I think HTC and Microsoft knew when the HD2 was released that it wouldn't get the update. These companies work hand in hand together. The HD2 sales helped HTC, and not providing a WM7 update helps MS. Who would buy the new WM7 phones if the HD2 was to get the update? I wouldn't.. I know Xda or others will cook up a ROM, but they can be buggie... If the news is true, it would be disappointing to say the least. But not heart broken. I still like the HD2 and what it brings to the table.. I just think they knew when they released the HD2 it wouldn't get the official update, but HTC put in good hardware for developers to make a WM7 ROM for the HD2... I know how companies work together when they release products. My company does the same thing. We know well in advance what products will still work with new released product, and which ones will not.... No company will come out and say "don't buy this because it may not work the next product release".. It's bad for business. The only down side is that you will loose some previous customers that bought the previous released item, who's mad that the new product doesn't work with the previous product.

Are (start, back, and search) so there is nothing saying a phone canít have dedicated answer, hang-up and volume keys
If HTC want, they can map search to the home key and the HD2 already have the start and back key.

Nothing about win mo 7 is set in stone as yet. Take a look at the 2 links below and come back and tell us know what you think after reading it. (I think is still too early in the year to say)
Anonymous, 01 Mar 2010Well looks like the HD2 will not get WM7 update. The reason is lame. HD2 has 5 buttons instead of 3 buttons. My next phone will not be an HTC phone. Will see what other players come out with this year and next.
Well HD2 owners. Looks like the HD2 will not get the WM7 update (see GSM Arena post)... If that's true I'm done with HTC.. My reason for getting the HD2 was possiblly getting WM7.. I will look else where for my new phone if I decide to update my phone. At this point I don't see myself updating to WM7 not time soon. Wm7 UI isn't all that great to me. You cannot customize the UI. I don't want a standard UI for my phones....
Well HD2 owners...LOOKS like the HD2 will not get the WM7 update after all...The reason is LAME (doesn't have the three buttons. HD2 has five buttons)...If this be the case. I'm done with HTC for phones....I will look else where for my next phone, if I update to WM7... Right now I don't see myself updating to WM7 no time soon...........The WM7 UI is not that great to me, and it's not customizable...See link:

Is there anybody out there who knows whether there are any free software which can send email as sms for HTC HD2 just like in Blackberry. See, I have emails which I need to send out to my colleagues when the are out of office. At this moment, I am using my E90 to send out this email via sms from computer from through Nokia PC suite, which is a copy and paste thing. I hope one of these days the word sms be given a big brother name as "LMS" because I usually send long messages.
I wonder if HTC is interested to develop this kind of software in the email menu button like "send message as SMS"
have just down loaded www.tvcatchup.com via skyfire browser.....excellent shows all freeview channels
great quality just thought I'd pass it on as it works great on HTC HD2 and its FREE!!!
I am looking to stream live scottish football(soccer)UK matches that are not on Sky or ESPN to my HTC HD2 any one know any web sites compatable with windows mobile 6.5??????

Unlike the iPhone OS, the WinMo OS leaves allot of its settings up to the user to configure to there linking. Because there are so many different phones using the OS there is not way that one setting could fit them all. So it is left up to the user to configure/tweak. And that is what most people either hate or love about WinMo.

Go for HD2, it's fast. Screen is wide and it has got the built in WIFI router which no other phone has. Internet, not a problem if you live in a 3g covered area. Go for unlimited data. You can browse until you faint. Trust me.
I've had this phone over a month now. So far everyting about the phone is great, except it's without the qwerty keyboard. Does anyone out there knows which OPERA version supports flash video? Tried the pre-installed opera for flash video playing but it didn't work. Any suggestions on the suitable web browser for this baby, I need a free browser.
I have installed skyfire on it but there is no audio.
