T-Mobile HD2 Receives Unboxing Treatment


The last time we saw the HTC HD2 getting unboxed was all the way back in October 2009 with some magical trance music.  Now, the guys over at BGR have scored some unboxing snapshots of the highly anticipated handset with T-Mobile branding and all. Whether it’s releasing the 23rd or the 24th remains a mystery.   Hit the jump for additional unboxing snapshots courtesy of BGR.   Don’t forget to leave your thoughts in the comments!

    • pdxduckfan

      That was the worst, most anticlimactic unboxing I’ve EVER seen……That said….I can’t friggen wait!!!

      • beej

        Agree. Lame. But SO exciting!

  • T.P.

    Unreal! I’m sold!!

  • aLb3Rt

    nice of tmobile to include a gel skin. hopefully it has a nice quality/material gel skin. i would absolutely put 1 on that baby once I get my hand on it! drooolllliiiinnnngggggg………….

  • enjoijams

    Is that a silicone skin? Does it come with a silicone skin? If so, very nice!

    • Alex

      Yes the Gel case is included with the HD2.

    • Blacksheep427

      yep, looks like it does.

  • someone build me a time machine i need this phone today!!

  • ItsMichaelNotMike

    Excuse me, I have to go to the restroom and clean up, I’ll be right back.

  • ItsMichaelNotMike

    Wow, that box looks 110% better than the box my Touch Pro2 came in. The TP2 box was about the same quality as a prepaid phone from K-Mart.

    • johnlove

      LOL…that’s too funny!

  • Mockerfab4

    So frackin’ cool. Love it!!!!! Can’t.wait!


    This $150 in my pocket i got from selling my g1 is ready to go towards this beast.

    • justme

      the phone is really sick.I played with a demo phone at my local tmo store it was unreal…well worth the money

    • DavidB

      You got took, or you were very nice…I got $200 on ebay on a BuyItNow less than 2 hours after listing it!

      • Twitch110

        Snneariously? Could i get that much for my crap mytouch? The first edition.

  • ItsMichaelNotMike

    Here is the box my TP2 came in. I was very surprised that the Touch Pro2 had such cheap packaging.

    That HD2 box is uber cool.


    • Blacksheep427

      that’s sad. I’ve heard of not wasting on a package, but that’s too far. ;( your phone deserves better, ya know.

  • tato22

    I can’t freaking wait no more hurry up

  • waiting4hd2

    Thats awesome….Nice to see a gel skin included with it….

  • ItsMichaelNotMike

    OK, how can you tell the real fans of this phone, we keep starting at these pics over and over and over and over. Looking at every detail, over and over and over and over again.

    Then we go do some chores and come back and look at the pics over and over and over again.

    The we get some sleep. Wake up, then look at these pics over and over and over and over, again.

    Then check our phones and e-mail to make sure we did not miss T-Mo’s contacting us to let us pre-order the phone. While multi-tasking, looking at this pics over and over and over, again.

    • Jeff

      Its funny ’cause its true.

      • Chgo26

        So damn true. LOL Ive never behaved like this over a phone.

    • That sounds just like me Michael; my wife says that she wishes she was the freaking phone, cuz i look more at the pics of the phone than her!!!!!

    • stadbarr29

      It’smichaelnotmike….shut your pie hole. Creep. And nobody cares about your stupid touchpro 2 box.

      • Blacksheep427

        chill out stadbarr29. We’re here to learn about the HD2. I respectfully suggest an attitude check to keep peace.

    • Sgt. Cell

      So funny and so true, the wait is almost over!

    • Blacksheep427

      you spying on me? :)

      • Blacksheep427

        that is, how did you know I have to cehck pics and specs all the time? :D oh, ye, and the calander, too.

  • mmafighter077

    Was that taken with the HD2?

    • mmafighter077

      juuuuuuust kiddding.

