HTCâ€™s HD2 car kit has just become a lot less cool. Devicewire has given tracyandmatt.co.uk notice that the cradle will no longer have the old design that used a custom backplate, but a new but simpler design that attaches to the bottom microUSB port.
While the new design is now much less sexy, it is much more practical than the earlier version, as the backplate was quite thick. The price is still a high Â£61 however, which is no longer justified by the innovation and design in the old version, so I suspect this will no longer be a big seller.
The cradle is available for pre-order at DeviceWire here.
