HTC HD2 announced, specs sheet makes geeks' hearts shiver

HTC logoIt's finally here folks! After dozens of leaks over the past two weeks the HTC HD2 is finally officially revealed coinciding with today's launch of Windows Mobile 6.5. From where we stand the wait was more than worth it - the device will certainly top the WinMo food chain. Most of the rumors received turned out true but there are some nice surprises too.

The HTC HD2 is powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU and sports the nice 448 MB of RAM. Running on Windows Mobile 6.5 it relies on a 4.3-inch display of WVGA resolution for its operation.

As if that wasn't exciting enough, the HD2 is also the first WinMo handset to feature a capacitive touchscreen, instead of the resistive units we have seen so far - perhaps that was exactly what was meant by Windows 7 ready in the yesterday's leak.

The HTC Sense UI, which comes preinstalled on top of the OS, is obviously here to iterate on the popular TouchFLO 3D and should make sure that all interface elements are large enough to be used with fingers only.

The network connectivity capabilities of the HTC HD2 are splendid, the handset coming with quad-band GSM support and dual band UMTS with 7.2 Mbps HSDPA and 2 Mbps HSUPA. Wi-Fi and GPS are also on board as well as the usual suspects Bluetooth and USB.

On the multimedia front the 11mm-slim HTC HD2 has a 5 megapixel autofocus camera and a standard 3.5mm audio jack to offer. The list of nice features of this powerhouse is completed by a built-in accelerometer and proximity sensor.

The HTC HD2 will be available later this month with selected operators across Europe, before rolling out to other regions in the coming months. The company is however yet hesitant to reveal more details about its pricing but rumors have it that it will be selling for around 650 euro (Vodafone Spain) or 499GBP in the UK, which is around 540 euro.