  • I want it now!! By the way i got some gel skins for the HD2on my site http://www.thegadgetbuzz.com

    These are the TPU material.!! =)

  • Deaconclgi

    The flooring in the picture is typical of medical facilities. It looks like a Georgia Cancer Specialists bathroom….

    Now the phone…..what day of the month is it today? Awwwww man……….

  • umaluver

    I’d trade my nexus for this if I was assured an upgrade to WMP7. Until that upgrade is confirmed anyone that buys this is an impatient sucker.

    • Joe Pa

      I’m an impatient sucker. Whose with me?

      • Johnny

        i am!!!

      • Mockerfab4

        moi! Impatient sucker here…!

      • DotNetCoderAZ

        uh, yeah… not just yeah, but HELL FREAKIN’ YEAH!

      • JonB

        Mee too! I wouldnt use the rev 0 of ANY product from M$!

    • Bobomo

      Or they just don’t care about WP7.

      • DavidB

        Ditto on that…WM7 looks like crap.

    • Kiss my …!!! umaluver; I bet you were just as impatient sucker when you bought the nexus. So just stop crying cuz you got stuck and screw with a phone that came with a lot of problems!!!!! lol!!!

      • umaluver

        No, douche. I was very patient. I just bought it a couple weeks ago. And I know I will be getting free updates to the OS as they come out. And now that I have the nexus to hold me over, I can wait patiently until WMP7 comes out and then wait patiently some more till they iron out all kinks.

        Until its confirmed that it is eligible for the upgrade path, its dead in the water.

        Nexus works great btw. Learn to use less exclamation points. !!!lol!!1 der!@!!!

      • tato22

        christian you are just one of these guys that are broke and still have the g1 and cant ever upgrade cuz u have no dam money so you come on here and hate and bitch about dum crap get a life niga and move up on life broke as niga

    • Wilma Flintstone

      If you consider waiting for a good phone such as this one for years while being stuck with a Nokia 3220 (Look it up) impatient. If anything, I’ve been extremely patient waiting on Tmobile to start getting good phones.

      Anyway, WinMo 6.5 is fine with me as I didn’t really like what I saw with WP7. I’ll be using a custom OS Rom that integrates with WinMo 6.5 called “SPB Mobile Shell 3.5” anyway so I won’t be worrying about that too much. Maybe you should look it up and be amazed.

    • john

      The upgrade to7 was already killed, this site announced it. Go through xda for a rom though…you’ll be set.

  • efjay

    Someone tell me why T-Mobile refuses to advertise this phone, that is a great looking package, with a gel? case to boot. They would sell a TON if this was shown off. Guess they dont like money, in which case why not give us the phone for free?

  • Ernie


  • Stephen

    I didn’t know this phone would have Visual Voicemail… are there any other T-Mobile phones with Visual Voicemail..if so, how does it work…
    By the way, has anyone heard if this phone will be a T-mobile store exclusive or if I can purchase it from best buy?

    • i have the touch pro 2 and there is a cab that has visual voicemail so im sure it can be used on the hd2. i believe for this cab to work you have to have the g1 data plan which i already had on my account. i think you can login at tmobile.com and change your phone to a g1 and add there internet that way too. you will then get an option to activate visual voicemail.

    • TmoNinja

      Visual Voicemail is on the Bold 9700, myTouch 3G, T-Mobile G1, and the HTC HD2.

      • J-Hop2o6

        and the TP2 w/ WM6.5.. i have it working on my TP2 (i bought it before the 6.5 upgrade).. the cab will work for any WM phone.. just enable it on my.t-mobile.com

    • Quasar

      All the T-Mo Android phones have visual voicemail. I have it on my Nexus One. Once I get a new voicemail, it’s automatically downloaded to the phone and shows me a notice that I have a message. Then I just launch the app and pick what message I want to play from the list. It also lets me pick what part of a message I want to listen to if I need to hear something over again just by tapping on the progress bar. I can pause the message too. While the player is up, it shows the name, phone number, date, time and how long the message is. It even shows a person’s picture if you have one assigned to them. There are also buttons for delete, speaker and callback on the player screen. After you are done listening to a message, it’s easy to switch to other messages without having to go back to the list just by swiping the top part of the screen left or right. It’s pretty handy.

