Steve Ballmer, Microsoft’s CEO joined Peter Chou, HTC CEO and Harvey Chang, Taiwan Mobile today, as they announced the US availability of the very hot smartphone HTC HD2. Turns out that the device will reach the States in early 2010, but pricing information has yet to be revealed.
Also, we learn that the handset is shipping in Europe and Asia from today, being available in Asian countries starting next month. The HTC and Microsoft officials stated that they’re proud of the result of the cooperation between the two companies and why shouldn’t they, since HD2 is the first WM phone to use the HTC Sense UI, in a brilliant way.
This 4.3 inch capacitive touchscreen display smartphone is ultra-thin and provides a crisp and clear image on the screen, plus great processing power, thanks to its 1 GHz Snapdragon CPU. Said display support viewing, zooming and resizing websites, Microsoft Office files, PDF documents and pictures, simply by using your fingers.
HTC HD2 will come with an optional car kit, that will turn the handset into a finger friendly in car navigation system.
