HTC just announced the new HTC HD2 aka Leo for the European market. This monster comes with a 4.3 inch 480Ã—800 WVGA capacitive touch screen display which is the first windows mobile phone that uses capacitive touch. Although it seems to be quite bulky, the phone is only 11mm thick. Other than that, it also comes with Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional, which is also the first in HTC line that uses the attractive HTC Sense UI.
Why call this a monster? The freakin’ huge display for sure! It is 4.3 inches and it is way much bigger than the previous Touch HD. Under the hood, it is powered by 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 512MB ROM and 448MB of RAM. It just feels like combining 2 units of Touch HD into one! And yet, the 5MP camera comes with flash which was long gone since the Touch series were introduced.
With Android phones getting popular in the market, how well can this WM phone perform? Although it’s using the new WM 6.5, a lot of people still thinks it sucks though. Yet, with the high power processor under the hood, most probably it will perform well. I do hope that HTC will come out with a Android version though. Perhaps something like the rumored HTC Dragon.
