According to a leaked ROM for the US version of the HTC HD2, it looks like T-Mobile USA have clinched the deal to offer the Snapdragon-based Windows Phone come Q1 2010. Unsurprisingly there’s no confirmation from the carrier themselves, but a still-in-testing ROM leaked to WMExperts contains various T-Mobile content.
Going by the contents of the External Packages folder, the US HD2 will run the Leo ROM 2.01 and Windows Mobile 6.5 build 21869. It will have Opera 18.104.22.168627 and Teeter 2.0, along with the TMOUS_Manila_Core 2.5.1921401. Obviously there’s all the regular HD2 goodness onboard, including HSDPA/HSUPA, WiFi b/g, Bluetooth, GPS and a 4.2-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen with multitouch support.
WMExperts tipsters are whispering about a March 2010 launch, right at the end of that Q1 window. Not sure what all the HD2 fuss is about? Check out our review of the Windows Mobile 6.5 device here.
