T-MOBILE USA TO EXCLUSIVELY OFFER HTC HD2

Arriving in the U.S. this spring, the HTC HD2 features a big, brilliant screen, blazing fast processor, and the celebrated HTC Sense™ experience

LAS VEGAS – January 6, 2010 –T-Mobile USA, Inc. and HTC today announced the HTC HD2 is expected to be available for the first time in the US exclusively from T-Mobile USA this spring. With its industry leading, high-resolution, 4.3-inch capacitive touch display and high-powered features, the ultra-thin HTC HD2 phone delivers content in a sharper, brighter and richer way.

The HTC HD2 comes equipped with the 1 GHz Snapdragon™ by Qualcomm mobile processor and utilizes T-Mobile’s high speed 3G network for a fast mobile data experience.

“T-Mobile and HTC have a long history of partnering to deliver innovative, cutting-edge products to T-Mobile customers,” said George Harrison, vice president, marketing product innovation, T-Mobile USA. “The HTC HD2 delivers a thin, sophisticated design and powerful features that we are excited to add to our dynamic smartphone line-up this spring.”

The HTC HD2 is the first Windows® phone with HTC Sense, a software experience focused on putting people at the center by making their phones work in a more simple, natural and personal way. With the HTC Sense experience, the HTC HD2 includes a variety of enhancements that expand and improve the overall phone experience. For example, the HTC HD2 includes a proximity sensor that is used to prevent false screen touches when the phone is picked up to answer or make a call, and a light sensor automatically adjusts the brightness of the display.

“Combining the intuitive user interface based on HTC Sense with an outstanding set of specifications and the powerful T-Mobile network, the HTC HD2 adds up to be not only an amazing device, but an amazing experience as well,” said Jason Mackenzie, vice president of HTC America. “The HTC HD2 is a Windows phone that has already been enthusiastically received in Europe and Asia and we are excited to bring this highlyanticipated device to the US, exclusively through T-Mobile USA.”

The HTC HD2 uses the first capacitive touch display on a Windows phone for the smoothest possible performance and to make viewing, zooming and resizing websites, Microsoft® Office files, PDF documents and pictures easier with just a simple pinching motion. The large capacitive display makes it easy to read and reply to Outlook® e-mails, edit a Word document or modify an Excel® spreadsheet right from the HTC HD2. Additionally, the HTC HD2 delivers advanced phone features including: GPS functionality, a Web browser, and an advanced 5 megapixel auto-focus camera with dual LED flash for capturing images, even in dim conditions.

    you guys were rocking the house!
    keep it up!!

    • just some dude

      I cant help but think once this drops around spring its going to feel real old real fast, plus the whole running win mobile.

      • Peter

        You just need to STFU, Tool!

      • ItsMichaelNotMike

        You truely are just some dude. To say that this device, with the specs it has (4.3″, Snapdragon) will be an old device at its debut?

        Sheesh… how many Snapdragon devices are YOU are of that are out there. LOL.

      • 9ooyan

        to be fair to just some dude, all devices, when they come out, are outdated….like they aren’t cooking some sweetness in a lab somewhere right now? c’mon, get your heads out of your arses. this phone was designs and built almost a year ago so it could be made available to you just around the corner…is the whole world taking crazy pills?

      • just some dude

        the nexus one is snapdragon, and the hardware is fine its the OS the will feel old

      • Scritz McGritz

        Agree with Just some dude. This device is gimmicky once you get passed the 4.3″ screen and the Htc sense it will begin to feel old. I don’t think the 1ghz snapdragon is going to make win mobile any better. I really wish the nexus one was a regular android phone. Why fuck with a good thing google. No one cares about you guys having complete control of the android os, we just want a android phone. Anyway yeah, peter stop being gay, Michaelnotmike “snapdragon” will become the standard very soon. You guys are all geeks, so why can’t you all get along.

      • PHONE FREAK

        Well everything may be a year old when it comes out…. BUT if somethings in the works right now it will be 1-2 years before it comes out. Which means everything and old and nothing is new…. 9ooyan just responding to you. I think that this is new since its coming out now in the US which means its NEW to the US. If a device is in the works or not released then its not out, it can’t be new till its out.

      • deeone

        who gives a shit, that thing will be around fro some time, windows 6.5 with snap dragon processors can not be that bad. for those of us who hate at&t with passion, this is great news even if it’s coming in summer. ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha .

      • 9ooyan

        @phone freak…yeah, you make 100% sense…i was just commenting on people always hyping phones into the best phone ever when technology already exists that outclasses that hardware. but yea, in terms of the market, options are definitely limited by what they sell us (and what we buy, i guess)

    • beenthere

      I already bought this phone via Clove (UK) and I’m using it on T-mobile USA now. While I don’t have 3G I find that I haven’t missed it yet. I can say without a doubt that you have to work to find any trace of windows mobile they’ve basically hidden it under a boulder and to find certain settings that I like to “tweek” I normally have to turn off sense UI to find the correct page/setting . The only time I do see windows mobile is when I’m reading an email and even then it’s 6.5 which looks better than classic 6.1. The 4.3 inch screen doesn’t get old and the combo of snapdragon and the wifi on this thing pull up web pages stink’n fast. The only thing that may make this handset old is Windows Mobile 7. The way they have integrated Facebook, twitter and YouTube on this thing makes checking updates a breeze, all I do is open my contacts and presto. Without a doubt this is the best handset I have ever owned or played with.

  • Deaconclgi

    This may be the phone that I extend my contract for. I am getting the N900 in 2 and a half weeks, I already have a N82 for my primary phone with a Wing riding shotgun runing Winmo 6.5.5 Tribu2U. This will be great! The N900 can push aside the N82 while the HD2 will retire the Wing. I am going to need another dual holster!

    • pdxduckfan

      Dual Holsters are GAY!

