LAS VEGAS â€“ Jan. 6, 2010 â€“ T-Mobile USA, Inc. and HTC today announced that HTC HD2Ã¤ is expected to be available for the first time in the U.S. exclusively from T-Mobile USA this spring. With its industry-leading, high-resolution, 4.3-inch capacitive touch display and high-powered features, the ultrathin HTC HD2 phone delivers content in a sharper, brighter and richer way.
The HTC HD2 comes equipped with the 1GHz Snapdragonâ„¢ by Qualcomm mobile processor and utilizes T-Mobileâ€™s high-speed 3G network for a fast mobile data experience.
â€œT-Mobile and HTC have a long history of partnering to deliver innovative, cutting-edge products to T-Mobile customers,â€ said George Harrison, vice president, marketing product innovation, T-Mobile USA. â€œThe HTC HD2 delivers a thin, sophisticated design and powerful features that we are excited to add to our dynamic smartphone lineup this spring.â€
The HTC HD2 is the first WindowsÂ® phone with HTC Sense, a software experience focused on putting people at the center by making their phones work in a more simple, natural and personal way. With the HTC Sense experience, the HTC HD2 includes a variety of enhancements that expand and improve the overall phone experience. For example, the HTC HD2 includes a proximity sensor that is used to prevent false screen touches when the phone is picked up to answer or make a call, and a light sensor automatically adjusts the brightness of the display.
â€œCombining the intuitive user interface based on HTC Sense with an outstanding set of specifications and the powerful T-Mobile network, the HTC HD2 adds up to be not only an amazing device, but an amazing experience as well,â€ said Jason Mackenzie, vice president of HTC America. â€œThe HTC HD2 is a Windows phone that has already been enthusiastically received in Europe and Asia, and we are excited to bring this highly anticipated device to the U.S., exclusively through T-Mobile USA.â€
The HTC HD2 uses the first capacitive touch display on a Windows phone for the smoothest possible performance and to make viewing, zooming and resizing Web sites, Microsoft Office files, PDF documents and pictures easier with just a simple pinching motion. The large capacitive display makes it easy to read and reply to Outlook e-mails, edit a Word document or modify an Excel spreadsheet right from the HTC HD2. In addition, the HTC HD2 delivers advanced phone features including GPS functionality, a Web browser, and an advanced 5 megapixel auto-focus camera with dual LED flash for capturing images, even in dim conditions.
