WM 6.5 HD2 with multi-touch screen coming to T-Mo
T-Mobile UK has put up a product page for the HTC Touch HD2 handset, revealing it will be out sometime this month. The device is the first Windows Mobile (6.5) smartphone to use a capacitive multi-input touchscreen. T-Mobile UK site visitors get the option to register and receive updates regarding the device.
In the US, the Touch HD2 is still expected to ship sometime early next year. Despite the teaser page, no prices for the phone at T-Mobile UK have been revealed. Also, the teaser page shows the original HTC Touch HD and not its successor, but this is likely to be a mistake on T-Mobile's part. At the same time, the page says users will be able to download applications from the Android Marketplace, mistakenly indicating the HD2 will run on Google's Android operating system.
Specs of the HD2 include a 4.3-inch touchscreen (T-Mobile lists the 3.8-inch touchscreen of the Touch HD) with 480x800 resolution, a 5-megapixel camera with dual LED flash and autofocus, as well as an accelerometer and 3.5mm audio jack. A GPS sensor is built-in, as is Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR functionality. The device also promises to be the first non-Android HTC phone to use the Sense UI and lets users customize the home screen with frequently used apps or websites. [via WMPowerUser]