    • Cruisin4ABruisin

      Now there’s a user who understand why the N1 is $530. We need more consumers like you.

  • Dalton

    This year is going to be big for T-Mobile :)
    About time!

  • mike

    this will def beef up tmobile handset lineup

  • 18.4009

    I would love this phone but going from Android to Winmo…. yuck!

    • Scritz McGritz

      All I have to say is WORD!

  • texan

    not android not worth it.

  • tmogeek

    Wow! Am I lucky or what? I couldn’t get Google/TMO to process an upgrade for the N1. No big deal now. I can walk into a TMO store and avoid all that hassle. #WIN for T-Mobile. Goodbye android hello Sense UI.

    • 18.4009

      That is one thing I will agree with. Been on the G1 since release and I cant use any upgrade to get the Nexus….then this phone comes out and I can. Again a huge fail for Google/Tmobile.

      • z

        i’ll third that on the google/nexus FAIL.

      • Scritz McGritz

        Fourth it!

      • Dennis P

        5th it. Id rather have a nexus but Google screwed me

    • Oce

      +1more. Grandfathered family plan. “No you may not have a Nexus 1!”

      • Cruisin4ABruisin

        *Unless you buy a Nexus One unlocked for $530

        I’d make my font smaller as to not mess with your rant if I could.

  • J-Hop2o6

    damnn.. tmousa is really stepping it up for 2010.. i wonder how long the exclusivity will last tho.

  • js-1

    google got it wrong this is a super phone. i knew this 1 was coming but looking at the specs it was a tooo much of a phone. htc senses + windows kills the N1 and iphone UI.

    …im just sayin.

    • just some dude

      I was surprised to hear they are still making windows mobile phones. What about the Zune is that still around. LOL

      • ItsMichaelNotMike

        Well then you should not be posting comments with opinions about what phones are “old” before they even debut or the worthiness of WinMo 6.5 or whatever.

        You need to be up to speed on the technology and actually have used products and software before posting opinions.

        If you had actually used WinMo and HTC hardware you would know that the T-Mobile Touch Pro2 debuted in August 2009 and before that the TP2 was being used in Europe since June 2009.

        I base my comments on being a TP2 user since August 2009. And my TP2 has 6.5.1 and the HTC Sense user interface that will be on the HD2 when it comes to the U.S.

        You also would be aware that in the January 2010 Consumer Reports the magazine rated the TP2 number 1 on smartphone user satisfaction ratings.

        Do some research and actually use the products and quit with the echoing of what you read on the net.

    • deeone

      nexus one is done. atleast i can keep my old plan and still get this bad boy unlike the nexus, fuck google, fuck apple.

  • Sean

    WIN for TMo…IF they don’t have this puppy at $300+ subsidized…like the TouchPro2 at $349 (yes, I know you can get it cheaper elsewhere on upgrade, etc.

    I really was hoping to try out the Nexus One, but am not going to be forced to lose my unlimited loyalty plan (or shell out $530).

    Let’s go SUB-$250 price on this subsidized…then it’s MINE :) Happy Birthday to me!

    • Cruisin4ABruisin

      OMG OMG OMG… Sean… please, can I thank you? Please? Thank you. Thank you for being practically the first person I have read in the comments to say, “or shell out $530”. Everyone else keeps actin like they can’t get a N1 with their current plan. You can if you pay $530.

  • nutzareus

    If you hate Windows Mobile, quit bitching and get your Nexus One. Move on.

  • Cybersedan

    This is really interesting, with a phone like this available in T-Mobile stores, with multiple plans, it will be interesting to see if this doesn’t force more flexibility with N1 in terms of plans.

    This is a formidable competitor for the N1.

    • Cruisin4ABruisin

      EXACTLY!!!!!!!! COMPETITOR… as in, The N1 is NOT a T-mo phone and every phone T-mo sells themselves is a competitor to the N1. Another thank you. OMG, the smart peoples comment during the day apparently. Thanks.

  • Wilma Flintstone

    Awesome!!! I still want the X10 more but this device is definitely number three on my list:

    X10
    Motorola’s new concept device
    HD2

    Blah, The Nexus One is not even worth considering anymore. They just keep digging themselves into a deeper hole with that thing. Nexus One = Uber Fail.

  • Anthony

    This is A great phone.the specs makes me drool but its not android if it was n1 would have been in trouble but windows can’t compare sorry but its true.

  • Wilma Flintstone

    Only way I’d get this phone is if some way, I could get Android 2.1 on it. Great device but my next phone will be an android one. And now hearing that Rogers will be the exclusive seller of the X10 (man that sucks), The only thing I’m looking forward to now is that Motorola Concept phone.

    • umaluver

      since its an HTC, am i wrong in assuming that they will be able to slap some android 2.1 on there?

      • 9ooyan

        i’m 100% sure an android ROM will be cooked up on xda.developers in no time. this phone would be sweet with android 2.1. winmo 6.5….not so much (running a ROM of that on my HTC hermes right now and it’s meh at best.) although i did hear they are planning on upgrading this phone to Winmo 7 when it’s available in 2049.

  • JimBob

    This phone looks a lot more attractive after the Nexus One subsidy debockle. I wouldn’t mind a 4.3′ screen…

    • rossi

      I wouldn’t be surprised if you see another $350 HTC win mo device like the TP2. I wouldn’t complain if I was wrong though!

  • FILA

    ehhh, its still a WM no matter how you look at it, very nice, very not Android

  • Peter

    And look at all these Android fanboys, commenting hopeless, trashing Windows Mobile, and talking with a little knowledge!

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      That’s right. They don’t know what they are talking about. One of the HUGE benefits and fun things about Windows Mobile is that you can customize all aspects of the phone.

