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.
We’ve already gotten some great feedback from the official HTC HD2 demo video, so I’m sure you guys will love this. PDA.pl got a chance to play around with the new handset and shot a pretty nice video which shows off the new Sense UI on Windows phone (Microsoft is no longer calling it Windows Mobile). The 4.3” capacitive touch screen works like a charm and the HD2 is by far the fastest Windows phone device I have ever seen.
Note: half way through the video (4:25) they show off the Peep Twitter tab. Guess who HTC is following on Twitter. No, it’s not us, but our good friends over @AndroidGuysCom.
I’m not sure about you, but I think HTC has finally brought sexy back to Windows Phone on the new HTC HD2. The video above shows off some of the new HTC Sense integration, cutting out a lot more of the core Windows Phone while delivering a more integrated user experience. Enjoy.
It’s been a long time coming, but today HTC has finally announced the all new HTC HD2. We’ve known this handset as the Leo for quite some time now and have been referring to the HTC custom UI as TouchFLO 3D, but HTC wants to clear a few things up. The new HD2’s UI is now called Sense, just like the Sense we have come to know and love on the HTC Hero. HTC is calling Sense " customer experience focused on putting people at the centre by making their phones work in a more simple, natural and personal way." The HTC HD2 will run on Qualcomm’s new 1Ghz Snapdragon mobile processor, with Windows Mobile 6.5, and will have a 480 X 800 WVGA 4.3-inch capacitive touch display. The HD2 will be available later this month in Europe and will be released to other markets before the end of the year.
Full press release and images after the jump.
The upcoming HTC HD2 (aka the Leo) has already gained a huge fan following despite the fact that it has not been officially announced yet. Now, the HTC HD2 is appearing the O2 UK’s upcoming catalog. I’m personally a little confused since the catalog page clearly is showing two different designs for the handset. It’s only a subtle difference at the top of the phone, but I’m sure someone at O2 is going to get an earful once they realize the mistake.
The O2 version of the HTC HD2 was initially expected to launch on October 12, but recent speculation is now leaning more towards October 26. I’m sure O2 will have quite a few customers waiting to get their hands on the HD2 with its 4.3 inch WVGA screen, 5MP camera, and Snapdragon processor. We’ve got the full catalog page after the break.
A few days ago I posted a post with information about a new Twitter app that will be included on the HTC HD2. At the time, these was some speculation debating the authenticity of the Twitter tab. A few bloggers believed that it was not developed by HTC, but rather one of the incredibly talented developers on xda-developers. Now, a few shot videos have surfaced that show off new features of TouchFLO 3D, including the Twitter tab and animated wallpapers. We’ve seen the animated wallpapers in action before with animated an animated weather background.
