HTC has come a long way since its inception to become one of the best PDA/smartphone manufacturers in the world. I would have to say that I've started noticing it when O2 launched their XDA Orbit and EXEC PDA/phone years ago. Back then, the most criticised feature of a PDA/phone will be the battery standby power and the OS. Usually, a PDA/phone will only have around 24 hours of juice if you keep on using it throughout the day. When it comes to the OS, it is no other than Microsft Windows Mobile 5.
Time has come to reveal a true champion - the HTC HD2. It is probably the only one to be able to exceed the expectation of a consumer for now. Look at the specifications of the HTC HD2. It comes with a 4.3" capacitive screen, loaded with 512MB RAM and 448MB ROM; bluetooth 2.1+EDR, wi-fi, a memory slot, Windows Mobile 6.5, mp3 player and it is capable of voice recording and video recording at 720p!!! That will be a first for HTC because there has never been a HTC phone that could superceed the Apple Iphone! The heart of the HTC HD2 is an ARM Snapdragon 1Ghz CPU! That is simply marvellous!!! It is almost twice as fast as the Iphone 3GS and certainly normal recording is much better than the Iphone 3GS! It comes with a 5MP digital camera with a flash.
I have to say that you guys need to go to your local Vodafone shop to experience the HTC HD2. I have played with it for a while and the menu speed is so much better than the 4.1" Toshiba TG01! The HTC HD2 is slimmer than the TG01 and lighter than both the TG01 and the Iphone 3GS! The best of all is that the HTC HD2 could be yours for free on Vodafone's £40 a month for 18 months or £35 a month for 24 months. It's your call guys.
I do believe that it will be much better for you to take out a contract online or give Vodafone customer service a call. This is because you will get an additional 300 minutes and free internet apart from the 900 minutes and unlimited text (on the £40 a month, 18 months contract). I don't think that you will get the same deal if you were to take out a contract in a shop.
