This was a reply from HTC to Russell about HD2 and WP7. Looks like he's asking about the HD2 and WP7:
Hi Russell, thanks for your email.
I do not know where these network assistants got this information as it is not correct. The official answer is that "We are working closely with Microsoft on Windows Phone 7 Series and look forward to releasing new handsets which will use the new OS." reading between the lines, it would seem therefore that the answer would be no.
There are many reasons for this, not least Steve Ballmers announcement that "no current handsets will be upgraded", Also 7 Series is NOT an upgrade to 6.5. Microsoft is releasing it as a totally new and separate OS from the exisiting Windows Mobile versions. 6.5 will continue to be developed, even after 7 will be available, to offer two different OS versions for different needs. 6.5 will remain more business orientated, and for devices with OS skins on them (Like the HD2 which uses our Sense skin), and 7 Series for new, more media and social based handsets, which will not be skinned.
Therefore, I can only recommend that if you specifically want 7, you will need to wait for it to be available on new handsets If the HD2 meets your needs, then i would consider buying it anyway, as the 6.5.x software will continue to be developed even after 7 is released.
If this is true and the HD2 will not get official WP7 update, I'll look else where for my next phone. Seeing as I will need to buy a better equiped phone to handle WP7 if I go that route. HD2 is fine right NOW........

2. if the phone was perfect then people would not ask me for help.
3. if I worked for HTC I would have been fired for helping people to hack there phone.
don't get angry because I find answers to problem instead of complaining like you.

Matter of fact the HD2 is the first HTC phone I've owned.... I don't care one way or the other about HTC. I also own a OM2 (Samsung).... I'm not tied to any manufacturer.... I buy what meets my NEEDS..... In using the HD2 I haven't had any problems with my phone. I can careless what phone people buy...... I'm just here to give my results of working with the HD2 and the diff app's, and ROM's I've used..... If someone comes on here to talk down on the HD2, I just want people to know that there's user's who don't have problems with their HD2... Besides people who post here ARE not HD2 user's (iphone, blackberry, etc. users) tyring to bring donw the HD2.... So YES I will post my results GOOD or BAD about the HD2... If you read some of my post back in Nov 09 to present you will find some negative posts about the HD2, but those issues have been fixed.....................