    • Blacksheep427

      I have visual voice mail on my BB 8900 via os upgrade to 5.0 and selecting to turn it on when os upgrade was completed. I clicked on VVM button and tmo message popped up to say my account did not have VVM active, and would I like it turned on and added to my account, I chose yes and that’s it. VVM is voice mail with a media player interface of sorts. It may give more options than regular vm.

  • Wilma Flintstone

    Man, they did not have to show this. This new saddens me because now I know what to expect and I WANT IT NOWWWWW!!!!!! WAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! Yes I’m crying like a baby, WANT TO MAKE SOMETHING OF IT?!?!?! March 24 will be a wonderful day.

  • OSUBeavs

    This thing looks sweet. Microsoft is foolish to not get WM 7 on it, but I still am probably going to get it… best thing to come out in my opinion! Plus having Megan fox on it sure helps!

  • MightyAB

    Umm I think I messed up my iPod with all the drool that was on it. I’m a huge android fanboy but this phone just looks amazing. Can’t wait to get it and give it a trial run

  • Joe

    Once Again… I wont be needing the wife tonight….

  • Ryan

    Ahem… windows mobile. This is an overpriced brick. Just like the touch pro2

    • John

      You’re an overpriced brick, you prick (ryan).

    • enjoijams

      Your an overpriced brick. Just like your mom. Hahaha

    • stadbarr29

      Ryan, you are a bell head. Stupid penis fish. Hey guys, this idiot ryan post these stupid comments on every HD2 post because he has no life and no friends and nothing better to do.

      • David, Managing Editor

        Woah, easy there tiger!

      • Twitch110

        penis fish. That really made me laugh. I’m installing that into my vocab.

    • stadbarr29

      Rtan, you are a bellhead stupid penisfish. Hey everyone..this idiot ryan has posted stupid comments on every HD2 post that has been on here because he is a loser with no friends, no life, and nothing bettert to do. He wants attention so he postd stupid comments. Ryan..please get a life.

      • J-Hop2o6

        lol trolling never fails

    • Mockerfab4

      I heart overpriced bricks. They rock! :)

  • Kevin

    does anyone know it swype works in landscape mode? i cant wait for this phone!

  • manushka

    so true, look at these all day.

  • toxtrepla

    Ok, so is that the same slipcover/case that came with the euro version? Or is that something else entirely? I need to know so I can make the proper arrangements…

    • toxtrepla

      whoops, nevermind! I looked a little harder at the picture… I think I will have to order myself the slip cover the euro version came with. I’m not a big fan of gel cases.

  • andrew

    why can’t tmobile call the htc hd why hd2?

    • Chuong

      Because it’s the proper name. The HTC HD was released in 2008 and this is the upgrade to the HD.

    • Davidohio

      Why can’t the sky be green?

      • Wilma Flintstone

        Well, it can be if there’s an Aurora. During Aurora Borealis, the sky is all sorts of colors. HAAA!!!! Dangit, now I want to go to Alaska to see one. CRAPPIT FISHSTICKS AND CUPCAKES!!!! HAAA!!!!

    • Joe Pa

      Wow! Seriously Andrew?

  • Ahh Yo!

    I can’t wait until this comes out. This is the best phone ever to come out. It’s better than iPhone and Blackberry.

  • Rich

    Uhhh because it’s the hd2…..

  • Jonstonson

    My sources say March 24th, along with the Nokia Nuron.

  • Davidohio

    I love android but I think I want this phone and will give winmo another try!!!

  • harvey

    called my local tmobile in Pearland,tx… told that they were playing with the phone as we spoke and that they will start selling on the 23rd.

    • JD

      Hmm, I called Radio Shack today (no T-Mo stores in Tyler, TX) and they said the 24th. I hope we’re both wrong; maybe it’ll drop the 17th!

