Kevin Lewis, SVP of digital entertainment at Blockbuster, appears to have confirmed the March 24th ship date for the T-Mobile HTC HD2.
And while this may be a few weeks away, T-Mobile users are in for a real treat with their entertainment optimised device, which due to the added services will really live up to its potential.
Lewis talked about the Blockbuster application on the Windows Mobile handset.
The service, a first for Blockbuster, will allow users to buy or rent new release movies playable on their phones without first accessing a personal computer or being a Blockbuster subscriber.
More importantly, owners of a HTC HD2 phone can stop and pause a movie download, and continue watching it on an Internet-connected television or Blu-ray Disc player that features Blockbuster On Demand.
Lewis called the T-Mobile/HTC deal is akin to putting "Blockbuster in your pocket."
With a music store by Amazon, book store by Barnes and Noble, streaming TV by MobiTV and of course the full range of Windows Mobile entertainment software the T-Mobile US version of the handset is certainly set to the the best HTC HD2 yet.