      On my T-Mobile Touch Pro2 I have been running cooked ROMs (custom operating systems) since September 1. The most recent has the HTC Sense user interface which is a hoot.

      WinMo on this phone? That’s going to be the hottest phone on the market. If people are saying that’s BS, it’s because they have not used a WinMo device running version 6.5.1 or better. And I hear WinMo 7 is even better.

      My TP2 is the best kept secret, on how great a device it is. Oh, and not that this is the best review, but Consumer Reports rated the Touch Pro2 the top smartphone on the market!

      And I say this coming from running a G1 with the Hero build. I like Android but it can’t compare with the level of customization of WinMo.

      • 9ooyan

        uhhh, what? how does rooting your phone and installing custom ROM’s = customizable OS? you can do the exact same thing on android handsets too, so what is the allure of winmo? i’m asking because i’ve been using 6.5 on my Hermes for quite some time now and although it can do everything a modern mobile OS needs to do (without looking too fancy doing it, i might add), it’s not very finger-friendly or customizable. the thing that gets me, though, is Microsoft’s snail-pace on updating their OS…i’m sure WinMo7 will be a huge leap forward, but will it really make that big of a splash when they release it? This particular market is shifting rapidly and it’s a damn shame MS didn’t keep up because they have made very important contributions to shaping the modern mobile platform imo.

  • ( I preface this with an apology for the abusive language that might offend some )…I hope the nexus one crash and burns with google at the wheel. The whole subsidy debacle is absolutely f*cked up. ( just my opinion). Google rolled shotgun with t- mobile in the beginning with the g1. Now that android has taken off , google seems to flip the bird at – t- mobile and it’s loyal G1 costumers. Die google, you and apple hand in hand . My htc hd2 will videotape the funeral. Don’t feel bad t- mobile costumers. The REAL “SUPERPHONE ” will arrive this spring. And google…f*ck you one more time.

    • just some dude

      Windows mobile can videotape, wow thats cool. where do you plug in the 8-track tape. By the way you ever get that job you applied for in Michigan?

      • just some dude says:

      • just some dude

        Im truly glad you you did Happy New Year dude.

      • just some dude

        Im truly glad you got that job Happy New Year dude.

    • kershon

      Agreed. Google acts like an Apple wannabe. This device can be had on payment plan and that will greatly help sales imo. I have em+ family plan with 4 lines. My main line is BB 9700 which I bought the day it was released, but I have another line just for me that I use an old phone on when I am out in the boondocks rattin around. I can see me getting this HD2 and put on my second line or after I get a hands-on and play around with it, I might just put my BB on ebay if this device is all it’s cracked up to be. My first smartphone was win-mo and I liked it so I don’t see any problems going back. Just get me a release date and a price cause I’m drooling bucketsfull over this phone.

  • john

    I think is a great thing that the HTC HD2 is coming to t-mo for t-mo and for the phone industry. Maybe this makes Google wake up and see how screwed Android still is(despite it being the best Platform…etc), and how their not-so-nice-try of coming into the smartphone industry is faring.

    • david

      Never had a problem with android. Now windows mobile…that’s a whole nother story. Had nothing BUT problems with winmo. I will stick with android.

  • randy

    lol, just imagine all those business guys dumping their iphones and switching to t-mo to get this phone!! Win Win Win!!

  • niididy

    This is VERY GOOD!!! Now I don’t have to have the Nexus One…

  • Dease Knuttz

    Great news, been waiting on this for a minute now, google can stuff that N1 up thier ass… hey google suck Dease Knuttz. Kudos to T-mob and Tmonews.

  • cj2185

    Oh man…I just got the Nexus One. The Nexus One would probably still be better because it’s android.

    • Peter

      I am sorry but Nexus One will not be better. There is nothing special about Android and in many areas its far behind Windows Mobile.

    • kershon

      Just keep tellin yourself that after the HD2 comes out. lol

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      Having used a rooted G1 with the Hero build installed and now the T-Mobile Touch Pro2 with a custom 6.5.1 ROM and the HTC Sense user interface (shell) I can tell you that for the past three months (since I installed the custom ROM) I do NOT miss Android.

      What I like about Android was the ability to download lots of free apps, instantly, and for free. And there were lots of fun and cool apps too. But that aside, I find I am enjoying and having more fun with the OS and shell I have on my TP2.

      It’s a matter of choice and opinion, for sure. I am just telling you my experience.

      For example, with the custom ROM I have on my TP2 I am running an application called “Manila TV.” That has allowed me to play FREE broadcast TV on my TP2. While I am still learning to set up the channels, I have been watching MSNBC (and it’s the same programming and broadcast that is running on my cable set, as I compared and confirmed. So it’s real TV).

      Can I do that on the G1? I don’t know about now, but back when I was using the G1 I was not able to get live TV.

      I also like the HTC Sense user interface, especially the animated weather on my home or today screen.

      The HTC Sense UI also converts the TP2 (and WinMo6.5) into a touch screen device instead of an OS that requires a stylus (this will be evident with the HD2 since it will not be coming with a stylus like my TP2 did).

      I think the problem is that many people who have not used the “new” WinMo 6.5 (and upcoming 7) and the HTC Sense UI, they are basing their criticisms on the old and outdated WinMo variations or just echoing what others do, which is to criticize WinMo just because that is the cool thing to do.

      Let’s face it, it’s easy to criticize and deride. But notice something, all those people do the same thing. They don’t cite specifics, they just echo insults and ridicule. They can’t be specific because they are not a WinMo 6.5+ and HTC Sense user. Their last experience with WinMo was probably back in the Win CE days, if that. LOL.

  • t-beat

    maybe we will get it with win mo 7?

    • just some dude

      maybe they will copy Androids OS for window mobile 7, Microsoft likes copying better OS’s

  • Bigg

    Alright somebody throw out some rumor price with a 2 year contract and show me where to sign.

