’t want to spend $300+ for a Windows Mobile phone.
