Mobile-review’s HTC HD2 preview now in English


We enjoyed the Google-translated version of Mobile-review’s HTC HD2 preview, but unless you enjoy Engrish you will probably enjoy the properly translated version more.

Below is their conclusion, which reads much better than the earlier version:

All there is left to say is that the HD2 also comes armed with a whole array of minor enhancements that we’ll need to examine closer before making any definitive conclusions. But for now let us say that the "brand-new" Sense user interface is nothing but another way to generate hype around the HD2 – in reality, that’s exactly the codename HTC will be using for their WM- and Android-based interfaces from now on. Furthermore, the HD2’s Sense is the good old TouchFLO 3D – in a new wrapping, with some major improvements and a plethora of new features, yet the same UI and menu setup.

I believe that the HD2 will come jam-packed with various wow-features, such as animated weather effects on the home screen – whereas previously you had to jump into a separate tab to enjoy the sight of raindrops falling on the screen or floating clouds, the HD2 offers these marvels right on the standby screen.

But rest assured, upon closer examination we’ll find a whole bunch of shortcomings in the HD2 (and I feel like the first drawback we’ll run into will be its battery time), but since I’m yet to delve deep into its features, let me share my personal thoughts about the device. It does impress, just like the iPhone stunned us with its sleek design or the Diamond with its incredibly pocketable casing, or the original Touch. When you start playing around with the HD2 you suddenly realize that it’s still possible to find mind-boggling phones even these days, and that’s worth something already. And by the way, if you have come like it, better start saving money now, as the HD2 is very unlikely to retail for less than 900-1000$.