  • HD2 Coming Soon


  • phalosopher

    GREENSBORO NC HAS IT! I went by the tmobile store in Greensboro @ the 4 seasons mall.. I didn’t think they had it but as soon as I asked about it.. the rep(dustin) went and got one of the 2 demo phones they received today. The phone is indeed huge basicially bc of the screen of course and super thin.. it had a great feel to itand the touch screen responded very quick! The store rep(like the rest) didn’t know about the price and when exactly it would be available.. BUT I definitely gave him my info and got his card so I could get one once its available even though I plan to order via phone.. which ever way it becomes available first. Bottom line The phone is a BEAST! I can’t express how much the phone is definitely a quality purchase.. just waitin in line like the rest of us!

  • Jonstonson

    Everyone who bitches about this phone not having an upgrade to windows 7 should shut up. It’s like complaining that you’re stuck with a 2007 Ferrari, instead of the 2010. Just doesn’t make sense.
    Looks like an awesome phone, I’d love this phone to compliment my BB9700. (Let’s be real, I can’t get off the Crackberry)

    • Vic

      I cant blame you dude I am in the same boat and think i will just add a line and keep my 9700 and have this bad boy to shut up all of my iphone using friends.

  • jonny

    it come with a gell shell wow

  • HD2luvva

    damn….I just nutted….

    • Wilma Flintstone

      Cleanup on Aisle 5, Cleanup on Aisle 5!!! Bring the disinfectant.


    The glorious HD2…………we wait upon thy gracious time to bestow upon us thy greatness……………….

  • IT SHALL BE MINE!!!!!!!!!!

  • Blacksheep427

    the cool info just keeps pouring in. I’m definitely getting this. no win7 is no deal breaker. BTW, is it the 24th yet? :D

  • tchez27

    Nice, thank you TMOnews and BGR for providing us with all your informative, newsbreaking and completely friggin mind teasing views and info about the HD2.

    Reading about the release date and news of it coming to T-Mobile is one thing, but actually seeing the finished product exists and is in circulation just made me want this phone even more. I just broke (not on purpose, although my wife thinks so) my G1 and have resorted to using my daughters bumble bee looking motorola phone so now I really cant wait for this thing to drop. I know most often the product cant meet the hype but this one is going to be pretty damn close.

    I’ll see all you “HD2oids” in line on the 24th, I’ll be the one with the lawn chair and sleeping bag.

  • Jay

    A couple of questions. Does this support bluetooth headphones? And if so, what heaphones would you recommend that will come with a mic? I do alot of walking and talking and i have a unlocked iPhone 3g with the mic in ear heaphones. I dont like walking with the phone in my ear. Im finally getting rid of it because I have grown to dislike Apple and this phone is sooooooo sweet. Thanks in advance!!

    • Mockerfab4

      Most likely it does. I remember for the short time I had the MyTouch 3G I had a jabra headphone and was able to listen to pandora from it. I would assume it’s the same for this…I hope I’m right. ;)

  • WMisbest

    awesome, It’s devices like this that remind me why I work a job I hate =) oh and the pesky need to eat and have shelter but those needs are not even close to the HD2 =)

    • Joe Pa

      lol…so true.

  • phalosopher

    It supports bluetooth.. don’t know about the headset part.. even the tmobile website states that…. all I do now is keep playin the videos from when I had it in my hands.. the store rep was watchin transformers when he showed it to me.. I asked him how the battery life was and he stated he didn’t know for sure since he’s just been watchin the transformer movie on it. Guarantee I will be going by there when I get off tomorrow so I can play with it some more and also peep whatever demo display they got set up.. this phone is truely below the main stream radar.. I can’t understand why?! Zero marketing and its 2 weeks before launch?! Oh and post ya email and I will send the video I took of it..

