This phone lacks only one thing...the operating system... Win mobile (how hard Microsoft tries to make it feel and look good) never will be a good choice for the phone (or the PC).
I am feeling a little bit jealous of the U.S. version of the HD2.
448MB RAM, 512MB ROM EUROPEAN/ASIAN HD2'S
576MB RAM, 1GB ROM USA HD2'S
This news brings a :(
In other news, it seems that "AUDIO BOOST" is acting up. If I turn it on, it stays on for the duration of whatever song was playing when I turned it on. By the 3rd song, if I go into the menu, it will say that it's "ON" but if I turn it off, there is no audio difference...and then if I press "ON" once again, you notice the difference.
Is this known to happen to anyone else? If so, is there a fix/remedy?
I've also noticed that if I set my Alarm Clock from the phone to ring at a certain time, it will not obey said commands until ALL DAYS OF THE WEEK starting from Monday all the way to Sunday are highlighted and marked. Most people do a Mon - Fri type of setup, and as such the alarm will not go off...but I'm going to look into this issue further and keep you all posted. Let me know if anyone has encountered this problem/issue as well.
I want to buy this phone but the only thing stopping me is the colors.
How does it do with watching DIVX movies? Can you tell that its only 65k colors?

High Tech, 26 Jan 2010Here is what the HD3 might be. If true this will be my next phone: We all know that the lin... moreyeah rite ... fat hopes on HD3. First try to get HD2 to work well, still cannot resolve sms problems and camera issue. Whats the point of having 1GHz chipset and 4.3 inch screen when u can't do the basics. Sound quality is also horrible. Do yourself a favour, go get the SE X2, its awesome. even with same hw as X1, it delivers as a phone and a pda!
Here is what the HD3 might be. If true this will be my next phone:
We all know that the line between smartphones and portable computers is getting thinner and thinner with every new release of a more powerful handset, yet it seems that HTC might actually make that line totally disappear with the release of HD2's successor, none other than the HD3. This device is expected to arrive on the market sometime in November 2010, while running under Microsoft's yet unreleased Windows Mobile 7, and including some specifications that about one year ago were suitable for a netbook.
The specs on HTC HD3 arrived into the wild via QQ.com, and the guys over at pocketnow say that they might actually have some chances of proving real in the end. That November release date and the Windows Mobile 7 OS on board are among the specs that seem feasible, and one should agree that the same applies to a 1GB of RAM and ROM the device is said to arrive with, or to the 16GB of additional onboard storage that it might feature.
Given the WM 7 OS and what we already know on it, one should expect the phone to arrive with enhanced hardware capabilities, that's for sure. Thus, the inclusion of a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU with it might also sound plausible, even if the processor was said to arrive in devices only in 2011. Also at the thin line between reality and exaggeration is the 4.5-inch dimension of the screen (HD2 has a 4.3-inch one, large enough already). As for connectivity options, we can count Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP, as well as support for WiMAX and Wi-Fi.
Other specifications of the device further include a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution for the display, which should also come with support for 16 million colors and with multi-touch capabilities, an 8.0-megapixel photo snapper with Xenon flash, and a 1800mAh battery inside, so as to have enough power to fuel the speedy processor. HDMI, USB 2.0, and 3.5mm ports are said to be there as well, along with a microSD memory card slot with support for up to 32GB of additional storage space.
For the time being, we'll take this with a big grain of salt, but that does not stop us from hoping that the rumor might pan out in the end.
Hey check out what the HD3 might be. If this comes true, this will be my next phone? I'm looking for a phone that can play and record in true HD. Putting my pennies away now for next released phones for this year and 2011. Waiting to see what's coming?? See link:

Henning Ras, 25 Jan 2010You can go the following website and download a free version of Pocket Esword. You also must ... morePocket E-sword is in my view the best Bible software for the PocketPC. Unfortunately, Rick Meyers (the author) has stopped supporting or developing it. It does not work well with VGA.
