    WOW. The HD2 runs Winmo very well. I would accept WinMo for that screen if it came to Verizon....

    The HTC HD2 SUCKS

    1. Does not fit into your pocket. Its more a tablet than a phone.
    2. Runs Windows Mobile which has an AWFUL App Market which microsoft put HEAVY restrictions on.
    3. Windows Mobile is going down hill FAST. More and more phones are supporting Android and Microsoft is losing HUGE market share. Windows Mobile will not exsist on most phones in a few years. HTC is the only Mfr left that is truly supporting it but thats changing FAST.
    3. Again AWFUL App Market for Windows Mobile. There are like 250 apps only.

    Unless you wearing midget pants. Its only a couple millimeters bigger than my storm and that fits, no problem. I agree with the rest though...well sorta ;)

    actually it doesnt. there is a more lengthy iphone/hd2 comparison on youtube. some kid from a site compares both phones browser capabilites. uuuhhgg! its gross how slow/sketchy/rough, the hd2 is compared to the iphone. doesnt even make sense seeing that the hd2 has better hardware. i blame crappy windows mobile then.

    but htc had the right idea in my opinion with the big screen. 4.3 is pushing it. i have always wanted to have a phone that was nothing but screen on the front with very thin edges. maybe 3 very very very slim physical buttons on the bottom but still all screen with no space around the edge. htc got close but i think 4.0 screen would be better.

    Im not talking about the HD2 as it is currently sold. I implied with the HD2 running Android not winmo.

    This is probably just a "what if" thread you made but in case not, here is an old story that is relevant:

    No Android-based HD2 says HTC CEO Peter Chou - SlashGear

    Experia has nice hardware but I don't really see anything that rachel UI has to add. HTC is the only one to offer software that you might match up to apple and seems to be the only one with the balls to use multitouch. The native android software engineers and even Rachel UI guys seem to be like they hired the best winmo guys, so the interface is not terrible but not even close to HTC or iphone.

    That's cause they're probably making one with an 4.3 in AMOLED screen which wouldn't technically be the same as the HD2...Its gonna launch 2 months after I get my new phone cause that's how these things work...LMAO!

    my upgrade is in august, im hoping there is an hd2 variant by then. i saw a picture of one a while back that was an hd2 size screen but a different case. i think it was a prototype. but that was a while ago.

    you obviously are a hd2 hater that has never used one.
    1....its not the much bigger than the Iphone, and thinner.
    2....cant argue here
    3....winmo on this phone is perfectly user freindly in the areas that have been tweaked by htc. which is most of them

    stop hatin cuz you cant afford it

    Mans it's a shame they didn't put Android on that HD2. Its really a shame...I might be holding out still for that 4.3 in w/ android on Verizon, however long it takes. My girlfriend and I have a family share with 3 lines for only the 2 of us, 1's due for an upgrade. If they let us upgrade both our storm1s to the Droid Bogo offer I'll just keep the other line in case something "COOLER" drops this year. I'll take the Eris, cause I don't like the droid and she has smaller fingers for the keyboard, and everything will work out. May not have the most cutting edge but at least I'll get rid of this storm1.