    • Oce

      Phalosopher, hit me up with that vid. I’m in NC but none of my local stores have it. :(

  • Vic

    When i log on to see if anything had been mentioned and saw this i walked straight out of class to come home and see all of this sexy beast one my 27″ pc screen because my 9700 was not doing it for me. The box is maybe the best looking box that I have ever seen for any device and the added skin is a great addition also. I can not wait for this to drop. And tchez27 i will be sitting next to you with my sleeping bag and lawn chair and i will bring the beer.

  • Youngmula303

    This is a UK version, as one can tell by the two-prong equipped charger.

    • TmoNinja

      No, it’s not. This is the T-Mobile USA packaging and hardware.

    • DavidB

      No, it’s the US version. Both the Euro and US versions come with the same design of charger (wall wart with standard USB port)…but the Euro has the round posts and the US has our blades.

      • DavidB

        In fact, the label on the charger base even says “US PLUG”.

    • Inuyasha

      No it isn’t. This is the US version. You can tell by looking at the Call and End/Power buttons. They have color, where the Euro version isn’t colored. The buttons on the Euro version are all the same white color. The pic of the charger you see doesn’t have the prongs in place, yet(prongs are removable to attach ones for different countries).

  • It’s nice to know I am not the lone phone wing nut. My wife gives me shit all the time she told me that if she dressed up like a robot would I pay more attention to her IE:Android. I make no apologies for my obsession with little green bot!That said I am getting this phone just for a toy I despise Winmo sorry but it sucks the truth is I can’t wait for the Supersonic or the Incredible to come out so I will grab this big screened beast for now to tide me over.I will see you at the store winmoers.



  • hd2maniac

    i literally just jizzed my pants going through these pics. if this isn’t the iphone killer than i don’t know what is. on my mama i’m so getting this phone. can’t wait.

    • Bobomo

      I don’t think “literally” means what you think it means. Unless you were actually masturbating while looking at those pictures — in which case, you have issues.

      • David, Managing Editor

        Alright, enough with the dirty talk!

    • YanivC

      No offense but people really need to stop saying iPhone killer.
      Why would you want to be an iPhone killer? Thats like saying the only thing we aspire to is making a phone better than the iPhone…. why not… I aspire to making the best mobile experience out there… regardless of any competitor.

      I just jizzed my pants too when I saw these pics.
      I actually getting rid of my Nexus One for this phone :)

      • Pat

        He said, “Enough with the dirty talk!” You guys should get your wienies checked.

  • Bill Berry

    It aggravates me that T-Mobile hasn’t put it’s corporate muscle behind either the HTC Touch Pro 2 and the upcoming release of the HTC HD2 (Leo); however there are now over a million MyTouch3G units sold which is no little number in the scheme of smartphones sold in this country. Yes, Apple has at least 6 million units which have updated to it’s recent OS update and 14.4% of the overall market while HTC is pulling 4.6% and HTC first two month sales are up 10.93% from this time last year (Source: http://htcpedia.com/news/781.html). We’re like the AARP…we’re not a big number but we do raise a lot of noise about our devices. It will be very interesting to see how well this device sells as it appears the Sidekicks are being phased out and this device is being advertised as an entertainment device. I posted a question over on XDA about what the “real world” differences are betweeen the TP2 and the HD2 and the “chef” who makes the EnergyROM for the TP2 as well as the HD2 replied it is 10 times faster in regards to everything it does. I’m sold and will be selling my TP2 as the release date nears.

    One note and it is an important note….I talked to T-Mobile earlier today. Be advised if you opt for a contract they are going to insist on the more expensive data plans if you’re currently grandfathered in the T-Mobile Web data plan. I’m not implying they’ll force you, but keep that in mind if they attempt to enforce this.

    • Kevin

      The reason for this (removal of grandfathered feature) is because when you take a discount on a new smartphone, you sign a contract agreeing to a 2yr service including a REQUIRED data feature. Because the grandfathered data feature does not have the ability to be required, the employee or system must change to a required data feature. The required data features are new features, thus may not have the same pricing as your grandfathered data plan. Its not that they are trying to cheat you out of your grandfathered feature, but rather system limitations that do not allow the requirement of a grandfathered feature.

