T-Mobile USA’s HTC HD2 has 1GB of ROM, more RAM; might get WM7
T-Mobile USA’s subscribers will be able to buy the HTC HD2 much later than many European and Asian users, but their wait won’t be in vain – it looks like they’ll have the best HD2 made by HTC until now.
According to the smartphone’s official page found at HTC USA’s website, T-Mobile’s HD2 will come with 1GB of ROM and 576MB of RAM – instead of 512MB of ROM and 448MB of RAM like the original version. Even more, the US version of the HD2 will be offered with a 16GB card in the box, and not with a 2GB one like the European/Asian version.
The handset’s other features seem to remain unchanged (4.3 inch touchscreen display with 800 x 480 pixels, HSPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, 5MP camera with flash and so on). However, although at launch T-Mo’s HD2 will run Windows Mobile 6.5, the smartphone might be upgraded to Windows Mobile 7 when this becomes available – especially since it will have the required 1GB of ROM specified in that leaked WM7 Chassis 1.
The HD2 should be available at T-Mobile USA starting this spring. Its price is not known at the moment, but I guess it will be of $200 or more on contract.
