  • Froyo Ported To the HD2

    If you picked up the HD2 and realized that you basically bought a WinMo lemon, never fear. Some charming Italian men have ported Android 2.2 Froyo to the HD2 and it seems to run everything perfectly. Basically if you run their hack, which is available here, you turn your WinMo 6.5 phone into the a Droid X or EVO 4G. Great, right? Read More

    Review: HTC HD2 on T-Mobile


    Short Version: Pity the poor HD2. It’s one of the most amazing phones I’ve seen all year but like some ultra-evolved dinosaur at the end of the Cretaceous period, it was born just as a cataclysmic asteroid (Windows Phone 7) was about to change the entire ecosystem. Still, for someone looking for a great media phone and one of the best Windows Mobile Phones I’ve ever seen… Read More

    Weekend Giveaway: An HTC HD2 from T-Mobile

    Wakey wakey, eggs and a culturally accepted meat or vegetable product that can be diminutized to rhyme with “wakey!” Have we got a surprise for you. This weekend we’re giving away an HTC HD2 GSM phone for T-Mobile. If you recall, the HD2 is a glorious Windows Mobile 6.5 phone with lots of great things built-in including a huge, beautiful screen, Wi-Fi, and it even comes with… Read More

  • Quick Look: The HTC HD2 on T-Mobile

    Here’s a quick look at the first US version of the HTC HD2, a really nice Windows Mobile 6.5 phone. We’ve have plenty of coverage of this phone over the past few months but now it’s available on T-Mobile for $200 with contract. It’s a really beautiful phone – and I don’t say that much – but will it take off with WinPho waiting in the wings? Read More

    $199, March 24th release for HD2 on T-Mo confirmed

    We knew about the pricing, but until today, we weren’t sure exactly which day the HD2 was going to hit T-Mobile. So long, ignorance! March 24th it is! There’s more stuff going down at an HD2 event as I write this, if I’m not mistaken, and we’ll have the whole business for you shortly. There’s a lot of white space here, so I’m going to editorialize. I know… Read More

  • Video: The HTC HD2 might not run Windows Phone 7, but it can run Windows 95!

    We know what you’re thinking. “Man! Now that Microsoft has confirmed (and re-confirmed) that the HD2 won’t be getting an (officially endorsed) upgrade to Windows Phone 7, I can only hope that it will some day be able to run a desktop OS from fifteen years ago!” Well, friend, that day has come.

  • Official HTC step-by-step video for disassembling the HTC HD2

    Well this is interesting. Generally end users need to rely on 3rd party manuals and a bit of experimenting to tear apart a gadget. But this appears to be an official HTC guide for disassembling and reassembling the hot HTC HD2. Chances are HTC didn’t release it, though. Many thanks goes out to the enterprising person that did. The world would be a better place if we had such a… Read More

    Microsoft: No, WinMo 6.5 devices will not be upgraded to Windows Phone 7

    Cue the sad trombone, folks. If you were waiting around with your Windows Mobile 6.5 device with hopes that Microsoft would one day bless it with a new chance at life in the form of Windows Phone 7, it’s time to move on. Read More

    Adobe Flash 10.1 holds out for Windows Phone 7, 6.5 devices can haz upgrade to WP7?

    Just the other day, hearts were broken all over the world when Microsoft said that current Windows Mobile 6.5 devices won’t be able to upgrade to Windows Phone 7. The good news is that might not entirely be true as Microsoft said on Twitter that it’s entirely up to hardware manufacturers. Way to confuse us! Another area where WinMo 6.5 gets no love? Adobe Flash 10.1. Read More

    No, that shot of the HTC HD2 running Windows Phone is not real

    This alleged snapshot of Windows Phone 7 Series running on the HTC HD2 has hit our inbox roughly a dozen times already, so I figured we’d go ahead and clear things up: No, it is not real. It’s really, really late here in Barcelona (as in 4:30 AM), so I’ve got to make this quick for the sake of getting any sleep tonight. Read More

    T-Mobile gives an HTC HD2 reminder, now with more fun!

    Last week, T-Mobile teased us all with a little jab on Twitter about the HTC HD2 that it will be shipping soon. It was exciting and, to be frank, it made me a little antsy. As promised, T-Mobile announced new features for the HD2 at Mobile World Congress today and I’ve gotta say, it isn’t all that thrilling. Read More

    T-Mobile toys with our emotions, says HTC HD2 announcement coming next week

    Suspense and anticipation are sometimes far more satisfying than the actual reward, but I’m hoping that’s not the case for T-Mobile. From its official Twitter account, T-Mobile USA taunts us and pokes at what little we apparently know about the HTC HD2. Then it makes us wait a whole week before we find out what the hype is all about. Read More

    HTC to sell 8 handsets through T-Mobile alone in 2010?

    Making 8 different handsets is no big feat — Hell, Samsung will probably launch 4 or 5 by the time I’m done typing this post — but getting 8 handsets onto one carrier in one year? Not too shabby. Read More

  • Will It Break? HTC HD2 gets dropped. You know you like these videos

    As much as we rag on Windows Mobile (and that’s a lot), I have to say that the HD2 is a handsome phone and I’d be proud to sport it. That’s what gives the short video above some of its tension. You could drop a CLIQ and I wouldn’t flinch — in fact, I encourage you to drop your CLIQ. But this HD2 is a pretty little object and I don’t want it to come to any harm. Read More

    Boston Acoustics Receptor Radio: It's HD

    Sure it costs $300, doesn’t have a CD player and high definition radio probably isn’t available in your area, but who cares?! It’s HD capable, and what’s more important than being an early adopter? This tabletop unit from Boston Acoustics is pretty barren, but it’s stylish face might be enough to woo some buyers. The system features two speakers, one in the… Read More