  • B

    LMAO Now all the Windows cheerleaders are back in effect, and everything Google is a fail. Tech blogs are the shiz

  • teesquared

    OMG!!! I’m gonna get both the N1 and the HD2!!!

    • 9ooyan

      why? don’t you need one of your hands free to jerk-off?

    • Jose

      me too!! good idea…..

  • mrbill

    Sounds like a winner of a phone. I’m guessing T-MO will offer it to new subscribers for $99. If you are a current subscriber that is out of contract and upgrading from only a voice plan – $499, out of contract and you have a voice plan and a data plan – $649, in contract – $1299, on a “loyalty” plan – $1599, on a family plan – $2499 and you have to put your kids in foster care and divorce your wife and name T-Mobile as the beneficiary of your life insurance and your estate when you die.

  • David

    Unless T-Mobile and GOOGLE pull their heads out of their poop shoots, I will be saying SO LONG to Google and Android for this phone. The HD2 is incredible. Who cares if it’s WM 6.5. I don’t need the apps from Google and Android. I just want a top notch phone, sleek, sexy, super fast. BRING ON THE HD2.

    • just some dude

      What will you do when HTC stops making windows mobile phones like they said, because you know it sucks and all. thats sure gonna suck for you.

  • edgarock1

    that’s all i wanted to hear htc hd2 coming to t-mobile US what a great news!!!!!!!

  • Fujitsujeff

    X10 … that’s the next phone to get

  • Galen20K

    MAGENTA!!!! WAY to FUcking BRING IT!!!!!!!!!!! 2010 IS the Year of T-Mobile Folks if you didn’t know that already there you go!

    I’m soooo Proud of the Strides you’ve taken lately and to tell you the truth you’ve really impressed me, I had no idea you’d get so much done in such a little time setting out to do it.

    Bravo!!! I’m proud to be an Unlimited Loyalty Member!

    I am LOVING my Nexus One that come this morning and since I bought that full price that means I have my DISCOUnt to use on my brand new HD2!!! You really just solved my problem of which phone to get, BOTH of them.

    Have one now, eagerly awaing the next one! – D Great Exclusive to have btw.

    • Bart

      I wish there were more people like you here.

  • dsim91

    • kershon

      Yup. Me too I think. Sense ui, capacitive touchscreen, pinch to zoom, 4.3 screen, camera with dual flash. What more could I ask for. Date and price plz.

      • Crager

        Same here. This is what I’ve been waiting for since TmoNews broke it in October. I will be ready with full discount ready and pen to sign for two more years in hand.

  • kershon

    I kinda sorta saw the Nexus One cluster deal coming and I couldn’t get all that hyped up. BUT the hd2 is a different story. With this phone we don’t have to worry about anybody outside T-Mo dictating terms to us. And I am super excited about this phone. And it is definitely exclusive to our Magenta! Way to go T-Mo!! This is definitely going to be the year T-Mo is getting the recognition and respect it has and is earning and deserves.

  • playthecharade

    Im not gonna lie, ive been waiting patiently for the “next big thing” with Android, and now that the Nexus One is out im rather impressed. BUT, its not accessible to me in its current offering so im skipping it. the HTC HD2 looks really tempting now, and the whole WinMo thing isnt too big a deal to me, so way to go Magenta, job well done!

  • andrew

    the i well cost $300 or $350

  • isthatajoke

    this phone is gonna be the best on the market rumored to ship with windows mobile 7 or soon after the release in a update me personally i think microsoft is making sure windows 7 is superior in everyway with flash player and most likely there own app store..google can go kick rocks. i like competition it makes tech better……i don’t trust google they are getting 2 powerful and 2 much credit if you ask me HD 2 OWNS 4.3 SCREEN LOVE IT

  • Wow some of guys needs some help asap. Most of you yall said the shyt when the iphone 2g came out..f apple no one will buy it, they will fail. if you can’t get the phone now just fcking wait till it goes down, like the iphone did!!!

    Android all the way baby!!!!
    And if you not down with that I got 2 words for you “suck it”

  • efjay

    WM haters, Hello! Burns doesnt it? Going to hurt even more when this super phone gets WM7 and gets even more awesome! Enjoy!!

  • i have a feeling that win dis fone comes out, it’ll b just like the behold2, high priced…

  • Jose

  • vikingfan45

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS FUCK THE NEXUS(not to knock the android lovers) but i can’t wait to get my hands on this……… i was just bout to order the EURO one too LOL

  • what with the if it ran android crap. android is boring and cant touch windows mobile. some of yall need to actually look at windows mobile and stop saying if it ran android it would be better. Windows dominates the android they dont need an app store when the apps already out for years. stick with android if you want your same ole black menus. cant install apps on your sd card. cant change the look of your phone line a windows mobile phone.

  • Dennis P

    Windows Mobile sucks donkey nutz. Id get this and put android on it.

    • nutzareus

      Hey dick nutz, buy your Nexus One and STFU.

      • Cruisin4ABruisin

        yeah right, because all these jerks sit there and rag on WinMo then turn around bitch about having to spend $530 on the N1. Screw all these idiots.

        Lets face it: The people bitching the most are the ones who want shit for free. They know they can’t get a N1 because they don’t wanna spend $530 and now are upset that the kick ass phone they could get a discount on is a WinMo phone. Those people make me wanna be a Republican.

  • DK Brothers

    This will be my next device. Using a TP2 now. Had the G1 and I know I won’t be going back to Android until It allows you to save apps to the SD card out the box. Android is a cool OS but it remains me too much of the iPhone OS. Too… “toy” like. Seems like you’re just following the herd. Like you’re one of the sheeple.

