HTC Leo could be called HD2, oh and there's a video of the UI - read the full textThe HTC Leo has been churning in the rumor mill for quite a while but it's all coming to an end - it's launching in October. On the list of rumors we've assembled for today there's a new name, price and even a video of would likely be the TouchFLO version that the device uses. First up, the name...

An irratating small point but does anyone know if there is TV out on this model. It is useful when doing powerpoints.

Its $800 dollars! I hope Samsung or others will manufacture one with a reasonable price point like what Samsung did with Omnia II against the Touch HD

A very interesting device but many will wait for Windows mobile 7 and ultimately 8 to appear which according to industry insiders will be a true updated OS. Windows mobile is to a large extent just a cosmetic enhancement.

It will be good device after all.Yeah 65k on that size display can annoy,but still,even with those limitations,winmo is better than symbian for sure,we will see how maemo will cope in cellp world.This phone haves good shape,big screen,well supported os,decent camera,fast processor,eye candy TouchFLO 3D and good business and entertainment feedback,thats what i'm looking for.

I'm also still not sure wheather Snapdragon is more powerful than the Cortex... This phone shouldn't cost more than the N900 (550 euros) considering the specs, and keep in mind that 32GB flash memory IS expensive!

This is the EnergyROM Leo made by NRGZ28 avaliable for GSM and CDMA Raphael / Diamond (VGA)
Blackstone / Sony Xperia / Topaz / Rhodium (WVGA)
Excalibur / TMobile Shadow (Smartphones)

check out the xda developers forum and you'll see, a lot of ROMs already have this 1919 build...

this new touchFLO is one more reason for me to buy SE X2 so I can chose between panels and touchFLO, depending on my needs

This demo is NOT on the HTC Leo/HD2! Please read properly... This is just the ROM on a different device. I believe the device they tested on is the Touch Pro 2.

This might be my next PHONE!!! Was going to get X2 when it came out, but this baby sounds GREAT. Will cost a little cheaper than X2. Live in US. 3G not a big deal to me, us for movies, music, and documents for work. Wish I had saw this phone before I purchased an unlocked Omnia 2. I did get a 3G signal on the Omnia in my state (AT&T), but not all over. Maybe it will be the same with HD2. If I need 3G speeds I'll just go to that part of my state. Most time is reads edge.
