If some people are having trouble choosing between Nexus One and HTC Desire, that are basically the same device, imagine having to choose between HTC HD2 and Nexus One. The task is made easier through a comparison video made by the folks of Phonedog:
This duel is also one of operating systems, since Nexus One runs Android 2.1 and HTC HD2 runs Windows Mobile 6.5 and maybe Windows Phone 7 soon. Keep in mind that both handsets are made by HTC and have pretty much in common, like the 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, 512 MB ROM and RAM and a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash.
HTC HD2 and Nexus One both support WiFi connectivity, Bluetooth and GPS, but HTC HD2 also brings infrared support to the table. These handsets rely on multitouch displays, with the HD2 using a 3.7 inch AMOLED WVGA screen, while HD2 packs a capacitive OLED screen with high res. There’s also a pretty important price difference between these models, with the Nexus One retailing for $530, while HTC HD2 costs $740.