      In respect to what you said about the HD2, yes, all of the above. It is fantastic and well worth the data plan regardless of whether you get it with a contract or without.

      • FutureGuyKnowsSoLittle

        I know I could find this answer easily, but am lazy and will ask here: T-mo splits the cost of a phone over several months… is that only for subsidized, under contract phones? If I try to buy this for $449 without re-newing, will they split it into payments still?

      • YanivC

        Future guy,
        Yes as far as I read they allow you to purchase in monthly installments for either purchase. I would check though.

      • FutureGuyKnowsSoLittle

        Thanks YanivC

        I’ll definitely double check, but another blog (I think it was engadget?) also had a leak that pricing plans for the phone itself is either $112 over 4 months, or 20 payments of $20… both of which would add up to $450… so rumor wise, looks like its possible.

        If that’s the case, then I might re-think getting this phone. I was going to wait for WP7 and didn’t want to drop $450 all at once (man, I got other gadgets and junk to buy!! lol)… but with a payment plan, I can get the phone unsubsidized without spending $450 all at once, ride out my current contract until WP7 comes, then get a WP7 under contract for discount.

        And then I’ll get sharks w/ laser beams attached to their heads and my master plan will be complete.

      • Kevin


        It depends on what type of rate plan you are on. If you are on a contracted rate plan, and purchase the phone full price, you can still break the phone into 4 payments. If you are on an even more plus plan, you of course have to pay full price for the phone, but you have the ability to break the phone into 20 payments.

        Even without wm7, this phone makes sharks with lasers

  • Blah.Android–

    I think I’ll finally be able to give up the Sidekick.
    Ahh –orgasm; …..damnit

  • enveed05

    All the jizzing aside :-p

    I’m almost convinced. I was considering a N1 until Google got stupid with it’s pricing structure. Google = Fail.

    I’m thinking about an iPhone.

    I’m almost sold. For the WinMo folks out there, a few question…

    What’s out there for apps? Gmai, AIM, etc… I know that Shazaam is out for WinMo which ROCKS, haha…

    What about the GPS? Is there an additional fee to use the GPS built into this phone? Android phones now have free GPS functionality, iPhones do (i think).

    These aren’t hater questions… I’m trying to get enough info to push me over the edge with this phone, it sure does look like an amazing piece of hardware.


    • dante

      They have aim apps, im not sure about gmail apps, i think they might have one, but i know with active sync you can have push notifcations

    • randall

      there are alot of window mobile apps, they just arent centrally located like android, but the app marketplace is growing.The gps shouldnt cost anything extra its built right into the phone, and you have to have a data connection.

      I am just like you, I was very much considering a N1 but out of contract and on a family , this is my next device

    • FutureGuyKnowsSoLittle

      Cant remember what blog I saw it on, but I saw one screen shot that clearly showed Gmail and Google Maps icons… I remember staring at the screen shot and thinking, “This WinMo phone has links/apps for the things I use on my G1 anyway!”

    • bmx2500

      Actually, you don’t need a data connection to use the GPS unless you are using google maps. You can buy TomTom or Garmin software and download the maps onto the flash card. I have both on my Sony x1 and it’s really handy. I am definately going to get the HD2.

  • dante

    Give me now! Soon as I get that email, im ordering it! Next day air! Or maybe even go into the store hmmm decsions!

    Quit talking about I dunno about this cause of winMo7, I’d understand if it was already oout but its not even out yet!

    Also no more “would be better with android”

  • papito007


  • Wilma Flintstone

    Anybody Notice the Google Maps Program on the HD2? Does this mean glorious Google Navigation? I need to focus on something else so the time will pass faster. But I know I won’t be able to. Crapcakes!!!!

  • Skyline_GTR

    I will be getting my E71 on the market and will be getting HD2 from Tmobile :) … I am just waiting to see what will be the price. It was rummored it will be 199.99 but I am not quite sure about that.