  • DK Brothers

    Some you people are real phucking idiots. If you don’t like WM, please just STFU! I realize you like the pretty colors and the groovy shapes and can’t contemplate puzzles with more than 2 pieces – hence the reason you think Android is the best thing since the wheel. Yeah Android is cool and will be even better in the future but I can do things on my Touch Pro 2 that Android and yet to dream about yet.

    • just some dude

      LOL name one thing that i cant do on my android that you can do with your crap phone.

      • Just some dude’s dad

        Tomtom or Garmin on the Android? I bet you can’t do it. Go about 40 miles away from the city and see if your Google map guide you to the direction. What about live TV and there is lot of other. Android is for Dumb suckers like just some dumb dude.

  • Sgt. Cell

    Way to make it official T Mo. Spring can’t get here fast enough.

  • Izzo

    Looks like Tmo is bring in the new year in style. Can’t wait to have my N1 and HD2 come summertime.

  • SteveGowski

    Looking forward to this phone to the point where I am holding off on the N1. Have had the G1 since it released and still love it, except for its thickness of course, that part of it sucks. I really like the android platform but for me it is getting boring and the HD2 will be a nice change.

    If I am going to switch to a touchscreen keyboard it will have to be on a larger screen like this HD2. I think Google kinda shot themselves in the foot with the N1 having a small 3.7″ screen, especially since the android keyboard is still terrible. N1 users will need “Better keyboard” app for sure which isnt the end of the world but a hassle nontheless.

  • phonegeek

    first faster 3g then the nexus one ( even tho its multiplatform) now this and magenta has a MONSTA line up of phones this year and motorola is giving an update for the cliq to run 2.1……this is gonna be a good year indeed lol

  • kpereyra

    Anyone wknow if this will have UMA support?

    • eli_the_great89

      I highly doubt it will support UMA.
      There seems to be no signs of such a thing in the device’s Specs.
      But at least it’s WiFi certified :-)

  • js-1

    lol good god hella WM haters here. i understand that MS slacked off in the OS/UI game but the coming future they’ll be taking their place back. As others just sits back and watch. MS is too big of a giant.

    Apple will go back to the lonely hipster they are. when people’s mac crashes slows down. they’ll start to look for that deal.

    android like Windows will have their share of haters.

    IMHO…

    • Brian

      This is Android fanboy blog. What else did you expect? LOL

      • js-1

        common sense oh wait we’re americans…

    • just some dude

      Mac’s crash or slow down? LOL thats the funniest thing ive heard. Anyway this forum is all about T-mobile news and rumors, its not the peoples fault that it has evolved into an Android love fest. People talk about what they know to be the superior OS. Is it a coincidence that its all about Android around here? Nope!

  • Cruisin4ABruisin

    All I’m saying is… THIS is why people should get over their anger over the N1 already.

    T-mo has some good stuff coming, subsidized just for you all since no one seems to get why subsidies are bad, so stop the complaining.

    Don’t like the N1? Then let’s move on.
    Don’t like WinMo? Ok, there is still the Xperia 3.
    Or show some amount of patience and see what else comes. Thats all there is to it.

    I would take this or the N1, but hey, guess what? I’m a G1 early adopter which means I can’t get ANY of these phones subsidized until August… yet I don’t complain. I wonder whats wrong with me? I should be MAD and blaming the world! Fock You World!!

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      LOL. Let’s face it. The reality is is that there are fans of this, fans of that. And everyone likes to think that his or her opinion is the one that matters and that all others are fools who lack the vision and intelligence to see that the opinions of whomever are correct, and that his or her opinion is mistaken, misguided, or simply BS.

      It’s somewhat amusing to see all these people chiming in. We have to keep in mind that there are over 1 billion (yes, with a “b”) handset sales per year. Last time I checked not everyone is using one or two handsets or one or two operating systems.

      Nope, just like a#sh&les, everyone has his or her favorite phone and OS. So those people posting in here the unfounded and unsupported opinions that WinMo sucks or that Android is the best OS, or the iPhone is the phone to which all other handsets must strive to measure up to, well those are each 1 in one billion opinions. Does not matter.

  • SEFan

    I’m not really a WinMo fan, but…Wow! What a chunk of hardware! Just the 4.3″ screen and Snapdragon guts made me sit up to take notice. Anyone know whether this beast has a slide-out keyboard?

    Nexus One, now this. What ELSE could T-Mo be rolling out in 2010?!

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      No slideout keyboard. If you want that, the T-Mobile Touch Pro2 fits the bill.

      This, like the Nexus 1, are touchscreen only devices.

      I suspect that HTC is working on an HD2 version with a physical keyboard.

    • eli_the_great89

      No the HTC’s Touch and HD2 lineup don’t have slide-out keyboards thus far.
      Checkout the reviews and hands-on from Engadget.com. It’ll really give you lots of info and pics as well as videos from the editors using and reviewing the phone.

      Also there’s always the G1, Cliq or the Touch Pro2 that have physical keyboards.

      p.s. the 4.3 inch capacitive/multi-touch enabled display really lends for great functionality and better response from the screen when typing.

      • SEFan

        Thanks to eli and Mik,er Michael. I definitely said Michael :-) I don’t actually require a physical keyboard, and agree that with that much screen real estate the virtual keyboard should be very easy to use.

        I have friends that will disown me for this, but I might have to become the Artist now known as WinMoFan…

  • Lone Wolf

    One concern..Tmo’s pricing history. No doubt it will be priced higher than the Touch Pro2

    • JL

      Seriously..If this is truly exclusive to T-mobile, the price will probably be at least $350 with a 2 year contract. The only reason the Touch Pro2’s price was lowered after it was introduced was b/c Sprint and Verizon started to carry it at a lower price.

  • joekrivak

    whats the chances of getting android to run on the hd2???

    • JT

      Check out Xda developer site, they have ported Android on TP2 and TD2, that will work on HD2 without any problem and by the time T-Mobile releases HD2, they will have Android ready for it. Great site for WM lovers. I ported it on TD2 but removed it after a few days. I love WM.

