The HTC HD2: Worth The Buy?
 
Buy HTC HD2 from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now
 

The HTC HD2 is one of the most exciting smartphones out on the market right now. It's managed to stay in the headlines over the past several months, and it's now on sale in Wal-Mart. T-Mobile will officially start selling the HD2 tomorrow. The question is; should you buy it?

In terms of hardware, the HTC HD2 leaves very little to be desired. It packs a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, a 4.3” touchscreen, 448 MB of RAM, and 512 MB of ROM. It uses HTC's Sense UI on top of Windows Mobile 6.5. The HD2 sports b/g WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, GPS, and a 5 MP autofocus camera with dual LED flash.

There's nothing to complain about there...except for the OS. The HD2 is like a beautiful woman with a terribly disfiguring facial scar and a violent anger problem. Close to perfection, but unmistakably marred. Windows Mobile 6.5 is lackluster at best, and Sense UI can only go so far towards fixing it.

If Windows Phone 7 Series wasn't coming out, this smartphone would be a clear 'buy!' recommendation. As it stands, I can only recommend this device if WP7S holds absolutely no allure to you. Take a look at what Microsoft has coming in the near future before you drop any scratch on the HD2.

Update:
T-Mobile will release the HTC HD2 on Wednesday, March 24th for $199 with contract.
