T-Mobile officially confirms its version of HTC HD2 details; Stay tuned for a March 24 release

March 17, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

It is official. The official details about the HTC HD2 that would hop on to the T-Mobile network have been let out by the carrier. The decision to make things official came close on the heels of a leak. T-Mobile will bring to customers the new HTC smartphone on March 24, and that date is just a few days away.

The Windows Mobile smartphone, when it debuts in markets, will cost $200 when subsidized by a two-year contract. Even More Plus plan subscribers can also pay the $450 unsubsidized price up front in return for lower rates, say people in the know.  For that amount, it is quite a steal, considering the fact that the HTC HD2 is the most advanced Windows Mobile 6.5 device to date. Further, the capacitive touchscreen is a first that offers multi-touch gestures thanks to HTC’s smart technologies.

Features such as the fast paced 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 5-megapixel camera, GPS, Wi-Fi and microSDHC storage make the HTC HD2 a must buy by all means. One concern, however, would that you will not be able to upgrade to Windows Phone 7 thanks to the nature of the control layout. All said, the HTC HD2 smartphone would come as an enhancing factor on T-Mobile. This version of the handset now switches to the carrier’s 3G network, and will come preloaded with apps such as Barnes & Noble’s e-reader, Blockbuster’s movie streaming service and MobiTV for Internet streaming TV. If you would like more of that, you will get six months of free Gogo in-flight Wi-Fi and both modern-day Transformers movies. Sounds luring, indeed.
