HTC HD2 tweak enables WiFi N support

HTC HD2 tweak enables WiFi N support

As if the HTC HD2 needed any more hyperbole, it's now emerged that the Windows Phone can actually be coaxed to use WiFi 802.11n networks rather than just the advertised b/g support.  The tweak was identified over at xda-developers and requires a registry hack; however some users have reported significant increases in battery consumption when the higher-speed wireless is switched on.

Zooomer adds full multitouch zoom to HTC HD2

Zooomer adds full multitouch zoom to HTC HD2

A week ago we described HTC's HD2 as the poster-child for Windows Mobile 6.5, despite HTC having to replace, rework or generally junk a lot of the Microsoft OS' native functionality and replace it with their own.  One such change - and a particularly welcome one at that - is multitouch support, but HTC have limited its use in the final build to the browser and a few other apps.  Now there's a nifty app which unlocks multitouch support in every app system-wide.

Zooomer for the HTC HD2 will work with any .exe executable file on the Windows Phone, and basically add in multitouch control.  That's going to be of mixed use, of course, since not all apps will really benefit from it, but we're glad to at least have the choice ourselves.  The functionality is selective, too, which means you can turn off Zooomer's multitouch on an app-by-app basis if you're experiencing problems or just find the zooming frustrating (such as in certain games, perhaps).

HTC HD2: What WinMo Can Do In the Right Hands (First Take)

HTC HD2: What WinMo Can Do In the Right Hands (First Take)

Last week, the buzz was clearly on the DROID (see my first take here) but there was another device that was also getting a lot of attention, albeit somewhat more restrained as few folks had one to work with. A few weeks ago, I wrote a column that emphasized people shouldn't dismiss Windows Mobile. Over the last week I've been using the phone with the quiet buzz that proves that assertion. Sadly, it’s the best Windows Mobile phone that you can't buy in the US yet. What device am I talking about? None other than the HTC HD2.

The HD2 is marked by two features not usually found on most Windows Mobile phones. The first is a capacitive touch screen. This is the first Windows Mobile device that has no stylus and is totally designed for input by touch alone. The second is a 1GHz Snapdragon processor that makes Windows Mobile and especially the HTC Sense UI fly. Finally, add in a gorgeous 4.3" screen and you realize this is not your father's Windows Mobile device.

HTC HD2 review

HTC HD2 review

Twelve months ago HTC shook up the Windows Mobile world with the launch of the Touch HD, a smartphone that offered a vast touchscreen, lashings of connectivity and the latest version of their UI tweaking, TouchFLO 3D, to produce what was hitherto thought impossible: an alluring Windows Phone. Now, the company have attempted just such a revolution with Windows Mobile 6.5 in the shape of the HTC HD2. They've upped their game with a speedy Snapdragon processor, even vaster display and a fresh UI that's been educated by their recent work on Android. Can the HTC HD2 again do the unthinkable, and give us a reason to love Windows Mobile?

HTC HD2 video unboxing & first-impressions

HTC HD2 video unboxing & first-impressions

It's fair to say that the last time we saw excitement to this degree about a Windows Phone it centered on the HTC Touch HD, and so it seems only right that it's the company's successor to that handset, the HTC HD2, that is prompting such interest in 2009. Announced last month after copious rumors, what makes the HD2 special is its 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen, HTC Sense UI and 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset. It's taken a while, but the HTC HD2 has finally dropped onto the SlashGear test bench, so check out our first impressions and an unboxing video after the cut.
