Sorry, I meant 2011 :P
And you can play ALL PS ONE, Nintendo (except of Gamecube and Wii), Sega, etc. games on it thanks to the emulators available.
There is nothing better available than this sweet little piece of hardware.
There would, if they had a keyboard version (=
Anthony is referring to http://www.xda-developers.com
This and http://www.htcpedia.com are the most important sites when you want to get along with a Windows Mobile Phone.
You have to see the Windows Mobile Phones as hardware. The better it is, the more you can run on it. There is no need to buy a new phone in order to get better features or nicer looks. You just flash a custom built ROM from one of those sites mentioned above and you have a "new" phone. I had the SE Xperia X1 and was missing TouchFlo3D from the HTC Touch Pro 2. After 20 minutes, I had the latest software on my one year old phone.
As long as the hardware is top, you don't need to waste money for upgrading your phone.
The BEST thing about the HD2 is the fact that it can be upgraded to WM 7 when it comes out somewhen next year. So I can upgrade my contract to another 18months without having to worry about my phone not being up-to-date.
And there are a lot of people working heavily on porting Android onto it as well. And they are making quite some progress...
If anyone finds me a phone I can be sure of running the lastest software and different OS until the middle of 2012 or longer, I will eat my shorts on youtube.
Don't wait to BUY this phone. The price is going up. The place I purchased from now is selling HD2 at $899.00. I bought at $750.00.........
Anonymous, 08 Nov 2009so , what do you think about iPHONE 3GS & anyway what's the match for HD2 right now?The only phone out there that's a match with the HD2 is the Omnia 2. HD2 has the Omnia 2 in only Sreen Size 4.3 (HD2) to 3.7 (Omnia 2). The Omnia 2 has the better looking screen hands down. The HD2 is a little faster than the Omnia 2 1ghz(HD2) and 800ghz(Omnia 2). Omnia 2 front facing camera, HD2 none. Omnia 2 TV out, HD2 none. Omnia 2 8GB internal Mem. The Omnia 2 has DLNA to watch movies on DLNA TV, HD2 none. Check the spec's side by side and you'll see the Omnia 2 is equal. Don't get me wrong the HD2 is a BAD phone and I ordered one, and cannot wait to get it...... I also have the Omnia 2 and LOVE it as well. I wanted the Big screen of the HD2 and the chance to update to WM7 when it comes out next year. Not sure if the Omnia 2 can be updated to WM7??????
BUY the phone that meets your NEEDS.......
This phone is great however I donwloaded the manual and it doesnt mention anything about video call, I guess that is why there is no info re secondary cam....Why can't there be a phone with everything 100% full.....???
I have HTC Touch 2. I misread T Mobiles site thinking i was getting the new one, & about to send it back under 7 day return policy. Shall I keep it or is there a lot more on the HD2?
wow it's a monster phone, but why too big width?may be better if it's 3.6 in. display...is camera good enough?
Upcoming hottest Phones:
1) HTC HD2
2) Blackberry Bold 9700
3) Motorolla Droid (Android 2.0)
4) Nokia900 (Maemo)
buddies, I was an iPhone user for 3 years, but not anymore guys my opinion that iPhone is just a toy with "Apple" Logo.
the HTC HD2 simply awesome no comments on it. :)

Nokia N900 pwns Moto Droid and HTC HD2:
is the lcd screen scratch-resistant?
it's not mentioned in the specifications.
if not,is the screen protector good enough to make it?
ProjectCM3, 07 Nov 2009Thanks for the explanation Anthony...yet more questions though :)
1. How do I know what app... more
1. How do I know what apps/programs are compatible with the HD2?
The foul proof way is just to install it and see if it works. If it does yahaaa, if it does not then just uninstall it. :-)
Now that, that is out of the way, here are some things you should know.
1. Most of the programs you would want to install will not be made by a phone manufacture so don’t expect it to be for just one phone only.
2. Two main things you look at are what windows mobile OS version it was made for and what hardware you need for it to work.
If it was made for wm6.5 it will not work on 6.1 or earlier. But if it was made for an earlier version of wm there is a very good chance it will work in wm6.5
Then you need to look at hardware needs… eg.
If the program needs a front camera it will not work because this phone does not have a front camera
Or if it’s an old game that was not made to use touch screen but a D-pad instead, it will not work because this phone has no D-pad.
If the program needs a next program to be on the phone or a newer driver to be installed, it will not work till you install the program it needs or the newer driver it needs. If the program was not made for a WVGA screen but for a VGA screen, it will work but look really small and only fill about a quarter of the WVGA screen.
And remember if a new feature comes out or you want an old feature it does not have. Once the phone has the needed hardware it’s just a matter of finding the drivers and/or the software. XDA is always a good place to start.
3. You can download the program on your PC or the Phone.
If it is a .cab file you have to copy it to the phone and double click it there.
If it is a zip file you have to unzip it on the phone or the PC then put it on the phone and double click it to install.
If it is an .msi file you have to install it on your PC and let active sync put it on your phone.
If it’s a .jar file you have to use the java installer on the phone to install it
