T-Mobile started selling HTC HD2 phones based on Windows Mobile 6.5 in stores earlier today, however, it looks like the phone was so popular that T-Mobile retail stores have run out of stock in the first few hours itself.
I came across several forum users who said that T-Mobile stores were sold out as early as 9:30AM in some places. Others were able to purchase the phone from Walmart, however, more and more users are returning empty handed from the T-Mobile stores.
TMO News also came across sources who said that the HTC HD2 were sold out across most of the retail stores. However, some stores still have the device in stock, so you might want to rush to the store before they sell out too.
Everything aside, if you do not get your hands on the HTC HD2, you can always order it online at the T-Mobile store and pick it up in-store after they have restocked in a day or two.
Earlier this month we told you about the pricing for the HTC HD2 on T-Mobile USA. Now, we have some more good news for you, T-Mobile USA has officially begun the sale of HTC HD2 on their website.
As we told you earlier, the phone will sell for $200 with a 2 year contract, users who do not want to be bound by the contract can purchase the phone for $450.
HTC HD2 has a 1Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with 512MB ROM and 448MB RAM. and a 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen. The phone also has support for Wi-Fi and has a built-in GPS. The camera on the phone is 5 Megapixel and it also comes with a 16GB Memory card.
The HTC HD2 runs on Windows Mobile 6.5 and also comes with HTC Sense. You can purchase the phone on the Official T-Mobile site by visiting this link.
HTC HD2 is probably one of the most awaited Windows mobile device which will be released later this month on T-mobile. HTC HD2 has a 1Ghz Processor, 4.3-inch TFT capacitive touch display, 512 MB ROM, 448 MB RAM, EDGE, 3G, Windows Media Player, Digital compass, Pocket Office, HTC Peep, HTC Footprints, Facebook and Twitter integration, A-GPS and an excellent 5 mega-pixel camera with autofocus and dual LED flash.
A XDA forum member spotted the price of the HD2 in fine print on the T-mobile site. The fine print states:
â€ On approved credit. $112.50 down payment, plus 3 monthly payments of $112.50, required. 0% APR. Taxes & fees additional. Available only at T-Mobile-owned retail stores; see store for details.
â€ â€ On approved credit. $22.50 down payment, plus 19 monthly payments of $22.50, required. 0% APR. Taxes & fees additional. Available only at T-Mobile-owned retail stores; see store for details.
Totaling both of these puts the price of HTC HD2 at $450 without a contract. The HTC HD2 will be subsidized at $200 when you buy it with a 2 year T-mobile contract. An unlocked HTC HD2 sells for more than $700 on Amazon, so getting at $450 is definitely a bargain.
So would buy the HTC HD2 when it starts selling in the states? What would you prefer a contracted phone or a non-contracted phone?
Even before Microsoft announced Windows Phone 7 Series there were reports of HTC HD2 aka HTC Leo would be the only Windows Mobile 6.5 phone that would qualify for an upgrade to Windows Phone 7. After the announcement of Windows Phone 7, there was an alleged leaked image of the HTC HD2 running Windows Phone 7, the image was declared a fake. A Microsoft official while talking on the Engadget Show said that some Windows Mobile 6.5 phones can support Windows Phone 7 and it is upto the OEMs (manufacturers) to decide. With all those mixed signals, Microsoft’s Natasha Kwan, General Manager for Microsoft’s Mobile Communications Business in the Asia-Pacific region in an interview to APC magazine categorically stated that the HTC HD2 will not qualify for an upgrade to Microsoft’s latest mobile phone OS since it doesn’t have the three buttons.
The mini’s are in form. After the success of Nokia N97 mini after Nokia N97 doomed, many other mobile device manufacturers have started bringing in the mini version of their models. Today, at the Mobile World Congress 2010, HTC has launched HTC HD Mini, which is said to be younger and cheaper version of HTC HD2 but with similar experience. The HTC HD Mini is sleek and provides almost similar experience as that of HTC HD2.
HTC HD Mini is powered with Windows mobile 6.5.3 (YES! the OLD crappy windows mobile OS) with HTC Sense. Of course, Windows phone 7 series isn’t coming anytime before the year end, so can’t complain. Apart from that, HTC HD Mini comes with a Capacitive touch screen, 512MB ROM, 384MB RAM, 3.2â€³ HVGA display, 5MP camera. It also comes with support for 3G connectivity and GPS. This is the second Windows Mobile phone, after HTC HD2, to have a capacitive display.
HTC HD mini will be available to customers across Europe and Asia beginning in April 2010.
