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.

    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!!!!

  • http://www.myspace.com/wickednbeats deftonic86

    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

    WOOOO WHOOO!!!!!WOOOO WHOOO!!!!!WOOOO WHOOO!!!!!WOOOO WHOOO!!!!!WOOOO WHOOO!!!!!WOOOO WHOOO!!!!!WOOOO WHOOO!!!!!WOOOO WHOOO!!!!!WOOOO WHOOO!!!!!

    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+???

    • Kickstar13

      No, it only supports HSPA 7.2Mbps

      • DK Brothers

        “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.

    This is a major way to start the new year. First Hspa 7.2 mbps, then nexus one now the hd2. If tmo can get the xperia and the n900 as well then its game over

  • 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.

  • Voodoo Child

    WOW! I cant wait!

  • Flgirll

    Isn’t that the same time that Windows Mobile 7 is supposed to come out?
    I still have a Tmo MDA phone that’s on it’s last leg. 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. Although it would be a dream if it had an ultra thin physical keyboard….a girl can dream though. lol

    and analyst expect a spring launch before the new iphone comes out. me personally i think they have been done with windows mobile 7 for a long time….think about it they been working on it sense the iphone came out google and palm both made new operating systems sense then and palm has way less people to work on there operating systems and way less money…even LG said at Ces that they have windows 7 mobile on some handsets already and its coming soon…i have also did some research all the reports of htc hd 2 coming out in the US not one report says thats its running windows mobile 6.5 they all just say windows mobile…sounds fishy to me plus htc is known for updating devices and i doubt that it won’t launch with windows mobile 7 or at least get the update soon there after because windows mobile 7 is suppose to be released around that time anyway and i doubt htc is gonna be running that old 6.5 with windows mobile 7 out lets be real..Microsoft knows what they have to do to stay in the game you don’t even need the windows 7 on the htc hd2 it owns without it but with it..thats just the icing on the cake..even steve balmer himself said windows 7 should of been released already.they are probably just tweaking the system to make it look sexy like the windows mobile 7 operating system. 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).

        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

    @ M
    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

  • manolo

    So any ideas what this puppy will cost?

    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.
