hohoho, 16 Dec 2010hi , im now considering to buy the htc hd2 or htc wildfire . help pls ?Are you mad?
Do you see the screen res of the Wildfire? Do you want to go blind?
And that CPU is way to slow to do any kind of heavy video work.
Your choice should be between the HD2 & the Desire HD or Desire
If you what a good smart phone, anything with a CPU under 1GHz and a vertical screen resolution under 800 is a waste of time.

Many thanks for your information, indeed it's an eye opener for me. Truth is I spent too much time on work and less time on gadgets the last 5 years. I'll look into this and since it doesn't interfere with the WM's OS, I can basically switch between them as and when I like - good stuff here. Now, this is another true selling point for HD2 owners, those people out there deciding on which PDA or smartphone to buy can have a 2 in 1 (best of both worlds) gadget - the HD2 (new or used) is THE ONLY ONE IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW that can provide Windows and Android combination for the price of one! I think this is a pretty strong sales pitch, an irresistable one too. My used HD2 has just gone up in price again. For everyone's benefit, we all should go out there to tell the world about this, let the spin off effects get to the public and help us to get the best resale price in the future. Admittedly, majority of the gadgets these days can only fetch about 50% of the original purchase price after 1 year of ownership and that's quite a bit of money to lose.

You're right about the "why Android" thing I mentioned. I've forgotten... moreIím using Android from this page.
It is version 4.1 now but when I last did it, it was version 4
So my still camera works but not the video camera.
I see the video camera works now in version 4.1.
Stuart, 15 Dec 2010High Tech,
You're right about the "why Android" thing I mentioned. I've forgotten... moreWhen you install Android on your HD2 it is installed and factions on the SD
It doesnít tamper with your internal memory in anyway. It dose not alter your windows mobile in any way. (Come to think about it, I donít even think it sees your internal memory when you are running in Android.) So as a heavy user of Windows mobile you have nothing to worry about. You will still be able to use your WM when ever you want. (When you are in Android you just restart the phone and it start up in WM once again.) You can still use your WM full time if you like, and boot into Android only when you need to do something you canít do from WM likeÖ flash web browsing.
Once you have a fast SD, with a lot of free space on it. Having android is as easy as
1. Have an updated ROM for your HD2 installed. (Original or cooked it dose not matter, once itís one of the newer versions)
2. Copy the Android folder to the root of the SD card (after you un-zip it of cause).
3. Run the 2 files as the instruction on the download page says. (These 2 file you will have to run every time you want to start Android when in WM. unless you install the WM app that automates it for you.)

You're right about the "why Android" thing I mentioned. I've forgotten that many guys out there upgraded to Froyo on their HD2. In fact, I'm also interested to look into the change but I need to have a complete break from my work in order to have the focus, you know, the time require "if" I don't like it after the upgrade or "if" some problems crop up after the upgrade and I need to be there and settle it immediately. I need the HD2 for work purposes all the time except my bedtime. I kinda experienced with some problems before while playing with Windows Mobile 2002, 2003, WM5, WM6.1 so I knew I must be ready should I choose to change the OS to Android. Luckily, I don't use the phone part of my HD2 as I use my Motorola for conversations. As of now, I'm happy with the way my HD2 has been serving me, really made my friend jealous as I bought this HD2 from him 3 months after he bought it new. He thought he's getting rid of a problem machine, the "hanging" part of it was a problem for him and he's a first time smartphone user too. So I guess any smartphone will be a problem to him - he found it to be too complicated and guess what, he bought an Iphone 3GS from another friend's recommendation and also not too happy. He told me once he regretted selling the HD2 to me at 1/3 of his purchased price. After I bought it, I went to a PDA shop, paid the salesman 10 bucks to reinstall all apps and checked for ROM update after a hard reset. I suspected some unwanted third party softwares were causing the problems he encountered. With hard reset, updated ROM and the experienced salesman who "played" with various smartphones, he'll know for sure what kinda of problems are expected from different brands of phones and some of which are user inflicted. Now my HD2 is as solid as new and the best thing is it is still under warranty.
That saying, I've recently played with an LG smartphone with Windows Phone 7 OS, quite smooth and responsive but didn't like the interface. I might part with my HD2 next year for a better OS, maybe Android or WP7 which are my personal preference.
HTC HD2 is one of the best mobile I have used. We cannot expect better than this for a mobile device. U have pocket office packages which will be additional advantages in times. Moreover, the big screen 4.3" is worth seeing. It gives good look during surfing. The camera quality is also the best, if u r able to use it in good quality light. All i have to say is its a mini PC for anyone. However the battery life could have been a better. I give 9 out of 10 for this mobile...Enjoy the HTC sense.........

dee, 13 Dec 2010regarding your comment "if you like iPhone or Android, you won't buy this phone".. I... morethe samsung galaxy s has insane benchmark scores. the hummingbird's GPU is insane. There is no way the HD2 runs android better than it
Stuart, 13 Dec 2010hello,
I've been using HD2 for about a year now, found it to be the best of all the Windows... moreregarding your comment "if you like iPhone or Android, you won't buy this phone".. I agreed if it's iPhone.. but Android? this monster here can also run android smoothly.. honestly, my quadrant score for running android is even better than SGS.. lol..
not to mention that we can use many different ports, from nexus one to the newest HTC sense from Desire HD..
this phone ROCKS!!
Stuart, 13 Dec 2010hello,
I've been using HD2 for about a year now, found it to be the best of all the Windows... moreI agree that the HD2 is still a very, very nice phone to buy (even without official WP7 update. Xda is working on a port of WP7 to the HD2).... Don't care much for WP7 in it's current state (blocks or tiles)... Right now I have WM and Android on my HD2 and LOVE it... Waiting for new Android OS v2.3... I use Android on a daily basis.... I like the dual boot option on my HD2.... The HD2 lets you try diff OS's on your phone before you buy....
My next phone will be Android (has HDMI out)... WM has DLNA (my tv doesn't have that built in)... Also looking at the Android Tablet's... Will buy an Android Tablet first..... Just waiting to see if new Android OS v2.3 will be put on the Android Tab's?????