    I plan to get it Tmobile off contract which should be $450 I guess…. Cannot wait :)

  • aa

    It doesn’t necessarily mean that it’ll have Navigation, as Google Maps has been available for every OS for a while now. I think Google will keep it exclusive to its Android phones for a little bit before giving Winmo users the goodness.

  • Ktwist

    @enveed05 Mmm from what i know, the only navigation is thru telenav, not turn by turn:(

    Regardless this device is amazing and will be a great choice to pic from. Nothing against iphone users but can you honestly buy technology thats already 3yrs old almost. I had an iphone and have moved on, nothing bad about them I just think people should check out other products like the HD2 or Nexus One and so on. You will be much happier with a device that can multitask and not bleed you dry with an expensive rate plan. If your have to get an iphone, at least wait till the summer for the new iphone.

  • Ktwist

    Ps, I meant the google maps is not turn by turn navigation. The Telenav is turn by turn but I think you need to pay monthly for it.

    • just some d?de

      The google maps whice now integrates navigator is turn by turn with voice and its free with street view.

    1Gig processor and no multitasking what a waste. At least it will crash super fast.

    • Twitch110

      Whaaaa? You’re confused homeslice.

      Enough of you and your android crap. Windows mobile does multi task. I am tired of seeing you in all of these HTC HD2 threads with your negative comments that no one cares about. Go into a iphone thread and talk smack about that. Seriously, go away!

      • Joe Pa

        Don’t feed the troll then….

    • Wilma Flintstone

      Man and I was just about to get this phone until you said it couldn’t multitask… but then I remembered that you clearly don’t know crap about this phone. Yeah I said it, WANT TO MAKE SOMETHING OF IT?!?! I didn’t think so. So shut up, pick your bottom lip up off the floor and watch this glorious video:

      HD2 Multitasking

  • DM

    Anyone on the fence like I am between HD2 and waiting for rumored Dell Mini 5? I am dying to get my hands on the HD2, but just saw this on Engadget now it makes me think again about my decision…


    • Joe Pa

      The Dell mini looks too big imo

      • Twitch110

        Agreed. The HD2 is pushing the envelope on size. The mini 5 is not mini at all. That’s a big honker. Definitely not pocketable. No way jose.

    • Wilma Flintstone

      When is the Dell Mini coming out? I may get one due to the front facing camera (I really want a phone that can do video calls). I am getting the HD2 without question but I may get the Dell Mini as well. When is it coming out and how much will it cost?

      • FutureGuyKnowsSoLittle

        Is the Dell Mini really considered a phone? (I’m really asking, not trying to be an ass). I saw the pics and didn’t read too much into it… just looks like another Archos to me.
        I have been wanting a netbook or tablet (no iPads though… ugly crap), but if the HD2 is as snappy and speedy as they say, then getting the HD2 might resolve all the reasons I wanted a tablet in the first place.
        And MS Courier FTW. They better make it.

    from my understanding as i spoke to a friend who works for tmobile if you get the htc hd2 phone you dont have to upgrade to the data plan because its only for the android phones dont be confuse with this.. only for the new cliq and G1 phone and my touch require the data plan to be updated..not the htc.. the new htc phone has HD screen, new procressor 1ghz, and screen is 4.5 inches which is bigger than the iphone, alot thinner and personality this phone will compete with nextus..

    • Twitch110

      Here’s yer siiiign

    • FutureGuyKnowsSoLittle

      Not trying to debate you, but I don’t believe that because T-mo requires you get a data plan for the Blackberry Bold. So whatever mandatory data plan rules exists, they are going for newer smartphones in general, not just Android.

  • fm

    I had the Cliq teleneva after 2 months you have to pay for it and most gps you do..

  • tchez27

    Check this out HD2oids! Incase you’re like me and just can’t get enough of this beast of a phone. The HTC website has a 7, thats right 7 minute video about the features of and using the HTC HD2. I’ve personally watched it three times. Have fun! Here’s the link http://www.htc.com/www/product/hd2/overview.html. Click on the green take a closer look button.

