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.

yup, i think some people will think it's too big.  but it really isn't that big.  the screen space is maximized due to there being little bezel around it.

here, just a little comparison real quick...

Apple iPhone dimensions:

Height: 4.5 inches (115.5 mm)

Width: 2.4 inches (62.1 mm)

Depth: 0.48 inch (12.3 mm)


HTC HD2 dimensions:
Height: 4.74 inches (120.5 mm)
Width: 2.64 inches (67 mm)
Depth: 0.43 inches (11 mm)

just .24 inches taller and .24 inches wider.  but you're gaining a 4.3" screen over just a 3.5" inch one.

and thanks for the video, smotrs.

Yeah it's big, but most reports comment that due to how thin it is, that you don't notice the extra bulk over comaprably sized phones. So I imagine the user get's used to it rather quickly.

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).

which article are you referring to?

and if true, that could still mean T-Mobile or AT&T, since they have different 3G bands.

will prob be end of November before there's confirmation of carrier in the US.

i think if GSM it will be T-Mobile.  if CDMA, could be Sprint or Verizon honestly.

"HTC CEO Peter Chou has confirmed that HTC will be offering a US 3G version of the HD2 in Q1 2010"   - while some would consider CDMA 3G most would say it is GSM.  Otherwise everyone would sue ATT for lying about their 3G network being the fastest, most reliable and best coverage.

what you said after the quote is contradicting.  if AT&T would get sued for lying about their 3G network because it isn't the fastest would suggest that by saying "US 3G" version would be CDMA.  see what i'm saying?

regardless, i'll take that with a grain of salt, as it wasn't specifically said whether it would be GSM or CDMA.  you can't read between the lines like that.  i've also read that HTC CEO Peter Chou is known to say things that later had to be corrected.  HTC America hasn't confirmed yet whether the HD2 is even coming to the US.  so all the articles about "HTC HD2 coming to US in Q1 2010" are based off of just what Peter Chou said.  nothing more.

"The multi-touch Windows Mobile smartphone in its existing form is a GSM and HSPA device that would only need a switch in 3G support to work with AT&T or T-Mobile in the US. Many of HTC's phones are often converted for CDMA and EVDO, however, and could reach the US through Sprint or Verizon if a switch takes place."

could be anyone, but i still highly doubt AT&T.

also, it's worth noting that it could be sold unlocked through a retailer like bestbuy, since HTC sometimes goes that route.

No - sorry I don't see what you are saying.

I would be happier if Sprint included a HD2 like phone using the Android 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.
