T-Mobile HTC HD2 price leaks, plus CLIQ XT and Nokia Nuron details

While we've pretty much known that T-Mobile plan to launch the HTC HD2 in the US sometime this month, what we haven't been aware of is what sort of pricing we should expect.  Thanks to a nifty leak from Tmonews, however, we now know figures for not only the HD2 but the CLIQ XT and the Nokia Nuron (aka the ExpressMusic 5230).  Best news?  The HD2 isn't as expensive as we feared it might be.

HTC HD2 Windows Phone 7 update axed: buttons to blame?

Talk of a Windows Phone 7 update for the HTC HD2 has circulated pretty much since the phone was launched, but despite ostensibly positive hints from HTC themselves, it looks like Microsoft's newly-rigid hardware guidelines have scuppered the Snapdragon smartphone's chances.  Speaking to APC Magazine, Natasha Kwan, General Manager for Microsoft’s Mobile Communications Business in the Asia-Pacific region pointed out that the HD2 won't qualify for an upgrade as "it doesn't have the three buttons".

T-Mobile USA HD2 gets memory boost; Euro model may miss WinMo7?

US HTC HD2 owners could see their patience rewarded with boosted specifications when the Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphone arrives on T-Mobile in March.  The official listing for the handset has gone live on HTC's site, and where the original European model packs a 512MB ROM and 448MB RAM, the US version will apparently get 1GB ROM and 576MB RAM.  That should mean the US-spec HD2 runs faster and has more room for onboard applications, as well as having longer-term implications for Windows Mobile 7 upgrades.
