Overview

I am, the Juggernaut!

As we wrap up the year 2009, we look back at some of the defining moments in the mobile market. Both Mobile World Congress and CommunicAsia have given us lots of reasons to keep our pockets ready for faster, stronger and better mobile devices in the ensuing months. Hardware isn't the only thing that's on our radar, because there's so much more happening on the software front such as the rise of Google Android and its various iteration from 1.0, to 1.5 (Cupcake), 1.6 (Donut) and 2.0 (Eclair), iPhone OS 3.0 and of course, the ever-in-debate Microsoft Windows Mobile
6.5.

While HTC has shown increasing interest in the Android platform, it has also shown an undying loyalty to Microsoft and its interim mobile OS. The best representation of this support is seen in the final product in HTC's 2009 lineup, the HTC HD2.

Stating the obvious, the HD2 will be the direct successor to the HTC Touch HD which surprised us with its 3.8-inch screen that was unrivaled by the competition just over a year ago. A year later, with the competition catching on and introducing similar sized devices, the Taiwanese company ups the ante once more with the introduction of a 4.3-inch capacitive touch screen with multi-touch support on the HD2. The upgrades are aplenty, such as a new Qualcomm Snapdragon 1GHz processor and higher RAM capacity. HTC's trademark UI has also evolved, given a facelift and name change from HTC TouchFlo 3D to HTC Sense.

If all that has got you interested in learning more about the HD2 juggernaut, here's a glimpse of what you can expect for its features, before we give you the full length review of this powerhouse device in the following pages.
