Can't understand why you'd think that... these are the epitome of all Windows Mobile handsets ever produced, indeed they were the swansong of the Windows Mobile era.

Microsoft and HTC had to custom-develop this phone to support many modern features that were not natively supported by the 6yr old WinMo OS and thus previous Windows Mobile handsets, such as capacitive touchscreen support, the powerful ARM A8 CPU etc...

In addition to which, they are pretty much the only Windows Mobile handset, that can, out of the box, run the new Windows Phone 7 operating system without serious revision, and actually has the power to do so smoothly (relating to the fact the all-singing, all-dancing HD7 was generally accepted as an updated HD2 rather than a new handset).

Good luck with the Sale smile

I had the HTC Hd2 and I flashed android onto it and it became a completely different phone! The phone itself is good but the windows operating system on it is not. So anyone that thinks of buying it don't hesitate but get it flashed to android and you have a top notch smart phone.

Of course it is, for those who don't know how to use it/are not used to it. I've personally used it for years, and it is absolutely fantastic, epic battery life, very fast and stable, Flash support, IEM that actually replicates a desktop experience, as well as Opera Mini if you want it, Microsoft Office is included as standard (and they say it's only available on WP7 lol) and tens of thousands of apps that are actually worth using (generally proper, in-depth applications rather than cut-down or pointless things), all available for free via the warez community, you just have to know what a .cab file is and your way around the file-manager (it's just like using Windows to install a .exe, not difficult) - or you can alternatively use the Microsoft Windows Mobile Marketplace if you really are too simple to understand this, though you won't be able to get warez apps.

I find it very interesting that most delivery/courier companies and haulage companies etc, are still using PocketPC/Windows Mobile if it is so terrible... not to mention the hundreds of thousands of EPOS systems across the country in all your pubs etc that rely on Windows CE 5 (the same kernel used in WinMo).

As said above, for those who find it too complicated, stick to iOS.

With the HD2, you have the best of both worlds, for those who prefer control and geekiness, you have the option of Windows Mobile and/or Android (hell you can dual-boot the bloody things), or of course for those who want modern and simplicity, you have the added option of Windows Phone 7, which blows both the former OS's away in terms of GUI.

A cracking phone for all but the most-hardened iOS fanboi. Now you have been given a lesson in the workings of an HD2, can you please stop shitting on this mans thread, thank you!!
