HTC makes the HD2 (Leo) official

Shortly after Microsoft has confirmed the upcoming release of HTC HD2, HTC itself has officially announced the new Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphone as well.

Presented as the first Windows phone with HTC Sense (the UI that’s also used on the Android-powered HTC Hero), the HTC HD2 obviously comes to replace the 2008 HTC HD.

HTC hasn’t confirmed all the specs of HD2 yet, but it did say that the smartphone comes with: a 4.3 inch capacitive WVGA touchscreen display, Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU at 1Ghz, Microsoft Exchange, proximity sensor, light sensor, Wi-Fi, 5MP photo camera, and HTC Peep – a new Windows-based version of HTC’s Twitter application.

Customers will be able to buy an optional car kit, which “automatically transforms HD2s user interface into a finger friendly in-car navigation experience for driving.”

HTC HD2 WM 65 official

HTC HD2 will be first available via Orange France, starting the next few weeks. By the end of October, the smartphone will reach other European markets too.

HTC didn’t announce the price of HD2.

    I must admit I almost lost hope in Windows Mobile but this one… this one is so impressive it’s few leagues higher than other WinMo phones.
    I had a chance to use it for one night, and what a night it was… sigh…
    Gigantic screen (WVGA with capacitive touch), amazingly fast, huge size but very thin.

    Anyways, Windows Mobile needs few more of those, capacitive screen, great performance, completely customized UI, that will (maybe) minimize the damage until Windows Mobile 7 is released…

    Oh, and the multi-touch works very nice BTW…
