With the ROM leaked few weeks ago, we knew that the HTC HD 2 will arrive to T-Mobile sooner or later.
T-Mobile is only saying that the debut will be in the spring. The price for the U.S. version is still unknown.
This announcement was made during a keynote address by Microsoft’ CEO Steve Ballmer at the Consumer Electronics Show, going on this week in Las Vegas. This is going to be great upgrade of the T-Mobile Touch Pro 2.
The HTC HD2 is the first Windows Mobile smartphone with a capacitive display that supports multi-touch, so users can resize websites, Microsoft Office files, PDF documents and pictures easier with a pinch of their fingers.
This 4.3-inch display is the largest yet on a smartphone running Microsoft’s OS, and has a WVGA (800×480) resolution.
