Anonymous, 11 Oct 2009Can anybody who thinks Cortex A8 is faster than Snapdragon provide a link or any proof?Snapdragon doesn't have a GPU, which can lead to a laggy UI, and of course, a lack of 3D games. Cortex phones like Nokia N900, Samsung Omnia HD etc. (all of them) have a GPU.
Yes, I like HTC products! But, with HD2 one will have to carry some 2 more spare batteries cause such screen will drain the battery away after 1 hour. I do not understand why new items are coming onto market still facing same problem - battery live? I have now bought I Phone 3Gs for my wife and after some days (I used it myself) I decided to keep it for myself. Easy, quick and much better battery live, to my mind:)

HD2 has 448mb ram ,1ghz cpu & a 4.3 screen that are so cool. WOW
It's too good but it should have a better design and better camera.
Also it can be good and faster with android os.
So the main problem is about camera and maybe os.
HTC should learn how to design phones from apple.
all i can say abt HD2 its a BOMB .... jus mindblowing suppa duppa mobile ))) perfect ))
Looks like a USA version will be released in Q1 2010 with USA 3g. Looks like the versions will be 850/1900 for US, Latin America sku3, 2100/850 for Telstra, Latin America sku1&sku2). These are the same bands on the USA HTC Touch HD. See link: http://htcpedia.com/news/htc-l...htc-hd2.html
I will get this when released on Oct 19th???? Live in USA but doesn't surf much on PDA. That's what my laptop is for at home!!!! Besides I'm tired of paying $30 per month for internet on top of voice plan!!!!!
the main disadvantages of this HTC HD2 are No Video Call and stylus
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2009N900 is a good device but if you compare N900 with HTC HD2, N900 cant kick 1GHz snap dragon.Actually the A8 cortex processor in the n900 is about 1.5 times faster than the snapdragon :)
Plz remember though this processor is 1Ghz, the amount of stuff running on it (winmob 6.5 & touch flo 2.5 and other back ground porgrams), it will operate no different than the N900 or the touch HD with winmob 6.1.
Anonymous, 10 Oct 2009yeh but the maemo os of the n900 beats windows 6.5 anytimeSo true. WinMo gives me a headache...
This thing with Maemo would be the utmost phone.
If only Nokia would stop playing with its customers... HTC is much better in that regard.
I have a touch hd and i am happy with it. i ONLY hope that we get the Windows 6.5 update since mine is 6.1.
Anyone know the specs of video recording on this? as it only says: "yes"
Does it record in HD quality, or have HTC named it HD for any other reason?
I used Palm since it was released back in early ´90s. I used to carry my cell phone and the incredible pda. Then I got myself a Sony Clie PDA (ALSO PALM OS). The next good thing was having both, the pda and the cell in one windows device. At the beguinning the OS change was difficult, but eventually I got used to it qnd enjoyed all the amazing features. Recently I made a Huge mistake by buying the Nokia N97. Symbian happend to be a childs OS far from windows mobile. I been trying to get along with it for a few month now and I know i need another phone.
I never used an Iphone, but I´ve played with my daugther´s Ipod and I must say that I envy the incredible capacitive screen. So I am waiting for a WiMo device with CAPACITIVE big screen. 3.5 to 4.3 inches would be amazing (I didnt consider the Palm Pre because althogh it has capacitive screen, it´s only 3.1 inches and Apple alreaddy knows that the ideal screen size is 3.5) So, I think that I should decide to purchase either the HTC HD2 or the Toshiba K01. Both WiMo (meaning I have my whole computer with me all the time in my pocket), and as important: both with Capacitive touchscreens. Given both have the right size of display, 3.5 inches or more, The overall size will determine which one is the best. At least until something new and different apear and make us believe that it is just impossible to live without that thig.
