As most HTC HD2 owners know, the device is extremely short of internal storage, despite the 512 MB Flash ROM.  This is not helped by Marketplace, which insists on installing to internal memory.

It seems T-Mobile US owners will not have to suffer these HTC foibles, as their device will have a whole 512 MB extra Flash storage.  They will also have a whole 128 MB extra RAM.

While the reason for these discrepancies are not clear, one strong suspicion may be that the T-Mobile version of the device is the only one destined for a Windows Mobile 7 upgrade.  According to the leaked Chassis 1 specs the minimum internal storage for a Windows Mobile 7 handset is 1 GB, a bar which the European version of the handset certainly does not reach.

To add insult to injury the T-Mobile version will also come with a 16 GB memory card, versus the useless 2 GB card that came with the European version.

Do our readers think only the T-Mobile version, which will be launched after MWC, will be the only one getting Windows Mobile 7?  Let us know below.
