We’re still waiting for our HTC HD2 review unit to drop, but somewhere in the world there must be a secret supply of the promising Windows Phone as SoloPalmari have managed to acquire one for a swift unboxing. Your home experience won’t quite be the same as this – they admit this isn’t the final packaging, in fact – but considering we’ll gobble up just about any live HD2 footage we can find, you won’t hear us arguing.

In the box there’s the usual array of HTC accessories that we’re familiar with from both their Windows Mobile and Android devices. A charger, hands-free kit with in-line controls and USB cable are the main accessories; if you want the nifty in-car kit, which automatically kicks the HD2 into navigation mode, you’ll need to wait until December.
As for specifications, the HD2 has a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 4.3-inch capacitive touchscreen supporting multitouch, WiFi, Bluetooth and HSPA. It runs Windows Mobile 6.5 with HTC’s own Sense-inspired UI on top, and has a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and dual-LED flash.
