Pinch of salt time, but msmobiles have heard from an unnamed source that HTC are planning to offer an official Windows Mobile 7 upgrade for the HTC HD2 as soon as Microsoft formally announce the new smartphone platform. The site is declining to reveal who their source is, and HTC have never confirmed that they plan to bring the HD2 up to speed with WM7, which is expected to arrive near the end of 2010.
While we'd love this to pan out, the old adage that you should buy a device because it serves your needs now, rather than for what it might or might not do X months down the line, holds true. The HD2 is a great smartphone - check out our review here - but until HTC publicly confirm that a Windows Mobile 7 update program will be offered, you probably shouldn't let the rumor tip your hand.
