We finally have an HTC HD2 in our very own hands (thanks to a friendly neighbour!), and we can publish our first impressions.
The device is larger and heavier than expected, and dominated by the massive screen. The soft touch paint on the the back in combination with the aluminium cover feels excellent, and certainly conveys and impression if the expensive device it is.
The device launches with an extensive tutorial which will certainly reduce HTCâ€™s return rate, but disappointingly it does not include Windows Live and Microsoft MyPhone setup, which I feel is an opportunity missed. Having my twitter and Youtube account and Exchange server set up from the get do, all within HTCâ€™s finger-friendly UI is however very nice.
The location tracking feature is scarily accurate, down the the right suburb, and that’s without any SIM card or GPS, simply using WIFI.
The UI is excellent and extremely responsive.
We will post some more impressions once we have our data and applications transferred to the device.