  • ItsMichaelNotMike

    Anyone want to speculate on why the delay on the HD2 debut for the U.S., especially since it is already out in Europe?

    I bet you it is because Microsoft wants to put WinMo 7 on it. Remember that a while back MS said that in 2010 MS would, in conjunction with carriers, be releasing new and exciting “Windows Phones.” These would be phones with a Windows key that would signify the phone was up to MS WinMo 7 standards and provide a powerful mobile experience that users are now demanding.

    So it only makes sense that the HD2 U.S. release in spring 2010 is one of those Windows Phones that was mentioned in 2009. (At a symposium in Spain).

    As to WHEN they mean by spring 2010, I predict it will be April and here’s why.

    The talk all over the net was about the delay and when would MS bring out WinMo 7. Some people speculated December 2009. But some of us agreed with insiders who said it would be April 2010.

    Since Beginning of Time: April 2010 is spring (that is a given, as old as the hills on grandma).

    March 2009 – MS announced “Windows Phones” coming out in 2010 (phones powerful enough to use WinMo 7. Other phones cannot, such as my Touch Pro2).

    September 2009 – MS “announced” and or leaked that WinMo 7 will be ready in April 2010.

    January 2010 – MS and T-Mo announce the HD2 coming to T-Mo USA in spring 2010.

    April 2010 – T-Mo will debut the HD2 with WinMo 7.

    Price: Keyboard devices cost more than touchscreen only devices to make. The T-Mobile Touch Pro2 which has a keyboard was $550, $350 subsidized. The HD2 will be $450-$500 without subsidy; $299 subsidized.

    But T-Mo will see how the Nexus 1 does on sales at $530 unsubsidized. If sales are slow then T-Mo will adjust downward the prices for the HD2. But subsidized will still be higher than Google’s because I suspect T-Mo is giving Google a payment for each N1 that is bought with a T-Mo contract. So we won’t be seeing the HD2 subsidized price at the same level as through Google for the N1 ($180?)

    No way the HD2 is going to be sold subsidized that low, $180. Other than the TP2 this will be T-Mo’s nicest HTC phone offered to date. To sell it for $180, or even $250, no way.

  • jamel130@msn.com

    im pretty confident that the hd2 is gonna ship with windows mobile 7 or at least a couple a weeks…because steve balmer announced it why else would he sooooo excited to talk about this phone coming to t mobile and other phone…plus windows mobile 7 is suppose to come out around that time it only makes sense

  • jamel130@msn.com

    i meant to say a couple of weeks after the release …..and he talked about no other windows mobile 7 phone ……. plus htc russia said on twitter them selfs that it was coming soon to the hd 2 so it would only makes sense for it to be on it the day it drops in spring and windows mobile 6.5 already has a app stor its called the market place.,. im sure they are gonna update it and make it more pretty and then update there browser with adobe flash player make it faster and probably update there bing navagation and whatever suprise they got coming

  • carlos

    oh my god this or the nexus one. i have no idea what to do.

  • Todd

    I got $700 burning a hole in my pocket…..hurry up and release the HTC HD2. PLEASE!!!!

  • this bad boy will be able to suppor the new 21Mbs HSPA+ coming later on the year. It could also be used as a router. what else do you need after i get it, i might consider cancelling my ISP. :D

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      For those of you who don’t know what he means by canceling his ISP, he means what I am considering.

      With T-Mo we have the ability to tether our phones to a computer (notebook or desktop) and use the phone as a modem (or net connection) on the computer. In other words, one would theoretically not need an Internet provider at home (ISP or INTERNET service provider).

      I say “theoretically” because the holdup has been connection speed. We have not been able to get at least DSL speed from the phone connected to the computer.

      But T-Mo has been quietly upgrading the system so that we get FASTER than 3G speed, basically “4G” or better. If we can get 21Mbs (megabits per second) HSPA+ speed, that would be as fast if not faster than many home ISP/DSL/Internet connections.

      The logic goes, why does one need to have duplicate services, meaning multiple net connections. So that is why some of us are chomping at the bit (at least I am) to disconnect the home cable modem (for which I pay $45 a month).

      Ending duplication is not a new concept. I was one of the first, in year 2000, to get rid of my land line and rely only on wireless for home phone service. Now many people are wireless only (I think last year it went past 50%, meaning over half of U. S. homes are now wireless-only, meaning no land line).

      Another ancient example is the answering machine, where everyone had an answering machine at home. Eventually voice mail ended that concept.

      Then there is the cell phone. Slowly but surely people stopped using pay phones because we all had cell phones. (When’s the last time YOU used a pay phone. LOL).

      So this is an exciting time for us power users. The thought of using one device for EVERYTHING, including making phone calls, providing a net connection, playing movies from online services like Netflix, making video phone calls, etc.) well just imagine that for a moment. Coming home and connecting your phone to a dock that then wires the entire house for all of these services. It’s coming soon.

      This HD2 and T-Mo’s high speed service are just the beginning.

      That’s why to me Microsoft, WinMo 7, the HD2 with Snapdragon and T-Mo’s faster-than-anyone-else’s data line are… well… just awesome.

      • Jim

        all wireless providers have a 5gb cap on bandwith, if you used tmobile 21+ service for both you’d most likely hit it. Also the 21+ is the theoretical MAX speed, but you won’t come close to it on a regular basis PLUS you’d lose on the upload speed of a normal DSL or cable modem. Wireless tech will “get there” but i don’t believe it’s here yet

      • john

        Tmo’s “cap” is 10 GB, after that, you are “throttled” back to edge, after that, you have another 10 – 15 GB then you hit overage.

  • Ernie

    I AM SOOOOOOOO FN HAPPY!

