Hey this is actually not the first phone with Snapdragon.
The first phone is Toshiba TG01 : WinMo but with lesser RAM and 4.1" display.
And since camera phones are more or less priced by the no. of MPx, TG01 has 3.2MP making it cheaper.
Technically, this phone only gives us Touch Sense with WinMo 6.5 on a 4.3" display that is not already out there.
some queries on the coreplayer... the video resolution quality seems not that good as compare to WM player, as well as the frame is not smooth. the audio sounds with some noise with it. i have tried editing some settings but could'nt fix it. anyone had same experiences that can suggest the recommended settings? thks....
I bought it from jampo shop city center but as I tld u it is useless under the sun and light ... the best thing is the display but in dark placess.. I think it was made 4 UROPE like Finland?
This phone looks awesome, great specs, but I would like to see it with android!
I think this phone has several inconsistencies. I would buy this phone but to think of it, the biggest selling point of it is the screen, which in turn make this phone less pocketable.
And it cannot be called an MID (ala N900). It can't replace a laptop/netbook.
WinMo 6.5, 5 MP cam are found in many phones now-a-days.
It actually finds a place somewhere between laptops and 3 to 3.2 inches mobile phones. Ofcourse laptops cannot make phone calls and it can, but I can't imagine a person holding one close to his ears.
Probably such a device can have best use as a MID but it needs a stronger OS. Maybe this phone is a bit to early into market and a little less equipped.

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Dear akshat,
In my country HTC HD2 cost RM 3,349.00 and HTC HERO RM 2239.00 (1 euro = RM 5.18)
So please calculate into IR
Thanks and regards
What the big hoo........haaaaa ?. Those who like iPhone go and buy iphone, those who like HTC HD , go and buy HTC HD, but if you like both and got spare cash , go and buy both. Nobody will stop you from buying anything. No need to quarell here. Bloggers here need some peace to read and decide for themselves.
Usually those who talk much is just empty container. Sounds loud nothing inside.
If you got constructive ideas or experiences using such a product(s), you are welcome to write your views. IF you got questions and need some answers or views from others why not ask here... Someday somebody will reply to your grouses.
Sooooooo. rather than keep annoying others , please do something better.
Thanks and regards to all.
Anthony, 13 Nov 2009install your apps on the SD cardSome apps you have to store on device not SD card.
High Tech, 13 Nov 2009Okay, I've had the HD2 for a day now. I will reframe from saying this or any phone is great or... moreOther things I don't like:
9.) No TV out
10.) Not alot of app storage. Only have 1xx MB memory for apps.
Okay, I've had the HD2 for a day now. I will reframe from saying this or any phone is great or best, because that means it can never topped. that said here's my first review:
Things I like so far:
1.) It's an HTC phone (more support, ROM's and updates, etc.). This is the main reason I purchased.
2.) Screen size 4.3 and Caps
3.) Phone looks real good. Nice form factor and two tone look.
4.) Movie viewing is nice (on big screen).
5.) Sence UI is nice (also like Spb Shell as well).
6.) OS is very fast and fluid.
7.) Feels good in the hand. Not too big.
8.) 65K colors is fine.
Things I don't like:
1.) Battery life not as good as some phones.
2.) Touch screen is real sensitive. Sometimes picks up the wrong letter, etc.
3.) Will not load movies in photo and video app.
4.) Camera sticks out in the back. Don't like to lay down on surface.
5.) Avi files play in windows media player not HTC player.
6.) Radio player didn't pickup all stations when scanned. Had to manually get some stations.
7.) Talking on call kinda a breaks up a little when listening to caller. Some phones have better speaker.
8.) Keeps trying to hookup to internet even though I don't have internet (Omnia 2 didn't do that. Keeps getting error message pops up.
In all the phone is a good phone. It meets my needs. I wouldn't say it's the best. It's one of the best phones on the market right now. The other good phone is the Omnia 2. Next year another phone will hit the market better than the HD2 and Omnia 2. That's the way of the world....
The HD2 is a busness phone first an entertainment phone second. The phone lives up to the hype. Also Windows mobile will alway be a business OS with comsumer features....... If this meets your NEEDS it's a must BUY......If not keep looking. I'll use the HD2 and Omnia 2 til at least 2012-2013. That's when WM7 and WM8 phones will be released....
I give it 5 thumbs up!!!!
So I am wondering, since this phone runs the windows platform, can it plug into a MAC computer and sync up or will it only plug into PCs?
Crash, 12 Nov 2009What happen to TV out...hmmm... its a good device with fast CPU more ram - the rom is ok 512..... moreWhat's better about the X2? The fact that it has TV out? Check the specs side by side, and you will see the HD2 is miles ahead of the X2. Except for only minor changes, the X2 is the same as the X1.....
