HTC HD2

The "Leo" is actually the HD2.

I hope one of the USA network carriers like Sprint decide to release the HD2. This device has many people interested in the device and has created a lot of buzz on various cell phone forums. To me, this is the first device that can truly overtake the revered iPhone based on features.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Here are some videos to explain why this phone is getting a lot of attention. You may notice in the video that the phone is labeled as Pro.Three, however this was filler text since the official release name of HD2 as been revealed.

The HD2 would be a great item to release Q4 2009 or Q1 2010 in the USA even though the HD never was released in the USA.

I would be happier if Sprint included a HD2 like phone using the Andriod OS in 2009. The Hero just does not have enough CPU, memory and features of the HD2 to make me what to buy the Hero.

don't hold your breath lol

2010 there's hope.

I agree. Sprint should recognize that Verizon & Google are going to co-develop Android phones which could quickly erode Sprint's phone lineup depending how much Verizon is going to change from their closed or in-house approach. Verizon is going to allow Google Voice.

To me, the winner is the software and the applications provided by the phone with sufficient computing power. Of course, the device must perform its primary role of being a phone with great call clarity and phone functions.

We should come up with some kind of petition to get Sprint to Carry the HTC HD2, or threaten not to renew the contract.

Here's a nice LONG video regarding the HD2. Lots of new screen displays being shown that haven't before.

Unfortunately the article says it will be coming to the US on GSM in Q1 2010 - who knows when or if someone like Sprint would order a CDMA version.   One more reason I wish Sprint didn't have a locked network - then the people who actually want good phones would let the manufacturers know so we could get them sooner.   Who even knows if someone at Sprint who is ordering phones even knows if this phone exists (or how they got their job in the first place).

The video is back online at the link below.

When viewing the video starting about 5:47, the icon that is selected is called PrivacyMode which displays a screen with the title of "CDMA Preferred Privacy Mode" with two options of Enabled or Disabled. In the video, neither option is set. My guess is since the phone in the video is on GSM network, the CDMA Preferred Privacy Mode is not available to be set to either option. Hopefully this means that a CDMA version is in the works and that a CDMA version is coming to the USA.

The CDMA privacy mode is part of the standard generic WM setup for all HTC phones.  They tweak it (remove it) from WM GSM phone firmware for general release.    Mind you, I really really want this phone on CDMA (Sprint) but right now there are no indications that a CDMA version is even in the works yet.

Hopefully someone will release something that indicates otherwise SOON.