  • MobilePaddy

    There isnt a chance in hell that this will debut with Win Mobile 7. We’d already be seeing leaked roms with it by now over at XDA etc. More that likely, it will debut with Win 6.5.3 (the updated, more capacitive friendly version of 6.5.1) with a promise of an upgrade to Win Mobile 7 later. IMO, Win Mobile 7 will debut in late Q3 of this year.

    Still, I’ll be buying the HD2, looking forward to it.

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      Absolutely valid point. You could be right, but from everything I have read MS has taken a LOT of flak and heat for not getting its new and wonderful OS, WinMo 7, on to the market.

      In response to the uproar (and criticism) MS has specifically said “April 2010.” The experts have said that any further delay will result in MS being left on the outside looking in.

      And when you think about it, what better device than the HD2 (with the required Snapdragon enabling it to run WinMo 7) to debut WinMo 7. I have not heard of any device in the works that would be a better handset to introduce WinMo 7 to the world.

      The HD2 is an amazing piece of hardware. I just don’t think MS would opt to use some other phone to introduce the long-awaited (too long) WinMo 7.

      Besides, if we step back and look at the bigger picture, it appears that MS was waiting for the HD2’s U.S. introduction to debut WinMo 7. In other words, when MS was saying “coming soon” what they were really saying in the back room was “Wait until the HD2 debuts.”

      It’s a grand scheme between HTC, MS and T-Mobile. I love it.

      And while your point is certainly a possibility, that we will get an HD2 with 6.5 and a promise of a free upgrade to WinMo 7, I think WinMo 7 is done, it’s ready for distribution. I think MS is simply “stalling” or waiting for the HD2 to debut.

      And why April? Well who the heck wants to debut a fantastic phone at the same time the Nexus One is all over the news. Nope, waiting till April is a smart move. MS and HTC can work out the bugs on the HD2, use its European customers as beta testers (LOL, sorry Europe but someone has to be the guinea pigs) and see how the public embraces the Nexus 1. And T-Mo can see how the public reacts to Google’s pricing and selling the phone unlocked.

      Needless to say, I hope my speculation is correct and that your’s is off. :)

      • MobilePaddy

        I wish I was wrong and that it’s coming in April. Lets take the best case scenario that it goes gold on March 1st: It will still take manufacturer’s like HTC typically 4+ months to turn that around to a version you can install.

    • Bryan

      Completely agree MobielPaddy, the leaked roms for it are 6.5. The HTC Russia tweet said that it was the only phone to be upgraded to 7, the Touch Pro 2 and Touch 2 will not be upgraded.

  • Camusa

    Just as a note with regards to functionality:
    I have been looking at “Android” phones for some time now and some others and there has been one major drawback for me: No sync up with MS Outlook.
    Some of you may scoff at this, but it is a very real problem for many working people.
    I use MS Outlook at Work and at home. I keep my calendars synched up.
    If I chose I could ask my IT dept to be kind enough to allow me access to the exchange server and get my work schedule (I am a therapist for a non-profit so I see patients all day as well as run a satellite office so a lot of constantly changing appointments) and I could then sync an android phone up to Gmail if I hook MS Outlook at home to Gmail…WHOA…what a pain. Not to mention the fact that it is against policy (HIPAA and otherwise) for me to keep my calendar on the web!
    WinMo will allow me to continue to use active sync (as I have with my Dell Axim…yes…I still carry one) and keep my stuff local.
    I am also a gamer and media junkie as well as into social networking and this baby has enough under the hood to satisfy all of that (I am still carrying my iPod though).
    So, While android and open looks good…it just does not meet the needs of the business place in far too many ways!

    • Mockerfab4

      I have been looking at “Android” phones for some time now and some others and there has been one major drawback for me: No sync up with MS Outlook.

      This is exactly why after 2 weeks i shipped my MyTouch back! Android is a great phone, but unless they resolve the MS sync issue, Android is useless to me. Apparently there’s an app you can buy in the Android store for $20 that does MS Sync, but honestly, this should be available straight out of the box. $20 is steep for an app that most smartphones have available out of the box.

      This phone does look awesome. I’m not a WM fan, but the more I read about this phone, the more I’m thinking this may be the one that makes me get rid of my 1G iPhone, finally! Looking forward to getting more info on launch date and pricing.

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      Spot on. The reasons you state are the only reasons why MS is still in the game. If WinMo did not have the connection with Outlook and other Office applications, no one would have had a reason to stick it out with MS over the past five years.

      To be sure, MS’s WinMo OS has survived as being the OS for business while other operating systems are for fun and games.

      MS Office is the most widely used and most popular office software. The ability of WinMo to sync with all that was the only reason to stay with MS.

      Sidenote: You still carry a Dell Axim. LOL. I have recently started to clean out my basement. Found my Dell Axim X50v, complete with two spare batteries, dock, cases and even some old games that came on CF chips (including PacMan.) All in excellent condition since right after I bought it the “PDA phones” started coming out so I stopped using the Dell.

      Truth be told, I like that Dell. It’s an impressive device. I remember when I played movies on it and accessed the Net. That was a big deal back then.

  • DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THIS PHONE WILL SUPPORT 21MBPS HSPA+???

      No, it only supports HSPA 7.2Mbps

        “DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THIS PHONE WILL SUPPORT 21MBPS HSPA+???”

        If T-Mobile is really going to have HSPA+21 up soon, I have to believe they will have HTC put add the chip set for it to this device.

  • Oce

    I don’t understand why HTC put a 65k color display on such a top-of-the-line device. Why not a amoled sceen like the N1? Some of the first color display phones had 65k colors. Doesn’t seem like a big deal til you begin to see the color banding; which is what really annoyed me about my tp2. Major disappointment. I was all about it at one time but I just may wait to see what’s next.