  • Michael

    ok, i have a question. i spoke to a t-mobile rep today and they told me that i have a Partial upgrade not a Full upgrade. so that means that $199 is the Full upgrade. what about a partial update how much would it be???

    • Joe Pa

      Your soul.

      • Wilma Flintstone

        MWUHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! and a new 2 year agreement.

    • Twitch110

      Depends on how long you’ve been in contract for. I’m only eligible for about $70 off. And i’m about 8 months into my contract. Meh.

    • FutureGuyKnowsSoLittle

      Depends on the phone I think… it’s usually closer to the full price rather than the discount price… I’m thinking at least $300 for partial upgrade… if your that lucky, cause chances are it’ll be more like $369.99 or something like that.

      The T-mo website will tell you… just click on some other phone like you’re going to buy it and see how much they sell it to you for (but you know, dont’ actually buy it, just look at the price).

  • T

    What’s up everybody. We tech support reps for T-Mobile are starting to receive our training on this device. One word, KILLER!!! This phone will compete w/any smartphone on the market, especially w/the features it has. Transformers 1 & 2 preloaded on the memory card (which is 16gb by the way), barnes & noble ereader, mobitv, blockbuster online. The display is gorgeous & crystal clear. Touch screen nice & responsive, & at 4.3 ins, definitely won’t have a hard time seeing anything. The only downfall I can see that customers wouldn’t like possibly is the overall size of the ph. Might wanna invest in a bluetoothe earpiece, other than that, a great phone.

  • aa

    Wow 16GB! Haha they must have spent their advertising dollars on licensing those two big blockbuster movies!

  • vikingfan45

    go for it its the best phone they got

  • dj lu

    Does anyone know if its coming out with the Swipe App pre loaded???


    Yes it is

    • dj lu

      Awesome!!! thx!!


    Those of you looking for navigation, I suggest getting Co pilot. It looks just like a Garmin had live updates and weather, and you can search for poi’s. But the best thing about it is you don’t have to have a data connection to use it. Its stored on your SD card or phone memory and runs straight from there. So with the included memory with this phone there should be no problem. I had this on my tp2, it worked great.

    • dj lu

      do you know how much space does actually take?


        2g I think.

  • NiiDiddy


  • lp894

    I haven’t even TOUCHED the REAL phone…but I did see the dummy yesterday…and it sold me…love at first sight. I’ll be selling my TP2 to get one of these puppies…..or maybe I’ll sell my BB Bold since I could get more for it…I haven’t really decided yet…but I’m selling at least one of them lol! I do like the full keyboard on the TP2 so I’ll have to see how it goes with the lack of physical keyboard before really making the switch. In addition, I’m on my 3rd TP2(due to malfunctions) so I’m pretty sure if I have any more issues, they’d offer to swap out the device for the HD2….generally after 3 devices the offer to swap the phone out, but you’re required to sign a new 2 yr agreement.

  • michael

    Does it come build in 16 gb memory on the phone or it comes with a 16 gb micro memory chip?

    • ItsMichaelNotMike

      I noticed that too Michael, that HTC/T-Mobile called it “memory” instead of “includes 16GB microSD chip.”

      Seems that would be confusing to people who do not follow this stuff, which is about 99.9% of consumers out there, the ones who don’t know the “un-acronyms” for RAM, ROM or SD.

  • Phalosopher

    michael. it comes with the 16 gb mem card.

  • Steven

    I will be there first thing in the morning to pick up my HD2 on launch day. I am coming from a Mytouch 3G which I liked but I have to say I was disappointed with the android apps. The iphone apps are still the best but I cannot stand the phone itself.(Boring). I can’t wait to use the Office apps on that large screen. I can run my entire business from my phone. Does anyone know if there is a barcode scanner app that will work on the HD2? Give us a date TMO!!!

  • ItsMichaelNotMike
