T-Mobile USA have finally confirmed pricing and availability for the HTC HD2, the Windows Mobile 6.5.3 smartphone that European users have been taunting their US counterparts with for several months now. The T-Mobile HD2 will arrive on March 24th priced at $199.99 with a new, two-year agreement.
T-Mobile have launched a new, HD2-specific mini site with more information about the smartphone. Still, most of the key specifications are well known by now: the 1GHz Snapdragon chipset, the 4.1-inch multitouch-capable capacitive touchscreen and the HTC Sense UI on top of the underlying Microsoft OS.
Some of the HD2’s sheen has been taken off in recent weeks with the news that owners won’t be able to update the device to Windows Phone 7 later in the year. Still, as we found in our review of the HD2, it’s a pretty impressive handset in its own right.
