I'm ready take plunge into WD7 phone but it’s the hardware design that preventing me to jump. For me, Htc hd7 & samsung omnia7 are the best among all available windows7 phones. Omnia7 has power on/off button on the side which I do not like (even engadget review said that they turned off the phone accidently while talking on phone). As for htc hd7….it has two big speaker groove on the top & bottom. I think one is ear piece & other one is speaker. Those are dust magnet. I always had tough time cleaning my hd2's ear grill. As for software, it looks pretty zippy & fast despite some limitations.
I asked myself following questions about those limitations: (this is just me….may not be true for others)
1)Copy & paste: I do not remember when was the last time I used this feature in my hd2. I do everything in pc & then sync to phone. So I hardly use copy/paste.
2)Multitasking: This is phone….you can not have 2-3 windows open in that tiny screen like in computer. For me multitasking is …..Able to listen music while doing sth else on phone. Again win7 interface is about hub & tiles which help you to switch programs easily.
3)Bluetooth: Hmmm …..same questions….when was last time I transfer file via bluetooth on my hd2. Truth is …not even once. I need bluetooth….but not for transferring files but for pairing bluetooth devices like head phones etc. To transfer files…there are lots of other options.
4)Customization: I needed to customize my hd2 coz without that I can not run my damn hd2 smoothly…….no choice. Win7 is different league…..it is smooth as butter out of box. Anyway those third party stuffs hogs your memory & slow down your device.
Having said all that……..there will be update on Jan and will include all those above features if you desperately need them. I think MS is playing marketing game here. They can bloody spend 1bn dollar on marketing for win7…….why can't they include those simple above features?? Its not that….MS can not make those. They are the giant……….anyway just my 2 cents on win7 and I do not understand why ppl hate this awesome win7 for simply not having copy/paste. Remember iphone in early days??

Ajay Ghorawat, 23 Oct 2010so many games come in jar file format. Can I download them and play them. If yes which display... moreYes you can play .jar games.
When you install them just go to jblend in tools and you will see them there and that where you lunch them from.
Just know 2 things.
1. This phone does not have a physical key pad so you need to only install games that support touch screen.
2. Programs load from the top left of the screen. So a game 128x128 will only load in the first 128x128 pixels in that corner. The screen on this phone is 480x800 pixels so a game that small, I don’t think you will be able to control it.
Shokaman, 23 Oct 2010Hey, I downloaded this software. Didn't install it though yet. But the screenshots shows the l... moreYes is supports English.
I am using it in English.
You pick the language in the first time setup.
I think I saw 6 languages to pick from.
I can’t find my way back to that screen where I picked the language when I was setting it up (could be a onetime thing) so make sure to pick the right thing when setting up.

so many games come in jar file format. Can I download them and play them. If yes which display I mean (128 x 128) will run or not. Pls clear it.
Found this cool program using XDA Market.
It let's you use your HD2 as a Remote for your PC. One program with many interfaces.
1.remote for MediaPlayer
2.Touch pad for your mouse
5.Windows Media Center Remote.
And the nice part is it connects to your PC using WLAN. You don't even have to be in the room to have control.
Here is the link.
Anthony, 21 Oct 2010WOW! I take back my words about your Tec not knowing shit. The new battery you have, is it a... morei can't read bengali comments on Facebook from my htc. how an i get asian language support my phone?
Shokaman, 21 Oct 2010Hey Anthony, U know what, i just got a new Battery. Guess what, the phone is all good now!!! C... moreWOW!
I take back my words about your Tec not knowing shit.
The new battery you have, is it and Original or a generic?
Is the LED Orange when you plug it in to charge? That’s important; you don’t want to find out after, that it’s the charging connectors in the battery compartment that are damaged.
At least you got one good thing out of this. You are no longer running an old T-mobile ROM but the newest HTC factory unlocked ROM. (still don’t know how your phone could be T-mobile but have a S/N and be digitally signed as a UK factory unlocked phone.
If you are interested in doing some settings tweaking and some ROM storage cleaning up. Just let me known. Those are the things that keep the phone running smooth.
