HTC HD2: Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional and Capacitive Touch


Gorgeous HTC’s HD2 is a gorgeous smartphone touting a 4.3-inch capacitive touch LCD with a 800 x 480 resolution (landscape) and runs Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional. An 1GHz Snapdragon CPU powers the HD2, which also happens to be the world’s first WinMo smartphone with a capacitive display. The HD2 has a 5 megapixel camera with auto-focus, a dual-LED flashlight, 3.5mm audio jack, micro-USB connection, three sensors (accelerometer, proximity, ambient light), apps for social networking (FaceBook, Twitter, YouTube), Bluetooth 2.1, GPS, digital compass, WiFi BG and WiFi router. The HD2 looks really nice, but can someone remind me why it is called ‘HD’?

The video (above) is HTC’s attempt at promoting its new HD2. For some reason I wasn’t feeling it when watching the video. And I think I know why: the video didn’t build up to something climactic. It just dragged on with the same beat. I know it isn’t fair to expect movie-style greatness from HTC, but with a tag line like “Feel the Rumble” the video should have been much better.
