T-Mobile invites us to play with HTC HD2

We’re already seeing the HTC HD2 in the wild and we’ll be getting a much closer look at the handset during a T-Mobile event March 16. We’ll know a lot more come next Tuesday, but the stars are aligning for a March 24 release for about $199 with a new, two-year contract.

With a 1Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, high-resolution 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen, WiFi, 3G, Bluetooth, GPS, a microSD slot, and Blockbuster On Demand integration, the HD2 would have been positively drool-worthy a few months ago. Unfortunately, this handset will only run Windows Mobile 6.5 and it likely won’t ever be able to upgrade to the intriguing Windows Phone 7 Series.

Putting aside the negativities, this is going to be a beast of a smartphone and definitely one of the most powerful you can get from a T-Mobile store. It’ll come preloaded with the Transformers movies (if that’s your thing), and Windows Mobile is still a more-than-capable operating system. Besides, at least you’ll be able to make your HD2 look like WP7S with cool themes.

    Apart from the fact it is stuck on the obsolete Windows Mobile 6.x, the screen is also an older style TFT LCD screen, rather than the newer and brighter AMOLED screens going into other HTC phones like the Google Nexus One.

    Windows 7 blows, stop talking down the HD2. Sense is epic