I’m holding out on buying a new phone until I get to test drive the HD2 in stores. :-) But from the pics and description…I think that’s the phone I’ve been waiting for.

HD 2 Owns End Of STory…..

    • isthatajoke
    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      Needless to say, but I will, I agree with your post 100% (see my post up above).

      And I would like to add one more reason why I think the HD2 will be debuting with WinMo 7 in April:

      Companies are mum on product debuts, except with what I call faux leaks, that are not really leaks but distribution of info by marketing and company big shots to the little fish out there. (I assume people know this because it would take very little time to find the people who leak information. Google did it in a funny, but typical way, with a few blurry shots of the N1, then one clear shot, then a fuzzy YouTube video (a company Google owns and if the “leak” was not authorized they could have torn down the video, at the minimum), then with specs, and finally pricing).

      So I expect that in late February we will start to see the HD2 appearing with the WinMo 7 OS (some blurry shots of the screen). Then in March we will see “leaked” marketing materials, followed by a few videos, and the biggie, a hard to read T-Mobile price list (supposedly meant for store managers, but really meant for us).

      If we see that pattern then we know that the HD2 with WinMo 7 will be out in April-May 2010.

      While this is all speculation on my part, take note that this is how it has happened with every handset launch.

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      Well see my posts to confirm I agree with you 110%.

      Another way of saying what we are saying is that this appears the “perfect storm” of product launches.

      The OS that needs to debut, but needs a hot, new powerful phone to “attach itself to.”

      The hot new phone that is set to debut around the time the OS is rumored to debut.

      No other phones set to come out at the time, so all the attention can focus on the hot new phone with the hot new OS.

      The carrier who needs some hot new phones in the lineup because the other phones were not… hot.

      And everyone in cahoots (The OS maker, phone maker, and signal maker… all in the sack making smartphone babies).

      • Mockerfab4

        here, here! No Sync up with Outlook, no way! Not a fan of WM, but it’s better then the other Tmo offerings. The HD2 looks sweet. Probably the first phone in a loooooooong time that Tmo has put out that I’ve been excited about!

  • I have been waiting and waiting to see which Smartphone I would be buying last year to this year. I was juggling between The HTC Nexus One, HTC HD2, Nokia N900 and the Sony Ericsson Xperia x10. After waiting and waiting things came to light that T Mobile wouldn’t be getting some of these phones like the N900 and the Xperia X10. Now debating between the Nexus one and the HD2. I was going to go with the Nexus One since it came out first. When I called T mobile I found out they wouldn’t actual be carrying the phone but rather Google. T Mobile told me I did qualify for a discount but on Google’s website they denied me. A friend of mine has the Nexus One and needed some questions answered and T Mobile who has the best customer service redirected him to HTC and Google and it got him know where. With all this said and done. I’m going to wait for the HTC HD2. I have a wonderful relationship with T-Mobile and have been a customer since 2003. I would rather deal with T Mobile customer service anytime over anyone else. I’ll be waiting a few more months for the HD2 which basically has the same spec. as the Nexus One minus the android os.

    The high resolution 4.3 inch 800 x 480 capacitive display, 5 Mega-pixel auto-focus camera with flash and virtual QWERTY Keyboard which should work great on its large multi-touch screen coupled with its thinner design than an iPhone makes it an awesome device. The same applies to its Qualcomm’s new 1Ghz Snapdragon mobile processor which should deliver enough power for a great responsive and smoother end-user experience. The phone also offers fast viewing, zooming and resizing for browsing Internet, Microsoft Office documents, PDF documents and pictures. In addition to this, the new HTC Sense for Windows phone which is designed on the three principles – Make it Mine, Stay Close and Discover the Unexpected provides finger-friendly and rich high-end user experience than any of the available Windows phone in the market. HD2 also features a digital compass, a 3.5mm jack plug, proximity and ambient light sensor, the Opera Mobile browser, media player, RDS radio and the GPS-friendly NaviPanel software program. HTC have also slipped in some great connectivity features too, with tethering via Bluetooth and USB, plus a Wi-Fi Router system, where the phone can act as a Wi-Fi router, providing wireless data to your PC and other wireless gadgets.

      The last I checked, the N900 is available for the T-Mobile network.

    T-mobile still might get the nokia n900 subsidized and the xperia x10 later this year if nokia and t-mobile was smart they would give them the n900 subdized and sell it because more people would pick up the mameo platform in the united states.it only makes sense..They could give andriod a run for its money if they play they cards rights mameo is more open then andriod…me personally im getting the Nokia n900 or the HD 2 im gonna wait until like april to buy either then we will have more info on windows mobile 7….and Nokia N900 getting cool updates.including adobe flash player 10.1 to coming to both

    Yes the N900 works with T-Mobile’s network but it’s not offered by T Mobile with a subsidized price. Like isthatajoke said it would be smart and beneficial as the mameo os platform would give android a run for its money if T-Mobile picked up the N900. I refuse to pay $500 or more for an unlocked phone.

    I’ll wait a few months for the HTC HD2 or see if T mobile gets the Nokia N900 in the near future which I doubt.

    I’m pretty sure that I have seen that 7 is delayed until November or December 2010. And with winmo and sense ui this device is crap

    It’s interesting that Google admitted at CES that the Nexus 1 design is for one thing only, to make a phone that makes getting on the Net easy and an enjoyable experience.

    And why Google wants to do that is to sell advertising. (The power of Google’s Net advertising is being displayed by the millions of Nexus 1 ads plastered on what seems to be every website on the planet. I see that same Nexus 1 graphic just about everywhere I go on the Net.)

    So I expect that what we will see in the future from Google is not phones designed for business, etc., but instead to sell us what I herein declare a new category of phone, an:

    Ad Phone

    So there are cell phones, smartphones, Windows Phones, and now Google’s Ad-Phones.
